Mangiamo. Mangiano. WE eat. THEY eat. This is easy to mix up.

Um...I think it might be a little hard for all of us to share one apple. :)

It doesn't have to be only one apple. 'We eat an apple' can indicate that every person eats one.

Hmm, I think this is a rather complex topic. In my opinion, that sounds incorrect, but that's of course just an opinion. I would only say "We eat apples." or "Each of us eats an apple".

am i the only one who can't differentiate from LA and UNA when she speaks?

I have the same problem. The way she's reading it, I have to slow it down a few times just to make sure she's actually saying "una"

Hehe, why did they put "We eat an man"? as one of the multiple choices? :P It's obviously wrong, since "an" is used before words beginning in vowels. But whatevs.

Can this sentence also mean "Let's eat an apple" ?? Thank you in advance ^^
