Same here -_- I've already had an Italian course and I agree that the pronunciation with the robot woman isn't very clear.
The verb is already meaning 1st person singular so you don't need to say IO at the beginning but it is also ok if you use it. The B is pronunced as B of banana not V and about the C, in Italian it sounds like in Key or like in Chiwawa depending by the following vocals: with A, O and U it sounds like K while with E and I sounds like CH; exception is when there is an H between the C and the 2 vocals E/I... in this case it sounds again like a K.
Can someone tell me if cibo is pronounced like civo? Is this always the case? So, the V like the B?
No, V and B are different sounds; the B is pronounced like a voiced P (i.e. with both lips), while V is pronounced like a voiced F (i.e. with the lower lip and and the upper teeth).
I will always be confused with the spelling of words in different languages, and how different they sound when spoken aloud. like 'cibo' sounds like 'chibo'. i don't know, it just confuses me. I'm getting used to it though.
The sound doesn't be clear for you. Cuz ur languages are not latin languages. Im Portuguese and this sound is too much clear for me. All words that program says!
I missed the "I" in this sentence - so the pronoun can be put in or not?
Why can't one use lo before Mangio il cibo?
