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 :) ?
