Shouldn't this be pronounced "Gee-a-cho"? I heared it as "Gatto" as well.

Yes, most people love eating ice cream (=gelato), but don't like frozen water (=ghiaccio).
But what if he died swallowing the cube and it's his ghost telling you the story?
If this reads as "I do not eat ice," how you do you say "I am not eating the ice" ?
so "i eat ice" and "im eating ice" would be the same sentence in italian but "i dont eat ice" and "im not eating ice" are different?
It's not the same sentence, the conjugation of the verb mangiare changes. You just remove the non and conjugate the verb properly, whether in present progressive perfect or present simple.
I think it's just ice in general. Take for example the Rhapsody of Fire song: "Danza di fuoco e ghiaccio". Dance of fire and ice is a sensible translation. Dance of fire and ice-cubes, on the other hand, would seem a little odd.
It's any type of frozen water. So any type of ice in english minus the ice cream.
Would it be wrong to say in Italian "Io non mangio ghiaccio" ? Is it necessary to have the article (il) there? And if so, why is that?
I can't really give an explanation why this is but the article seems to be used most of the time. There are some exceptions where the article is wrong, but they are a minority.
it is used most of the time, except at the start of most sentences, then it can be skipped.
hey i'm returning to this program after a while is non the word for no or don't or is this a special case where n is attached to the end of non
Ciao ragazzi! How to say in italian: "Please with ice" and "Please without ice"?
In Italian, there is the article (il) before ghiaccio, but In English, zero article before ice. Why?
It would not accept my pronunciation twice, so for the third time I simply played back Duolingo's robot voice and it also was not accepted... FAIL.
"I do not eat the ice" sounds wrong to me, but it won't take "I did not eat the ice". How do you indicate past or present tense?
"I did not eat the ice." You say that when (for example) your brother ate it and your mother asks it. But this is "I don't eat ice" generally. Because (for example) you don't like it :p (sorry for my bad english grammar)
My husband does this, a very annoying habit as it ends up in a visit to the dentist.
Correct-ish... Ghiaccio is the basic ice. So ice from ice cubes, the ice on a frozen lake. Whereas gelato is as you said the ice cream ice only.
Isn't it "Io non mangio il gelato." because ghiaccio is ice (like frozen lake and stuff) but i don't know. Can someone explain this to me?
i fell like this word has to do with Latin...and if i'm correct it's where we get the word glacier
Why is sometimes only "ice" and another time "ice cream"? It is misleading for translation.
I'd like to know why it's not a definite refusal. "Won't". How do you reject something?
I said I did not eat the ice. I got it wrong because it is I do not eat the ice. How do I know the past tense and present tense here?
do | did | done ...well I guess you know those. I am just starting with the present perfect in Italian so I cannot realy explain how it is made. But just assume that you are are either in simple present or present continous until you made it to present perfect.
Of what I understood is that the Italians have one tense for both.
I LOVE ICE! i eat ice every day. Italians are weird if they do not like ice.
Do you seriously not know the difference between ice and ice cream?
'I did not eat the ice' is what I said. How does it differ to 'I do not eat the ice' I don't know the indicator of the difference if there is one
How do you even eat ice? Aren't you really just grinding it back to water until it breaks your teeth?
I don't eat ice much. I heard about a guy eating ice on a building roof one time...
The translation of ghiaccio should be "ice cube" so that it is more clear that gelato isn't meant?
Ghiaccio is just ice. ice cube would be too specific. Just as it is in english: When you talk of frozen water you are talking of ice, if you are talking of creamy, sweet delicious frozen milk, fruits an stuff that you eat, then you talk of ice cream not just of ice
