- Ragazzi = Group of BOYS - (only for We, You guys, They = Noi, Voi, Loro)
Ragazzi = Group of BOYS & GIRLS - (only for We, You guys, They = Noi, Voi, Loro)
Ragazze = Group of GIRLS - (only for We, You guys, They = Noi, Voi, Loro)
XD this was hard cuz ragazzi means boys and raggaze means girls. ragazzi and ragazze sound the same a lil bit. we all just need to get used to saying it :)
This helps me remember which one is which..... Donna=woman ends with an "a" ragazza=girl ends with an "a" Donne=women ends with "e" ragazze=girls ends with an "e" Uomini=man ends with an "i" ragazzi=boys ends with an "i" O= male A=female
I can't hear the diffirence between ragazzi an ragazze at all. How can it be defined by the meaning?
You could always emphasize the ending. (ragazzi is like a hard e) "EE" and (ragazze is like a greaser) "AYE"
Ragazz-EE vs Ragaz-AYE, thats what I would suggest anyway. >>'
Hmm, you could not say "Tu sei ragazze" because the pronoun does not match the substantive in plural! Of course, someone would still understand, but it is grammatically incorrect. :)
Spanish and Italian are the easiest romance languaged to listen.
If you have not experience listening you should try Spanish. Or Esperanto. Then Italian and Romanian, and French and Catalá at last
Grr, this is frustrating. The audio is hard to hear and it's difficult to tell the difference between ragazze and ragazzi. I know one is and "a" sound and the other an "e" sound but it's hard to hear the difference.
I find it impossible to distinguish "e" versus "i" in this recording - despite listening to it slowly several times it sounds like ragazzi not ragazze - well to me anyway :(
The plural of "tu" is "voi", so I believe when using "voi siete" you are directing the sentence to a group of people. When using 'tu sei', you are directing the comment to an individual person.
Thanks soooo much, that helps a lot;) IF you were right. Lol ( because you said " i believe")
Actually it couldn't be because of 'ragazze', which is the plural form for ragazza. Or you say: tu sei ragazza (you are girl) or voi siete ragazze (you are girls)
Comments change order based on up-votes and down-votes. So he may have said it before the other person, even though his comment currently displays below the other.
Ragazze is ONLY for girls. Ragazzi is for boys OR kids in general (including girls).
so like how in French when the verb for when your like 'you are' is avoir or etre or something like that whats the verb in italian
To learn how to speak Italy we have to replay all the levels again and again but its amazing
Ragazza and ragazze, I believe, are referring to younger females. Donna and donne are for older females - women.
No, since voi is plural you. Tu would mean you're talking to/about one person.
Is there a difference between voi and tu? Because they both seem to mean you
Whats the difference between "noi siamo ragazzi" and "noi siete ragazzi"?? Are they same?? If not, what context, which is used??
I don't know if it's just the recording or if i would struggle in person, but ragazzi and ragazze sound the exact same on this to me. I know the difference, but can't hear it here.
Ragazze can't be both girls and kids. some pages have Ragazze as kids, another has Ragazze as kids why?
I find it difficult to hear the word endings. Could they be printed as well as spoken?
I wrote you are girls and yet it was marked incorrect. Does anyone ever read these comments
Strange that it was marked as incorrect. No typo which yielded another existing word? The comments are read by some people but unfortunately not often enough by moderators. I often skip them because there are too many comments, and because the app does not indicate how long ago someone wrote something. There is too often a nagging about 1. the TTS that would speak too quickly, that 2. they do not understand the difference between tu and voi, and 3. that they do not hear the difference between -ze or -zi. Reason enough for me to skip them.
Note the personal pronoun and the conjugation of the verb: Singular: I am = io sono; you are = tu sei; he/she is = lui/lei è. Plural: we are = noi siamo; you are = voi seite; they are = loro sono. "They are girls" = "Loro sono ragazze". "You are girls" = "Voi seite ragazze".
Thanks, When I first started Duolingo an explanation was given at the beginning of the lesson. This is not done anymore and sometimes we must guess at answers. Giving the explanations was a great reference.Don't know why this changed
Yes, something is changed, but there is still explanation at each chapter and since the update also in the app. The new version has a bit childish pictures, but the conjugation of "essere" (to be) is given in "Basics 2".
Can you see the light bulb? I'm using the Android app. It's the same as on the website.
