I don't know about you guys, I'm having fun learning Italian. It clear to understand if you keep making notes as you proceed. :)
I need to do this... having never been a note-taker, how would you suggest I take notes?
I write down the words that i usually do bad with and the translation and go over them until i remember.
I suggest you write the word you got wrong and next to it write the corrected word underlining the wrong letter, with a ^ for space.
I need to write down the hard words and phrases and translations. I sometimes do this severaltimes. My spelling gets better
I guess just take down the key words and then u have a list by the end of the day of words u should know and go over. The next day start a new list and learn that!
I do not believe "una" was ever introduced beforehand - previous sections were all about "il" and "la". I only got it right because I made an educated guess out of failing with "il ragazzo" a second ago. The class should start with differentiating "la" from "una" etc.
Do you know you can click on a word and it will tell you the translation? Helps a lot.
La means the (feminine) and una means a (feminine). Just the only difference is one is definite and the other isn't
"La" and "il" means "the" and "Una" and "Un" means one or a :) it's not that difficult...
this is my 3rd time trying through the first "basic" lesson. never tried learning another language but this un la il and un stuff is making me fail. I completely agree.
Its a pain alright but dont give up you will eventually get it took me about a month so keep going and I suggest watching something in Italian etc... To get the feel for it Yes the feel for it is very important later on
It might be because 'la' is for feminine words. Try 'lo'. But if the next word starts with a vowel then you can drop the 'o'.
im doing well because i already know Spanish so if you know Spanish so if you know a Latin language use what you already know :D
Learn Italian is a blast. Thank you all for your suggestions, coments, and support
it's not as difficult as it seems, a little bit of effort on it and you don not make this simple mistakes. It's only a matter of attention
Ragazza is for "Girl" Like a tween or teen. Bambina is for "Female Children"
In general, the article must agree with the noun - masculine article, masculine noun and feminine article, feminine noun. There are exceptions but worry about those when you have the sense of this firmed up.
I was using a sample of Rosetta stone and for boy and girl they had it as bambina and bambino.. Why Is it now different??
Genders ... una is feminine and un is masculine. Feminine words often end in "a" (like unA ragazzA, and unA penA) it's the rhyming endings that make Italian such a poetic sounding language. Rhyming words (especially when you get to plurals) will help you a little with learning.
i thought una was used before a vowel. i don't understand why una was used here. i thought it was un
For anyone confused femine words in italian usually end in -a and masculine end in -o
i do this in school, im currently in 6th grade, i like duolingo alot :D
im learning italian, im just starting :)
Un and una what is the difference? Both mean the same... So were is un used and where is una used?
I think "una bambina" is a little gril (up to 11 or 12), "una ragazzina" is a teenage girl, and "una ragazza" is a young adult girl.
i forget my grammar when trying to speak; I forgot to use una for the and I used la (ragazza)
First you should learn articoli determinativi and articoli indeterminativi with different branches: Maschile / femminile... Singolare / plurale
Shouldn't it have been Un instead of Una? Una means 'one' whereas Un means 'A'
I also keep notes and consider making myself flashcards to practice even more.
Is telling me to translate a word i have never heard, i believe they have to show the translation first...
