The word "dunce" doesn't exist in Italian... I've just told you how it would have been spelled...

I realised. But America has people from every country in it, so Italian-Americans might have pronounced the word differently, leading to more new words. That is how new words enter the language, isn't it? Emotion: rolleyes

Emotion: star
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I guess so Joy... Emotion: smile


Dunsky is a Latvian surname, perhaps shortened. Nothing to do with Italians

Dunsky means "from Gdansk", the Polish shipyard town.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

It simply means someone who's stupid/has no clue what they're talking about on a particular subject.

Pronounced dunskee

I use that term and forgetaboutit.

because of that movie
