Man! the pronunciation and spelling of this word are hard.
At least it's pronounced the way it's spelled.
But I misspell it cause as I was learning durch, "ch" sound is always hard for me to get in italian. And in Portuguese (my native language) it's also different. :( result: I don't pronounce it properly most of the times.
Dont feel to bad I fail alot too
I believe Forvo can help you with pronunciation, I think.
I thought "mestolo" was spoon
mestolo = ladle
Cucchiaio is a very difficult word to remember, and it just means : spoon ... Seriously... I thought it meant : knife... :p
Knife è coltello
What is the difference between cucchiaio and mestolo?
From what I've seen, a mestolo is a ladle, while a cucchiaio is a spoon. Hope it helps :)
Why not "ho" since both boy and spoon are masculin? thx
"Ho" refers to "io" so it would say, I have. But when saying the boy or the girl have, it is "ha"
Verbs in this language do not reflect gender.
The question I had right before this told me mestolo was the word for spoon when I couldn't remember how to spell cucchiaio.
Google translate shows mestolo to mean ladle and cucchiaio to mean tablespoon.
Scusa, my response was called incorrect when in fact it was the correct response; I typed Il ragazzo ha un cucchiaio. Per que?
Thank you for including what your response was.
It looks like one of Duolingo's infamous glitches. Next time this happens, flag it and select "My answer should have been accepted."
Is it a cooking spoon, like a wooden spoon or would it also refer to a spoon for eating?
You made it even more difficult now lol
Does anyone have an easy hint to remember cucchiaio is the word for spoon? I can't come up with any appropriate association to remember it. It's a tough one!
Is it just me or the new voices the characters have are kinda bad? Like, for me "il" sounded like "EEEeeeehghgh" or someone throwing up.
cuc-chia-io soo hard...
