Translation:My father's generation thinks like you.
La generazione di mio padre pensa come te ==> My father's generation thinks like you
what is the action/verb?
pensa = (he/she/it) thinks, verb
who does the action?
La generazione di mio padre = the generation of my father, subject (singular - it is just 1 generation!)
what/who does the subject action (what does the generation of my father think) ?
come te = like you, direct stressed object, put after a preposition
The generation of my father thinks like you ==> My fathers generation thinks like you
The generation of my father("it" = the dad's gen) thinks like YOU. The clitic is after the verb,so assume normal sentence structure. If "ti" were before pensa YOU would think like them (dad's generation) assume the other structure. Subject, subject (object?) Verb. I think I am starting to get it...until the next question.
Today I responded "The generation of my father think like you." Which is exactly how I, as an English speaker would say it and DL gave me credit for a correct answer but stated I had a typo (they were looking for "thinks" instead of "think"). This category of learning is VERY VERY PAINFUL (as in TOUGH). WE CAN DO IT. DO NOT GIVE UP!!! :)
