Learn Italian Pod[edit]

Hey, so I've been trying to study a little Italian every day using podcasts from http://learnitalianpod.com. It's a great resource. So today I took a look at their newest entry, a phrasebook. They've based it on this article! I think this is a perfect example of the power of the Creative Commons and free content in general!

Thank you Jane and Massimo ! -- Mark 03:35, 25 May 2006 (EDT)

External links[edit]

How do you pronounce 'j'?[edit]

Is it as in 'jug' or the French 'j'aim' and the English 'pleasure'? No, it's more like a normal i: ex. junior=iunior, Juventus=Iuventus. I disagree. I (as most people) say "junior" as if it were spelt "giunior", but I agree with Juventus. If they come from foreign languages (e.g. Jabba - as in "Jabba the hutt") we tend to imitate the pronunciation, but it's not a general rule.

"Learning more" section[edit]

I think that section is just an invitation for spamming wars, such as just started. I am simply going to delete the section. Anyone who wants to find audio instruction is unlikely to have too much trouble web searching, and in any case, no article is supposed to have an external links section, which is effectively what that section is.
