Le frustrazioni aumentavano man mano che la scadenza si avvicinava rapidamente.

English Translation

Frustrations mounted as the deadline rapidly approached.

No question, just loving “man mano che” as a phrase, which according to the explanation is an expression that means “as” or “while,” indicating that one action happens in conjunction with another.
I do hope this is a phrase Italians use a lot !


I think it means “gradually” or “little by little” - I read a lot of Italian books and it features quite a lot. Lovely phrase.
