Recommended Posts

Italian fans, I think we have to teach some Italian words to Mika!

In XL magazine interview he said not to know Italian, just a few words...:thumbdown:

 

We can help him, don't you think? What would you like him to say in Italian in MIlan??? So MIKA, read and repeat::naughty:

 

lesson nr.1

Italian: le fan italiane sono le migliori!

English: Italian fans are the best in the world!

 

lesson nr. 2

Italian: tornerò presto per un altro concerto!

English: I'll be back to you soon with another concert!

 

lesson nr. 3

Italian: vi amo tutte!

English: I love you all!

 

Now it's your turn.....

(waiting for the concerct drives me crazy a bit :boxed: )

 

mika, here are some pronunciation hints:

 

ch = sounds like 'K'

gl= sounds like Spanish 'll' in paella (do you know that? I love paella!)

u = always sounds as 'oo'

lesson nr. 5

Italian: ehi tu, in prima fila, vieni sul palco a cantare con me!

English: hey, you in the front row, come up to the stage and sing with me!

 

lesson nr. 6

Italian: ci vediamo dietro il palco,lasciamo andare via tutti...

English: see you behind the stage, let the others get out of here...

 

How can we manage with pronunciation? We cannot use phonetic symbols, that's for sure!

i love Italian, sounds great(especially when coming from valentino rossi:wub2::blush-anim-cl: )! i can pretty much understand what it means when i read it or hear it(that is if the person doesn't talk too fast) ecause it's closely related to romanian, but speaking it is a much harder nut to crack..i might get some grammar books when i get some spare time.but this thread helps too:biggrin2:

 

and about the pronounciation, you could try first explaining the general rules by making analogies with words in english(such as perché - ketchup) and then explain how to pronounce exceptions when you encounter them. and you can also highlight the longer or accentuated vowels by using capital letters(like italiAno). and the rest...just improvise:thumb_yello:

I learn to speak the correct pronounciation by singing them in songs first. I am quater Italian, and have met my Italian cousins a few times, but I don't really know much of the language. However, I have learnt "I won't say I'm in Love" (from disney's Hercules) in Italian and i just love singing it.

I know this isnt really related to the whole "learn italian, mika!" lol but i was just answering the whole pronounciation thing.

 

yeah.

 

 

OOOH ACTUALLY I GOT ONE.

 

 

Buongiorno Bella :wink2:

 

lol i think i spelt that wrong but oh well!

right spelling! Buongiorno bella to you too!

I learnt English exactly in the same way: singing songs and learning lyrics by heart (trying to translate Them in a way)....long time ago, then school came, and University of foreign languages, time spent abroad, teaching.... but now I find a useful refresh in this forum...I AM USING YOU ALL!!! EH EH EH:naughty:
