I think "pasto" was meal, and "pasta" is pasta. Either way, I thought the voice was really hard to hear on this one. Sounded like she lisped her way through "pasta".
pasto is meal and pasta is pasta and your right i could barely hear her
Pasto means meal. Pasta is pasta. Notice when you go to an italian restaurant and the menu has a section for "Anti Pasto". Anti is before, and pasto is meal. "Before the meal"
Hence, appetizers :)
In the beginning of the lesson "pasta" was translated as "dough" and now you don't accept "The dough is on the plate"?
i think it is because dough could mean pasta, bread, pizza.... and we dont eat bread in a plate, for example. I am not a native speaker, but i think it depends of context
dough means pasta but the raw one (impasto), once you cook it it becomes pasta, pizza, bread, a cake...
It would be nice if Duo supplied some congugation charts for us. Endings, articles, etc.
Does 'nel' mean 'on the' or 'in the'? I answered 'The pasta is in the plate' and it corrected me to 'The pasta is on the plate'.
"nel" means "in the", "on the" means "sul" but i think you can use both of them in this case
When to use nel, nelle, nello, and any other form of nel- ? Please & Thank you
Thats what i thought. I put "in the plate" thinking it was a direct translation but got it wrong
