Here is the link to the Vimeo diction videos:  https://vimeo.com/album/2089168

Vimeo was down this morning so it took much longer to get everything up.

Remember the quiz on Thursday (Italian Vowel Triangle).

You owe me a review of your video. (using ipa from ipasource.com)  See attached pic for reminders of how I want that done.

Anyone absent from class needs to sing on Thursday.

Find three words from "O Cessate" that are representative of each vowel on the IPA Vowel Triangle for Italian.
