i'd like to learn italian! - Hi! I would like to Classroom with you so that I may learn Italian. I am an American, with Italian heritage, but all of my Italian speaking relatives have passed away. I barely speak anything...just a few words here and there, so let me know if you are willing to take on the task! Send me an email!

ok due to high demands. lesson one. - c before "e" or "i" has a (tch) sound. like CHAIR
ch is pronounced like the letter "k" in kit
g before 'e' or 'i' is pronounced like the 'j' in JET.
gh is pronounced like 'g' in GET.
gl before 'e' or 'i' is normaly pronounced like the 'lli' in the word MILLION and sometimes like 'gl' in GLOVE
gn is pronounced like the 'ny' in canyon or a fancy 'n~' in the spanish language
sc before 'e' or 'i' is pronounced 'sh'

And of course one of the hardest or confusing things about the italian dialect is the double consonants sounds. example.:::: ano = anus anno = year
a mispronounciation could leave in a room full of people laughing at you not with you. :P
so i'll go through and show a quick example of the proper pronounciation of the double consonants.

example. 'tt' as tutto ( def: all or everything ) tutto is pronounced like as if you are saying --- haT Trick
get it ?
write in here and let me know if this is being helpful in some way. if i get enough replies ill continue teaching short lessons in here..

a presto!
