The first word is not "Lo" with an "l", but rather "Io" with a capital "i".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lindsay36945

U hav 2 read the tips


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vickie299936

Thank you! I'll try to re.ember that!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aseye793237

I typed lo sono un uomo and it doesnt accept it yet provides that as the same answer. I am uanble to move forward with this problem


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CorkyOClai1

I typed the correct answer and it will not accept


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Justin581205

It's io not lo Thanks captial I and small l for looking the same.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Janet444423

Did you type l instead of capital i?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gchalon

The font makes it difficult to distinguish "I" (Up-case) from "l' (low-case).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Belasyse93

How comes the first word is "lo" not "io" which is the suggestion jw?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Beastie_Boy

Its actually a capitol 'i'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sinesja

ok, newbie question: what's the difference of l'uomo and un uomo?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wonderingsouls

l'uomo is 'the man' and un uomo is 'a man'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Roxy70783

My answer is correct, but it says that is not, so im not able to move on.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lindsay36945

My dogs name is roxy


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gandalf2002

My answer was right:you said the same as me!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexMPorto

Why can't I use the "uno"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/grossileila

When the word starts with "a" "e" "i" "o" "u" you use UN if it's a masculine word. In that case "uomo" starts with "u", so it's UN uomo


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/speakingswag6969

because then you b using it in its wrong context, uno = one, un = the. you want to say i am the man not i am one man.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bruirc

I think that "un" means "a", no "the", cause "the" defines and "a" no


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Katelynn924547

Because it is a different world like French. Une is an and un is a

omg it wont work i know im 7 and im learning this but this is werid im speaking it in the thing and IT WILL NOT WORK


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RedBaron80

What is the different between uno and un


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/valb12

the font makes it difficult to determine whether to use a capital i or lower case l. it's distracting and difficult to decipher. Can it be fixed?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KobiMontan

Io sono un uomo ( I am a man) am I wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GarethdeBeer

Mi = me Sono = me am That doesn't make sense. Instead you would say: io sono = I am


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Albertogigi

In english when one word start with a e i o u say "an" in italian when one word start with vocal if it is masculine use un, and un' for singlular feminine. ex. un'anatra = a duck un'esperienza = an experience


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ShubhadaKo

Can anybody explain me the difference between un'uomo and un uomo???


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/C00L10

Un'uomo is uno uomo... Un uomo is just un uomo. They both mean "a man" However, uno would be the improper article for "man" because it is really used for words beginning with z or st-which uomo doesn't begin with... Therefore, it is un uomo not un'uomo (uno uomo).

Whats the difference between un and una


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LawsonBald2

I typed in lo sono un uomo and it said it was wrong despite the fact that the correct answer is the same.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SophiaSimp8

Any spanish speakers here? If you are familiar with spanish in any way, use that to your ability. They are more alike than they seem.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Brad889048

My answer is exactly what the answer says it should be and it will not accept it. Getting annoying.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/matrixmary

If you have it set so you can listen to what she is saying you will know when it is io with an i and when it is lo with an L.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Summer609008

Why can't i get past this???? I've typed it in multiple times!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BarbaraWri5

I am typing correct answer but it is marked wrong.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/falsa3

is it possible to omit "io" ? just say: sono un uomo


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Noor_purpe

' I am' Mean ' Io Sono' so why Is it 'Sono un uomo'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Liliana148245

I have the same problem, I right correctly but don't accept?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Liliana148245

I wrote correctly for about 8 times , what going on? I stack there.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/shaloo234456

Wow.. So they are teaching it incorrectly?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Carina537918

I type the same thing as the answer but marks it incorrect.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maria1913

Glad to have this sorted out. Thanks...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/33wv1

Why the right answer is "un uomo" although the tips say that I should write "l'uomo"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wolfgang34121

"Sono un uomo" is also accepted.
