Couldnt hear what it was saying? Idk
How is this sentence pronounced? Since l'elefante and è both end with an "eh" sound, are the words pronounced separately (as in: "l'elefante è") or do both words share the "eh" sound ( as in l'elefantè)
It's pronounced with a pause between l'elefante and è.
In this recording there's little pause, maybe it's needs some practice to hear it
In English it is more natural to say "Elephants are animals" but I don't know how to say that in Italian. (Yet).
Is this the same in spanish?
Its not quite the same. In spanish it would be, "El elefante es un animal".
