if you remember, there was a famous italian character back in the 80's, called "Topo Gigio" and it was a cute mouse, dressed up in clothes :)
Topo Gigio, mouse Gigio
There's an italian restaurant in Chicago named topo gigio
Mmm i thought topo gigio was argentinian, my whole life is an entire lie
Native here. Just wanted to add that we also use the word "topo" for "booger". The right word is "caccola" btw. This is relevant.
Thanks for the advice.
un topo! EEEKKKKKK! :)
And here I was hoping for a boy or a girl
Topolino means little mouse. It's a famous old model Italian car, and also the Italian name for Mickey Mouse.
it does not sound like TOPO
Funny, in Spanish "topo" means "mole". Also, in México "mole" is food.
In Italian a mole is "una talpa" ;)
In Puerto Rico topo means "mole"
In Spanish"topo" is a gopher which is also a rodent
First time I see the word, and not translated...
Hover over it (or touch on mobile) to get a translation.
Why is "È" also explained with "(you) are" but it is not right to answer "you are a mouse"?
The verb è you are talking about its a formal way to say "You are" and it's used when you are talking to a upperclass/older person in a polite way not for animals!
I actually didn't know I guessed that. I haven't been doing Italian, because I was doing Spanish, and I think that Italian is harder than Spanish.
There is a mistake in the grading for this.
è un toppo ? .____.
So is topo a mouse or a rat? They are two different creatures. The last question said it was a rat but this description says it's a mouse. Which is it?
Topo gigio :)
I put he is a mouse, how is that wrong?
One of these words.. No friends in related languages
There is bug here. I compute "it is a mouse" twice and it won't accept it
I heard "È unto"
It is not recognising a correct translation
I have put exactly the same but yet you say i have put the wrong word
How do you type accents pn a Android phone? Duolingo keeps telling me I'm off but I just don' t know how to type them yet.
Hold the letter you want to accent
I wrote it's instead of it is, could you please add it to correct answers? Thank you
Try not to confuse è and é. È means it is, but é means Is it. Pay attention to symbols above letters.
I wrote the same word????
Topo Gigio was an Italian series. After it became a success, Latin American countries like Peru and Mexico came up with their own version. But it's originally Italian.
Did you have the cartoon series "Top Cat"? Could have been confusing!
All I can hear is 'È un popo'. No choice but to skip all audio questions when this comes up.
The pronunciation is wrong
La pronuncia in italiano di "topo" è sbagliata
I had "e un popo" as an accepted answer? It sounded like "popo" at first but after I listened to it closely it definitely said "topo". I reported that it should not be accepted.
The first time I heard this audio I thought he said '' è un popo '', and italian is my first language XD.
