How do you put the accent mark over the e for is? When ever i try they say its wrong and when i skip it they mark it as right but say that i need an accent mark madonna mia! lol.
When in doubt, I always listen to the slow option, just to double check. It is usually clearer because it separates the words which is easier for my foreign ears. I am getting better at understanding the fast versions, though.
On my ipad, for some forms of the questions, there is a small blue "button" with a turtle on it just below and to the right of the blue audio button next to the question. If you click the turtle button, it slows down the audio and separates the words, making it much easier to understand. :)
ok lui=he and lei=she, but how about "egli" and "ella"? old italian or something?
A good way to remember the word 'lui' is to think "LUI, HE was a rich man"
I'm not sure I understand your question, but I'll give it a shot. Just 'e' with no accent means 'and'. If you have 'è' it means 'is' as in "He/she/it is." I hope that is what you are asking. :)
yes thanks for that karen! so the `apostropie' doesn't go both ways above the E? thought i saw both in the options.. (maybe its for the other languages, like the upside down '?' in spannish) anyway Grazie.
Think about the sound "wo" in world and the sound "mo" in mobile and put them together!
Being hard of hearing an trying to learn a new language is very difficult. But being able to click on the individual words and also being able to hear it said all together is super helpful!
Nothing is silent! The u just becomes mixed with the letters around it so it can blend out, but it is definitely not silent.
In Italian, every vowel is pronounced as it's own thing - it's just fluency and speed that can make the vowels sound different when there are other letters around it.
oh no! un si usa davanti ai nomi maschili inizianti per vocale (un armadio);
(UN+male nouns beginning with vowel)
- uno è utilizzato davanti ai nomi maschili che cominciano per (UNO+male nouns beginning with):
gn- (uno gnomo);
pn- (uno pneumatico); ps- (uno psicologo); z- (uno zaino) y- (uno yogurt); x- (uno xilofono);
i- seguita da vocale (uno iettatore); s- seguita da consonante (uno sceriffo);
I don't know exactly know how to put the 'apostrophe' over the E. I'm just glad it knows what I'm trying to say.
For Mac users: press the flag (language) icon and choose "Show Character Viewer".
well the best way to tell what a word means is to drag your mouse over it and it will repeat the audio of the word and show the translations.
i put "you are a man" because i thought lui/lei/loro were ways of saying "you" to a respected person like usted/es in spanish :l is this not true
It's interesting to think the 'é' in portuguese it's a bit different compared to the italian one. Understandable, but diffent anyway.
We have both è and é in italian. È is the 3rd person of the verb to be, é is used to stress the accent of a word on the last syllable: ex: perché
Is e (with the accent) and e (without the accent) pronounced the same even though it can mean two different things? (is/and)?
un is for male and una for female. in english we have an apple and a mango so in Italic how would one say an apple or a mango. un mela or una mela?
how to identify when to use un and when to use una
you have to know which word is masculine and which is feminine. There is no simple rule to all, you will Handle with practice.
I translate, "He is a man", and the check says Wrong. This happened twice so far today.
Cant find anytging in my ohobe that will give me the e with tge accent on top?
Sometimes when I get a listening exercise I can't hear anything... There is just no sound...
I don't get the difference between 'the' and 'a' here. In every example it is different. How to know the difference?
when I get a question wrong, it would be good to reinforce the correct answer by having to select it to clear the board for the next question. My intuition keeps expecting that I am supposed to anyway.
can someone help me with the accents over the vowels? what are the rules.. grazie
Io = I Tu=You (singular) Lui=He, it(masculine) Lei=She, it(feminine) Noi=We Voi = You (Plural) Loro=They
I got it wrong because I typed "He is a man" and it took me off because the right answer is "He's a man". They are exactly the same thing
Haha, they also have "wants" and "beer" in the sentence construction portion. I think "He is a man wants beer" should also be accepted :D
i thought he is referring to a man so why would it say he is a man? we know "he" is a man
È <<< Take it, save a document with all the characters and accents you don't have in your keyboard, just to future copy&paste.
You will see a bunch of letters with accents right under the section for typing, instead of using the keyboard letter click on the one with the accent.
That is kind--and also kind of funny. I think--considering that the exercises are meant to be done at a brisk pace, and that there's just a mild reproach for "almost getting it right" without the accent--that it's probably acceptable to slide by, as long as the spelling is correct. Odd, though, with keyboards being so sophisticated , , ,
i is the baber bubbin xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxdddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
It's part of word blending that takes place in any language. More listening will develops our ears to get these missing words.
It's weird that duo gave me this task before even introducing me to the word uomo)
Actually for Duo it's the way the lessons are done. There are no vocabulary or grammar lessons per se but there are other means. First for the vocabulary you mouse over the word and get the basic vocabulary, verb conjugation and some grammar tips. For grammar many units have "Tips" on the home page. You may want to use a dictionary. Here's a good on line set of -dictionaries:http://www.lexilogos.com/
Also, see this site with hints and tips and a list of very good Guidelines which you really need.
