"The men drink."
Translation:Gli uomini bevono.
in front of a vocal such as in the word "uomo", the article is "lo" and not "il". Plural of "lo" is "gli", plural of "il" is "i".
This is true for words starting with vocals but not only, search for the rules but I believe those to be: -S followed by consonant. "lo sporco" -P followed by n or s. "gli pneumatici" -Gn. "lo gnocco" -X. -Y. -Z. "lo zio"
L'uomo is singular and gli uomini is plural. So l'uomini wouldn't technically be correct according to the conjugation rules of this app
the exact sound doesn't exist in english but the closest thing is "yee" ...but much more spread for the consonant sound
I read that in Rome and the surrounding area "yee" is a common pronunciation. I also listened to an Italian woman and her little nephew on a YouTube Italian class teaching how to pronounce "gli". They pronounced it "yee".
I dont get this because i cant remember all of the different words for it. Is there an easy way to remember them?
yikes im confused on which word to use regarding drinking but i'll get the hang of it soon enough
What is the difference between "bevono" and "bevete" ? The choices were both correct when the subject was "the women" but now it's wrong when the subject is "the men" ??
Yes I get that but as I mentioned in my comment, the program counted me wrong when I answered only the sentence with "bevete" (and not both "bevete" and "bevono") in a QCM where "the women" were the subject... @.@ (the women = they, aren't they?)
I don't remember oops ! But it would mean "you women, you are dinking" or something like that ?
Presente io bevo tu bevi lui, lei, Lei beve noi beviamo voi bevete loro, Loro bevono
