"We enter the refrigerators."

Translation:Entriamo nei frigoriferi.

The amount of times I've had to say this in Italian, I'd be lost without Duolingo ;)

Il frigo

What is the plural of frigo?

April 19, 2015


The plural is "frigo" too

April 20, 2015


"Frigo" is the same of "frigorifero", the plural is "frigoriferi"

Thanks :)

March 22, 2013


Grazie mille!

April 30, 2013


Is there a shortened version of "frigorifero", like we have the word "fridge" in English?

March 21, 2013


Of course. It's (il) frigo.

Under "Correct answers" is also included, at least in my case, "Entriamo i frigoriferi". If anyone else reads it: that's definitely wrong. Subject + entrare + object isn't grammatically acceptable (even though some few italians actually use it). I am also quite confused by the fact someone would enter in a fridge :/

Actually if you are in a restaurant or similar the area where the cold stuff is kept could be referred to as a refrigerator, just a very big one and is walk in. It's important to make sure that you can't get locked in it though.

I agree, apparently they are referring to a "walk in fridge" here (we wouldn't enter an actual fridge, right? ;) ), but in my opinion that's not correct English. Normally the word "cold room" or "meatlocker" would be used for such a refrigerator, so I'd say the sentence in this form is a bit misleading in a language class.

Although I misspelled the verb, I did type in "i frigoferi" but DL insisted that the correct answer was "nei frigoferi". So I'm a bit confused. If the verb means "enter" and the sentence to be translated just says "enter the" (and not "enter into the"), why would you write "nei"?

Because the convention in italian is to enter into rooms, etc. not just to enter

Unless... you insert or fit a fridge into a truck, let's say. (R)entrer, in French, can also mean to insert or to fit. With a direct object. But I am not sure it is the same in Italian.

January 28, 2015


For that specific case you would commonly use ''inseriamo''=we insert, or simply ''mettiamo''=we put.

Why can't I say "Noi entriamo NEGLI frigoriferi?... What's the difference between nei and negli? (thanks!)

February 14, 2014


'gli' is the plural of the masculine singular article 'lo'. 'Lo' is used if the word begins with -gn, ps, pn, s+consonant, x, y, or z. (Examples: lo zio, lo studio, lo zaino, gli gnocchi, lo pneumatico etc.)

February 26, 2014


you must also use the article "gli" with masculine plural nouns beginning with a vowel
gli alberi = the trees
gli uomini = the men

June 23, 2018


That makes perfect sense now. Thanks!

March 5, 2014


such a weird sentence.

December 10, 2016


Are there cases in Italian when "entrare" does not require "in" or another preposition? Thanks.

Fraternity hazing?

In Australian bottle shops (l'alcol) there are huge fridges for keeping la birra molto fredo and you can walk into them to collect a slab (carton) of beer to buy at the checkout. Also good for white wine.

February 6, 2018


I think we should use "negli" when we're talking about plural masculine form of the word which starts with either a vowel letter or if it starts with "s"+another consonant letter. In all other ways of masculine plural form we should use "nei". That's how I understand it. But I can mistake, I'm not a native speaker.

They must be some big refrigerators.....

December 24, 2016


my office is like a giant fridge so I could say entro nel frigo ogni giorno lol

March 8, 2018


I nostri gatti provano ad entrare nel nostro frigorifero di grandezza normale quasi ogni giorno!

November 22, 2018


And why would you entrr a fridge anyway? Unless you're a talking cat - ah!

October 7, 2017


Sure, it's freaking hot!!

October 9, 2015


Is this stupid sentence intended as a joke, or just to get us to switch off and do something else?

June 28, 2014


There are such things as walk in refrigerators. You may never need to use this sentence, but I suspect you can break it down and replace refrigerator with something more common like van, or house.

October 15, 2014


Such unusual sentences like this and grammar constructions which they contain are remembered for a long time!! And, as Athmel and someone else said above, there are big industrial refrigerators you can really enter inside!:)

October 15, 2014


Harold Wonham stavo pensando la stessa cosa, pericolosoooo , lol

December 21, 2016


Why 'nei' instead of 'nel'?

October 12, 2017


In + i = nei, in + il = nel

So basically because it's plural, multiple refrigerators.

October 12, 2017


Sometimes i have to wonder about these sentences... I mean what are the odds???

October 13, 2018


So chill

December 19, 2018


I give up. The hints are wrong so often that I am starting to believe that it is done on purpose.

March 29, 2019


Why does not it provide the sentence: "We enter in the refrigerators"? I thought it meant something like we enter the refrigerators to the warehouse which is more reasonable. I did not think of putting "nei" in the Italian translation because of the absence of "in" in the English sentence.

Not sure where I would comment, but my place in the Ruby League is not advancing no matter how lessons I complete. Stuck at 308

..into a race? Is this the royal "we"? It seems odd to enter more than one refrigerator at once...or is that not the odd part of this sentence?

May 15, 2019


and if you enter two refridgerators in the house then it is entriamo i frigoriferi. Too answer giuliaff, unless it's a walk-in refridgerated room, I dont believe too many people walk into their fridges. However when moving you could enter 2 fridges
