wouldn't it be 'There are no lessons today"?

"There aren't lessons today"

acceptable?

Do you need the "any"?

I wrote that, too. Is it because of the 'ci'? But if the sentence was 'Ci sono lezioni oggi' the translation would be 'There are classes today'. No 'any'. Arggggh!!!

All the translations are wrong, so how can we possibly choose the right one? The literal translation is "There are no lessons today".

I wrote "there are not lessons today" and was marked wrong....confusing.
