"The boys write."
Translation:I ragazzi scrivono.
"Gli" is used as the definite article for plural masculine nouns that take "lo" or "l'" as the singular form. Generally, these are masculine nouns that begin with a vowel, a "z" or an "s" followed by a consonant.
l'albergo gli alberghi
lo spuntino gli spuntini
lo zio gli zii

I'm looking for someone to improve my English and I will help him in italian.. I'm italian. those interested write me! Bye
im interested if you want to i can teach you inglesh spanish if you want but i have to learn Italian please exept thank you
Hi, i know English as well... am trying to learn Italian. I can also teach you Spanish.
I thought that "gli" was "the" in the masculine plural form as well, why does this not work?
If I remember right, gli is only applicable when the word after it starts with a vowel
The ending -ono uses the pronoun they. The ending -e used the pronouns she or he.
How do I know when its scrive, scrivete, scrovono? Is there somewhere where I can see what goes with which ?
During your lessons, you should be able to bring up a conjugation chart when you pass your cursor over words like that. It's very helpful!
How would you pronounce this? The pronunciation sounds like "il ragazzi scrivono" but the il is masculine singular, so it would make no sense in conversation.
Wait, my bad, wrong plural. You pronounce "il" with a L sound, and "i" without.
Is this an L or an I? I thought I had it all figured out now I'm more confused. I've got the female down. And the male singular and the male exceptions of l'and gli. But this?
If i didn't speak spanish I would be confused but we have similar rules XD
Hi, am looking for someone to skypetalk, to improve my Italian and i can teach them Spanish. Who is interested?
- " I " for masculine words begining with consonants.
- " Gli " for masculine words begining with a vowel/ "z" or "s" + consonant.
- " Le " for feminine words begining with vowel/consonants.
I have answered this correctly and can not get past this task. What's up with that?
