Why can't the word 'journal' be used to translate 'giornale'? They both come from the same latin root and a newspaper is sometimes called a journal.

Mostly I just hate trying to figure out the difference between li and gli. I'm glad it wasn't in this sentence.

I find that 'è' is said more with a "eh" sound and 'e' sounds more like "ee", but I really figure which one to use depending on context.

I have to listen to the audio (female) several times. It sound like "Queste" rather than "Questo" in both normal & slow speeds. This left me with frustration.
