Davvero? Sei arrivato nella macchina del tempo?
Is this something Marty McFly would say as he hopped out of the Delorean???
Of course not! He can't let on. That would jeopardize the space-time continuum!
The old Biff Tannen did
'They are from the eighties' is also accepted. Is there any way to discern the two sentences in Italian?
Only if you include 'io sono' or 'loro sono'
its one of those that vary depending on the context its being used... here it accepts both "i am" and "they are" because theres no context so it can mean both... i think.
Unfortunately, it isn't now...
What in the heck does I am from the 80's mean?
As in, I was born/raised/grew up during the 1980s.
Oh, yes, now I see. I have heard the phrase 'he is a product of those times', this is similar. Thanks.
Appalling audio here - impossible to make it out. Reported 30.3.15
Totally agree! It's like she forgot this was a beginner class.
Why couldn't we put "I am from the 1980s"?
It doesnt specify if the 1900s. Also it wants to show that "gli anni ottante" is equivalent to "eighties" which is more informal
Because it might as well be the 1880ies?
Because there's no 19 in the phrase?
I am from the 70's, I'm getting old :-(
I wish we could slow the words down with the speaking exercises
how about if I was like 80+ years. "I am in my eighties." ... what would that be in italian? or wouldn't you say so?
It's really difficult to tell what is said, it sounds like "del" not "degli", even if you slow it down.
Me too! :)
With no context how do you know it's "i" not "they"? I have really big troubles with the two sono.
Not really your problem, it is the sentence that has no context. I do not remember exactly but I believe Duo accepts either answer: 'I' or 'They'.
This is a really dumb sentence out of context.
