Should include nouns' gender in list of words
It would very helpful to include the gender of the nouns in the list of words. The nouns' gender is just as important as the noun itself in romance languages like italian. Please make this change. It would help language learning a lot!
Still waiting for it; the nouns showed up in lessons with the gender for about a week or so; then they're gone again. Dang it; and I only looked after making a guess... so much for learning! (sigh) I only wanted it to work on my cases... oh well. Can't figure out the cases, and do it right without knowing gender. Maybe that'll be the for the last round 5 of Duo... maybe.
Here's an example. In Italian, the noun "lo squalo" means "the shark", but is it feminine or masculine? Most nouns use "la" for the feminine definite article "the" or "il" for the masculine definite article "the". These articles show you whether the noun is feminine or masculine and help you with adjective agreement.
Fem. nouns are easy, la or l' article for singular and le for all plural fem. nouns. L' is used for Fem. nouns starting with a vowel. Masc: il for sing. nouns starting with 'normal' consonant, i for plural masc. nouns lo for Sing. nouns starting with S_--eg st or sq, ps, gn, x,y,z. l' is used for nouns starting with a vowel. gli is the plural form of both lo and l' articles. As you can see the hardest to not mix up is the l' forms, such as l' amica (F) and l' esempio
Agreed, but I have to admit not having the gender easily available has done wonders for my learning. Now I can never forget:
Book him Danno
Livre is masculine
The Scarlet Letter
Lettre is feminine
etc, etc, etc
