5 Terrible English performances of Italian politicians

Silvio Berlusconi terrible english

As you probably know, Italian people are not very good with languages. Well, it sounds like a stereotype but it’s actually true: Education First, a company specialized in academic education and language training, has created an index of English Proficiency to rate English knowledge through the world, and the Italy’s results are quiet abysmal for a developed country.
