"Am I tall?" would be, in Italian, "Sono alto?" or "Sono alta?"
Adjectives follow the number/gender of the name they refer to. :)
I had the same problem so I typed alti/e and it marked me correct but with a typing error.
How do I know if "Am I tall?" also isn't right answer? Io sono, loro sono...
"Am I tall?" would be "Sono alto?"" or "Sono alta?" because adjectives must follow the number/gender.
what makes this a question rather than a statement. the inflection in the voice seems nothing like the inflection we would give in english to indicate a question. there seems to be no rise.
But when it is a "Listen and type in Italian" exercise there is no question mark (yes, I know, no heart dropped, but I feel the same ;)
+1 to arnie.bell.
Duolingo italian voice really needs an improvement because voice inflection is very important in Italian. I think I won't learn Italian if I don't learn the right intonation.
Best regards to all duolingers and thank you very much to Duolingo developers for this great web site :)
Just two questions ago I put sono alti for are they tall and got told it was sono alte so put that for this one and got told it was wrong!
How am I supposed to know which to use??!!
You use "Sono alte" if you refer to 2 or more women and "Sono alti" if you refer to a group of 2 or more, with at least 1 man in the group.
