    Ok, I decided to do something worthwhile during the holidays so I'm trying to self-teach Italian. On the whole, it's been going quite well but I'm not really sure how to pronounce 'gli' (whether it's within a word or a seperate one) - I know it's not phonetic but if anyone could explain how it's pronounced it would be much appriciated. Thanks
