At first I thought he said "L'ape è un animale". Then I listened to it in slow motion and found out it was actually "La balena è un animale"...
...which is one "whale" of a difference.
Why is this in my lesson on clothes?
When is it è and not é?
thank you...been on my computer for way too long today.
I think you meant to reply to me, but you missed.
If it's because "animale" is masculine, then you need to remember that only adjectives change to agree with their nouns. Nouns never change to agree with other nouns.
