The pronunciation of this word is difficult to hear, even with selected 'slower' function
For once let me differ. I've been losing hearts on listening,but this one is audible enough per me.
it is almost impossible to understand
I just took a guess and hoped for the best
in italiano, "C"+ "i / E" --> read /tʃ/ , Example : Ciotola, cena, pancia... "C" + "A/O/ U/ HI/ HE "---> read /k/ , Example : Cane, Chi,...
Why are we stuck here learning all the kitchen and cafe words (that you can just read off the price tags) before most of the important grammar, before, say, family members or numbers? Anyone else think it's strange?...
I noticed that you don't learn a lot about numbers or family. I studied Japanese in high school and numbers and directions (left, right, north, south etc.) was the first thing we learnt. Its weird!
I couldent hear it and put a chocolate but that didn't make sense but i though they ment a chocolate bar or something
Although "una ciotola" is indeed a word for bowl, it is not one that I remember using much.
For the purposes of these exercises, it is probably best to use what Duo has given you. However, for future use, you may like to check out these other words for "bowl", depending on context.
Thanks. I used the word ciotola for bowl with some native speakers and they giggled as if this is a childish word! I couldn't remember the alternatives that they gave me at the time. Unfortunately duolingo only uses ciotola. (All the way down the tree).
The only translation of "ciotola" is bowl. The term comes from the French "bol", with the same meaning. (un bol de riz = a bowl of rice). Similar, but not equal to the "ciotola", is the "terrina" (a terracotta bowl, so said because it is made by "terra"(=soil), or the "scodella" (diminutive of L."scutra" = dish), which has a larger "mouth" compared with the ciotola. Who laughs about this word has a poor knowledge of the Italian language. You have to giggle at them
If the noun is grammatically feminine, it's
una. If the noun is grammatically masculine, it's
How is "ciotola" pronounced "chotola"? Because that's what it sounds like to me and seeing that word one time isn't enough for me to remember how to spell it.

cioccolato (choh-koh-lah-toh), ciotola (choh-toh-lah), ciao (chow)
