I'm still a little confused as to when you use 'di', 'a', or 'in' when it comes to doing something in a month...
Sandra Bruck makes a useful description of these here: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/2897975/Use-of-di-a-in-and-nel-for-time-in-Italian-When-do-you-use-which
Because it's a masculine noun beginning with z. Other masculine nouns that use lo instead of il are those beginning with s + consonant. The plural for these words is 'Gli' instead of 'i'.
The in italian: • for masculine nouns: - l' when noun starts with a vowel - il when noun starts with most of consonants - lo when it starts with z, ps, pn, gn, x, y and s, but after s must be anothen consonant - in plural lo and l' turns into gli, il turns into i • for masculine nouns: - starting with vowel - l' - starting with consonant - la -in plurals - le
Zoo is masculine and starts with "z", so it's "lo zoo". Which is femine and masculine you have to learn, but nouns ending with o/e are masculine, and with a/e femine (not aways).
So, I typed "the zoo is open in May", can someone explain why this is incorrect, please?
I typed in "The zoo is open in May" and it was corrected to "The zoo is opening in May". Can anyone explain why open is not accepted in this sentence, please
what's the difference between 'in maggio' and 'a maggio' and why is 'a' sometimes right and 'in' sometimes right and both sometimes wrong
