Italian Phrase of the Day: B come Bambino



B come Bambino = B for Baby

After everything you’ve learned so far, I have now realised that it is time to learn how to pronounce all of those phrases.

The Italian alphabet contains twenty-one. Five other letters are found in foreign words in Italian:

“A” like father

“B” like balloon

“C” like the “ch” in church, if before an “e” or an “i”

“C” like cat, for the rest of the time

“D” like debt

“E” either like bet or pay

“F” like fair

“G” like gem, if before an “e” or an “i”

“G” like goal, for the rest of the time

“H” is silent, is often used between “g” or “c” and “e” and “i”, to change the sound

“I” like machine

“J” is a foreign letter

“K” is another foreign letter

“L” like liquid

“M” like machine

“N” like navy

“O” like ball, can also be like boat

“P” like pizza

“Q” has the same sound as a “c” in cat

“R” is always rolled. Not sure there is an equivalent in English

“S” is like maze when is single, or like snake when doubled

“T” like take

“U” like boot

“V” like vision

“W” is another foreign letter

“X” is another foreign letter

“Y” is another foreign letter

“Z” is “dz” when single, or “ts” when doubled
