Ronnie and Pauly D from "Jersey Shore" have barely mastered English -- but TMZ has learned they're already trying their hands at Italiano ... all in preparation for their new season abroad.

A rep from Rosetta Stone tells TMZ, they sent their Italian language program to several members of the "Jersey Shore" cast -- and according to a source close to the show ... Ronnie and Pauly have already made impressive progress with the program.

No word on the other cast members' language-learning plans.

If they can't speak their mother tongue, then they aren't Italians. My daughter she is half Italian and am Norwegian-Venezuelan. I speak Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, English with no help of school. But anyway...these tools deserve media whore awards. They are ugly as pigs.

Rosetta Stone can be pretty pricey. These two could afford it.
I suppose it's advertising for them.

People watch to see the train wreck. What kind of show will it be of them site seeing in Italy? Sounds boring.

As a woman married to an Italian man, if they can't speak Italian already, then they aren't Italians. They're from friggin JERSEY!

Isn't it bad enough that MTV made America suffer with this? Now they are going to force them on Italy? No wonder America and Americans looks like MORONS and IDIOTS to other countries...when THIS IS WHAT THEY SEE OF AMERICANS.

LOL. I am from Rome, Italy. I speak Italian, Spanish, Latin fluently. These guys are not going to learn any language correctly and quickly. Those language courses teach tourist terms and made-up situations they will not even get in. I guarantee most of what they learn will not be understandable in conversational Italian. They need to learn conversational Italian NOT 'My Pencil is yellow.' rubbish.

Who care's?

YOU should. If you'd paid attention in school you would have learned that it's "cares" not care's." English your native language?

The title of this post doesn't make sense. Not knowing a certain language isn't called a speech impediment!

The entire Jersey Shore "cast" and people like them give the human race a bad name. What will the aliens think when they come to colonize the planet?

First off Ronnie hasn't made ANY progress because he said he just ordered the thing the other day. He hasn't used it so how has be made such progress on it? He never said he did. Also, not knowing a language is not a speech impediment. If you'r going to make things up, do something that's funny, interesting, and not so easily torn to shreds. If I want crappy reporting like this I'll read US Weekly.
