when do you use 'sopra' and when do you use 'sulla'?
Would 'Metto il sale sulla bistecca' also work?
Google told me that while su is on, sopra is more like over or above.
I think there is no difference, sulla is just su with the definite article.
But I am also curious if there's any difference between sopra and su. Can any Italian explain?
Oh, of course I meant sopra, not sulla! Thanks for noticing!
Is there a "top" of a steak? I wrote " I add salt on the steak" and duo said it is wrong. But to me " on top of the steak" is a weird word, it has a little funny.
Surely "the salt" should also be accepted?
It is now. [2-2-15]
I put salt on the top of the steak - no chance :(
This is ridicules. Nobody would say "I put salt on top of the steak". Why is "i put salt on the steak" wrong????
I think the example was a poor choice for us English speakers.
In Duo's defense, however, they are trying to have us note the distinction between sulla (on) and sopra (on top of).
I think the choice of the sentence was a little awkward for us English speakers. In Duo's defense, however, they just wanted us to understand the difference between sulla (on ) and sopra (on top of).
metto can mean " I put OR " I am putting".
I was counted wrong for not saying I put salt on MY steak. Where did the my come from, and why is that the only correct answer?
And there was no my offered
This module is supposed to be about adverbs.
And I put the meatballs on top of Old Smokie
If sotto alla scrivania is correct in an earlier exercise, why isn't this sopra alla bistecca?
why above the steak is not acceptable ?
There was only one "the" in the list of possible words, and so for me it belonged to the steak, and not the salt. But, no - Duolingo is so pedantic.
Why not let me finish? All too often I am cut off in middle of finishing g sentence
