Pronunciation of "Bicchierino" in lesson 3.2 etc




I've just got to this lesson and it seems to me that Alex pronounces bicchierino with a “ch” sound (i.e. English ch ) whereas it should, I think, be the Italian hard c sound due to the ch combination?

I did a search and in later lessons Maria pronounces it with a distinctive hard “c”.

Can we assume that, although he is obviously fluent, Alex is mistaken here?  

Or is my hearing going :) ?



Hi Peter, 

Thanks for your question and please accept my apologies for the delay!

You are absolutely right, "bicchierino" requires a hard "c" sound.

Salute! :D
