What's the difference between "in" and "a" here, as both seem to be accepted.

'in' is used in front of months that start with a vowel like ottobre. Use 'A' or ' Di' in front of the others.

I've also wondered the same thing. Sometimes, when I put one or the other on certain sentences, it's incorrect.

What's the rule for NOT adding an article?? Usually we're told in Italilan to use the il, la, lo... before nouns. Even when a personal pronoun gets stuck in the middle, we still have to use an article. ex: "la mia mama"...OK, so I learned that. Now, I see some sentences... like above "frutta" with No article in front of it, and that's OK. It's not said as: la frutta.... I'd like to know When to use and When Not to use.

When is in "a" and when is it "ad" and when is it "in"? I am soooo confused!

I think 'a' and 'in' are synonyms depending on context. Both seem to work well here. 'ad' is just 'a' before a word beginning with a vowel I think. 'a' can be 'at, to, in' but 'in' is just in. http://italian.about.com/od/grammar/a/italian-prepositions.htm

why is mangiamo frutta a iuglio not accepted?

April 27, 2013


Months are not capitalized in Italian, so what you see is actually the letter that between 'k' and 'm' :)

Damn use of san serif fonts where you can't tell the difference between I and l.

Thanks! I thought it had to do with the syntax.

Is A luglio mangiamo di frutta not accepted?

Frutti was a typo according to duolingo. Is there a real plural for frutta, like pesci?
