"Apriamo i nostri edifici alla comunità locale."

Translation:We open our buildings to the local community.

Listening to it, the first word really sounds like "Abbiamo" and not "Apriamo".


It DOES sound like "abbiamo" but on reading the rest of the sentence I realized that perhaps it wouldn't make sense. One of the major problems in DL, despite it having many good learning points, is that the pronunciation of the speaker is so very poor. That, together with sentence fragments, makes for difficulty in translating at times


I GUESSED ' passiamo' . Wrong, of course but at least it made sense to me.


I have translated "alla" with "for the" instead of "to the" and lost a heart. Is it really that wrong?
