Probably has something to do with that knife in the boot we saw a few lessons ago...
or the repeating sentence regarding alcohol " io bevo alcol" couldn't be better to say for example " io bevo vino, or birra" instead? it is kind of mind games. i like DL a lot the way it includes all aspects of learning a foreign language, but sometimes the choice of words in sentences are creepy.
yes I've been on it about a week and so much morbidity already! Though an opera of DL sentences would be great: 'the children do not write on the shark' etc...
There should be an additional lesson youcan pay lingots for titles: "The fun in funeral"
Since the infinitive "morire" means to die, why is the "a" is placed before morire. Can someone explain please
I found this under the lesson course:
Most verbs need a preposition before the infinitive:
a is mainly used for subordinates that are somewhat "after" the main sentence: as such the list includes verbs of movement (e.g. andare, venire), preparation (e.g. provare, prendere, mettersi), and hesitation (e.g. esitare, indugiare, tardare). If the main verb has an object, "a" can't be used to refer to the same subject.
Thank you for reminding us to look at the Tips and Notes for the lesson, though I must say these ones left me rather befuddled!
Madre di Dio taaaaaaaaanti lingue, sei un essere umano affatto? Grande rispetto.
Yes, much as I appreciate it, Duolingo uses pretty dark example sentences. I use other language learning platforms, but none of them have the weird negative undertone that this one does at times...Molto strano. I remember it being a lot more humorous when I started :/
does this mean the same in Italian as "he was the first to die" does in English?
"Sono troppo giovane per morire", "Voglio vivere" (actual phrases from this same lesson)... something's going on here
OMG the obsession with death ! I am hoping not to be grappling with that in a second language LOL
really??? why would this be a relative statement to learn ... where they watching the Godfather ??!!
Where do they come up with these sentences! There are a zillion other things he could be the first to do! He could be the first to arrive and that at least wouldn't be such a downer.
Well, he was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand and a bullet in his gullet...
