"The boys eat bread."
Translation:I ragazzi mangiano il pane.
"Gli" and "i" are both used as the definite article for masculine plural. Use "i" for plural masculine nouns that start with a consonant. "I fratelli" (the brothers) Use "gli" for plural masculine nouns that begin with a vowel "gli amici" (the friends). But that is not all! You also need to use "gli" in front of masculine plural words in 7 other common situations!! : Words beginning with z, s+ another consonant, gn, pn, ps, x or y. Eg: "gli studenti" (the students) "gli pneumatici" (the tyres) "gli yogurt" (the yoghurts)
"gli" for masculine nouns and nouns that start with a vowel. "I" for other masculine nouns. And while we're at it, "le" for feminine plurals
My thoughts exactly! I think it's an error in duolingo, not a misunderstsnding on our part.
my guess is that they're implying (not very well) that it is a singular piece of bread. otherwise, it may say 'the boys eat all of the bread. just a guess.
The sentence is "the boys eat bread", not "the boys eat breads" (as in the boys eat multiple types of bread)
I dont understand what i am doing wrong i have tried it four times with and without th "il and still wrong
why do i need 'I' article if i am stating ragazzi? when other times it tells me i dont..
Bear in mind that if you left out the 'i' in this case you would have: "boys eat bread". That's not exactly the same as the sentence they asked for (which was "the boys eat bread")
