Italian is a beautiful phonetic language. This makes learning the proper pronunciation very easy. With a few exceptions, all letters are pronounced, and there are a few consistent pronunciation rules to learn.
Esercitiamo la Nostra Bocca is a series of ten-word exercises designed to allow the student to practice Italian pronunciation. The words I use are chosen specifically for helpful pronunciation practice, but have interesting meanings as well. These words should be practiced out-loud in the classroom and/or home environment.
The student is encouraged to write down example sentences in Italian, using the words presented in the exercise. The list of meanings can be found in small print at the bottom of the page.
