How do you tell if you are supposed to use nello or nel?
Nello is a compound of in+lo, and nel of in+il, so apply the rules you use to decide between il and lo :)
Hi Formica, to me is still a bit confused when to use "il" and when to use "lo", can you clear this doubt, please?!?
As an article, lo is used before some combinations of letters (no matter what word they belong to), the most notable ones being z+vowel, s+consonant, i+vowel, gn, pn and ps.
Grazie Formica, ha aiutato molto
That's the problem... When to use which?
should this not be 'on the plate' rather than 'IN' the plate?
Why can't I say la cuoca?
The cook could be a female and then "La cuoca" would be correct. Why does the lesson require that the cook be masculine?
