I admire you. You have great talent (and generosity to share this with us). I wish Duolingo was enabled on the Amazon echo where I could practice using the Alexa engine. I'm brand new to taking Italian and I would love to practice dialog with Alexa.

This is great. Thank you. Do you have any plans to make an app out of it? It would be useful for learning a lot of languages.

I noticed one that does not make sense: it asks to conjugate piovere with tu, and piovere is impersonal, people cannot rain.

the same happens with "snow" but other than that, it is really great!!!

thanks :)

December 26, 2016

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

ok, i did it for "piovere", but didn't touch "nevicare" because there is the mark "prevalentemente usato come verbo impersonale" http://italian-verbs.com/italyanskiye-glagoly/konyugatsiya.php?verbo=6220

February 18, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JDJ0xO

I think when you use Piovere with a "You" conjugation it changes the meaning "You Cry" rather than "You Rain", but this is also just something I recall hearing about. Non sicuro ;D

December 25, 2016

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

Nope, "tu piovi" doesn't exist, as you can see here. The verb for "to cry" is "piangere" :)

Although it is possible to say "piovi" or "piovono" if necessary, but the meaning would still be "to rain". For example the title of the movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was translated in Italian as Piovono polpette ("It's raining meatballs"). Not something you'd hear everyday, of course :)

Also, the expression "piovuto dal cielo" can be translated as "fell out of the sky", or even "came out of the blue". So I guess you could say to someone, "sei piovuto dal cielo"! I still can't think of any situation in which one would say "tu piovi", but who knows...

But if I were talking not to a person, but to the sky or cloud?.. Like in literature or in poems? Or I just didn't have anyone to talk to :). Then possible?

December 25, 2016

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

Sure, why not? In a poem you could probably say that to anything that's falling from the sky, even a raindrop :) As long as it made sense, it wouldn't be wrong.

That's probably the only difference between English and Italian. In English you can't say that something is raining, while in Italian it would be acceptable, because the verb would be interpreted as "falling from the sky". For example, the song "It's raining men" in Italian wouldn't be translated as "Sta piovendo uomini", but as "Stanno piovendo uomini" or "Piovono uomini", as if it's the men doing the action (the action of falling from the sky, that is).

Having to capitalize or not capitalize per the example and type in both lui/lei is a hassle.

December 25, 2016

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

yes, you are right, i updated the application, please test now

December 26, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pablo-Enzo

Ciao! Buonissimo strumento.

There is some sort of off-by-one error in the Imperative tense, because in plural pronouns random_pronoun seems to point to the incorrect pronoun, and it also never excercises the Loro pronoun.

December 26, 2016

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

thanks for testing! yes, there was an error, i made new version now, please check :)

Hi, think I've found an error: [loro] [riempire] [indicavo passato prossimo] I answered with [hanno riempito], was marked incorrect although it was one of the given correct answers.

thanks, i created the ticket https://github.com/Sinkler/italian-verbs-trainer/issues/3 and will fix it soon

January 4, 2017

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

i fixed it

February 18, 2017

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

I attempted to use the program with the passato prossimo verbs, looking for a place to use è (such as "è andato") but I never got a combination of lui or lei using a verb with an "essere" auxilliary.
I'm curious; is that condition is actually possible?

If it was possible, how do you enter "è" if you con't have a keyboard or entry method that supports the accent?
Would e' work? Or enter it without the apostrophe, simply as "e" (which we both know is incorrect, since "e" = "and")?

This is so great! I wonder if you have thought to build on it so that, for example, the ones that you get wrong are saved in the session and can be repeated until you get them right?

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

Hi, thank you! Yes, I have this thought, at the moment I think about upgrading this app. In my mind it will be the place where you can save progress, see statistics, errors, etc. But it will take some time of course.
