What is the difference in the pronunciation of "giornale" and "giornale"? Its hard to tell from the computer.
Giornal-EE and giornal-EH is how I pronounce the plural and singular versions of the word.
To me, it sounded like "il giornale.". The article isn't always clear in these recordings.
Here's another one where in the regular spoken phrase, the "i" is completely undetectable. I'm listening for it, and it's just not there. Am i going crazy? Or deaf?
Neither which is why I try to remember to always listen to the slow version while I am learning. Once I get better hopefully I'll know when it should be included.
Why is "He reads THE newspapers" incorrect. Isnt "the" necessary when "i" is used in "i giornali"?
'i giornali' is plural, 'the newspapers', and 'il giornale' is singular, 'the newspaper'.
How does it tell when you make a 'spelling mistake' and when it marks you entirely incorrect?
I assume it's just seeing how many letters you've missed. If you missed more than one, it's probably going to count you wrong.
You use le for feminine plural words.
So la ragazza becomes le ragazze
For plural mascaline words you use i.
So il ragazzo becomes i ragazzi
Thanks. What's the difference between i and gli? So far I've understood they're both for masculine plural
