Learn Italian - Education Online|
Italian is a Romance language derived from Latin and spoken mainly in Europe. Unlike most other Romance languages it retains Latin's contrast between short and long consonants. The Italian language is widely taught in many schools around the world.
Italian vowels are always pronounced very clearly. When vowels are grouped together in a word,
they are always pronounced separately. Most consonants are pronounced as in English. Italian is a phonetic language which means that it is spoken the way it is written. Italian and English share the Latin alphabet.
