English Pronunciation Problems of Italian Native Speakers | ITTT TEFL BLOG
One of the biggest challenges when teaching English to Italians is its phonetics. The difficulty of the Italian people when pronouncing words in English possibly depends on the fact that they are rarely taught the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) at school and university. In addition, movies and TV series are usually dubbed in their own language. As a consequence, they are not as exposed to the English language as in other European countries. Italian does not have aspirated vowels and it is read exactly the same way it is pronounced: when learning English, Italians tend to pronounce words as they are spelled.
