Italian - Their car is tall

We just learned in Italian:
this chair is small is La sedia è piccolo,
my drink is cold is La mia bevanda è freddo,
and your food is hot is Il vostro cibo è caldo.

To say their car is tall you would say La loro auto è alto.
We can break it up like this:
Their - La loro - sounds like lah loh-doh /?/
car - auto - sounds like ah-oo-toh /?/
is - è - Sounds like ay /?/
tall - alto - Sounds like ah-l-toh /?/

So all together La loro auto è alto sounds like la loh-doh ah-oo-toh ay ah-l-toh.
