English term or phrase: native speaker
Hello.

I do not speak Icelandic.

1. What is the best (concise) way to say "Italian (native speaker)"?
2. Is following translation right?
- [English] = 5 languages: Italian (native speaker), German, English, French, Spanish
- [Icelandic] = 5 tungumál: ítalska (innfæddur maður ræðumaður), þýska, enska, franska, spænska

Thank you very much
