Italian - His face is rough

We just learned in Italian her hands are soft is Le sue mani sono morbide.

To say his face is rough you would say il suo volto è ruvida.
We can break it up into four words:
His - il suo - sounds like eel soo-oh /?/
face - volto - sounds like voh-l-toh /?/
is - è - Sounds like ay /?/
rough - ruvida - Sounds like roo-vee-dah /?/

So all together il suo volto è ruvida sounds like eel soo-oh voh-l-toh ay roo-vee-dah.
