Wow thank you! No I am not a teacher but I did consider such a vocation some time ago.

Your hint on how to add "no" onto the infinitive form, to create the "loro" version has really helped my pronunciation. I could never decide if leggono was "LEGGO-no" or "Ledge-OH-no" (good old "Francesca" 's voice was hit and miss).

Knowing that the -no part is soft and not stressed is an excellent tip.

I also added a comment on your youtube site about where you might look for inspiration in making another video.

Grazie!!

Thanks! It reminds me of the trouble I used to have 15 years ago with the silent -ent in French.
