How I remember lei is she is that there are necklaces that GIRLS like to wear called leis so I think 'She!' I remember boy because lui is pronounced Louie, which is a BOY'S name. Hope I helped!!!
lei makes me think of the word lesbian....Look,I am just trying to help here too.Hopefully no offense is being sensed.
personally, I think of Princess Leia. I use your same trick for boys, though.
I now understand why they say lei is also for the formal you. Sometimes on the market, I can hear "What does she wants, the lady?" that sellers use to be formal! Formal is like talking to people as if the weren't there.
'Giornale' sounds like 'journal-e' So it make it easy to remember that it is for 'newspaper'
You can cheat by clicking on the words. Not that you should cheat but, it works. ^_^
How does one know when 'lei' means 'she' and when it means 'you (formal)'? Aren't the conjugations the same?
They are. On Duolingo, feel free to use the formal you when you see it capitalized (Lei, Suo...)
It is possible to see it both ways elsewhere but here we'd like to make things as clear as possible...especially for new students who don't know about the formal you yet!
I'm confused about legge and leggiamo, because when you look under the conjugations, it shows that legge is for tu, or you. help?
Io leggO, Tu leggI, Lui/Lei/Esso leggE Noi leggIAMO, Voi leggETE, Loro leggONO
I can't say the words correctly. Like, I know the words but I can't pronounce them right. :(
