"We drink juice."
Translation:Noi beviamo il succo.
Why is there the need for "il"? Can't it just be "Noi beviamo succo"? The translation isn't "We drink the juice."
You're close, the rule of thumb is s+consonant or z. Succo starts as s+vowel.
Sorry! I'm sure you're way better now :) I also realized somebody answered your question with a separate post down. Oh well, it'll serve as an explanation for the future Italian learners here!
No. You use "lo" before a masculine word beginning with s + another consonant. Lo scultore = the sculptor. And you use "lo" before z.
Because "beviamo il succo" is also correct; you could omit the subject pronoun.
I was under the impression that one says for example "il sugo di pomodoro". Is it correct?
Is it the case in Italian, as in Spanish, that usually the pronoun is dropped unless it is for emphasis? For example, is it more normal to say "beviamo il succo" rather than "noi beviamo il succo?" Thanks :-)
And I lost a heart with "Beviamo il succo". Shouldn't they both be right with our without the Noi at the beginning
I wrot 2form & those were wrong .i am comfuse can you explain which form is correct 1_noi beviamo il succo .2_beviamo il succo.which sentens means we drink juice .thanks for poining
I had the same question as Ariaflame about using 'lo' instead of 'il' and so thanks FrenchCrazy for explaining it.
Because that would be 'We drink a juice". While the 'the' is frequently left out when translating from Italian to English (Noi beviamo il succo - We drink juice/we drink the juice) because we don't use the 'the' so much. If an 'a' is in there un succo, then it would translate into English as We drink a juice. Whereas We drink juice we put in the the that Italian usually puts before nouns. Noi beviamo il succo.
i wrote the exact same translation ''noi beviamo il succo'' why the hell is that wrong?
i am kinda new here so i thought that i had written it wrong that's why i didn't report it.
Lol so which one is the correct? I pick noi beviamo il succo is wrong. But beviamo il succo is also wrong.
Bella, Both are correct. If you were working a multiple choice question you have to check ALL correct answers. Maybe you only checked one of them?
I got it wrong the first time too. But from what I figured, for this part you're supposed to select both options in order to get it right. Which is weird but meh. Cuz technically both are right.
Iam confused ,because when I choose the right answer,said that my first answer was the good one ,and when choose the other one said Iam gronw again?
