Double The Consonant

In this episode we’ll talk about something that’s very specific to the Italian language, that is, the pronunciation of double consonants. We’ll see how to avoid some funny mistakes people can do if they don’t pay attention to it.

And, to make it “stick”, we’re going to use rhymes and a little bit of poetry, like my elementary teacher, ms. Piotta, used to do. Thanks, ms. Piotta, your rhymes are still useful after all these years.
