Making Music with Digital Audio Tools

Learning Italian Phonetics through Web-Based Music and Tongue Twisters

Rosella Bellagamba, Lecturer II in Romance Languages and Literatures, LSA (rosellab@umich.edu)

Dr. Bellagamba focused on creating interactive web-based exercises for students to learn Italian Phonetics.  The exercises range from filling-in-blanks and matching words to recording pronunciations and comparing students’ pronunciations to the existing ones recorded by a native speaker.  This set of exercises adds fun to learning language and appeals to students’ learning styles.  The templates for the interactive exercises will be useful for others teaching basic Italian.
