How to Improve Your Italian Pronunciation

By Manu Venditti | Advanced

In this video, we are going to discuss about pronunciation and we’re going to take it to the next level! This topic will be a little bit difficult to talk about as I am going to attempt to give you an incorrect pronunciation to show you what a better pronunciation would be.

My approach in today’s video is for you to see what you could be improving so that you sound even better but it’s definitely not me mocking anybody’s accent!

Let’s start!

First you have to focus on the 5 vowels – A, E, I, O, and U!

Focus on the open and clear vowels.

Same weight for almost all syllables

Don’t over stress the vowels.

Trust that melody comes from vowels not length.

In this video lesson I gave enough examples for each of the above and went into detail as well, so please do take the time to watch it!
