The first sentence we should've been taught would be "Please speak slowly"
Every time I hear sentences like this I scream "Puoi parlare lentamente, per favore?" Can you speak slowly, please?
italians won't speak slowly you have to get used to pick up the fast version
:) Took the words from my mouth
When you hover over "rimangono" one of the suggestions is "they are up the spout." Can't wait to throw that one into a conversation!
Why isn't the answer "The animals are in the zoo" acceptable here? Rimanere can mean "to stay", "to linger" - which is consistent with "are" in English.
Seems to me that "remain/rimangono" has a long term meaning, while "are" is just their actual location.
But "remain" and "stay in" carry the extra meaning that they, well, stay there, that they are always there. "The animals are in the zoo" does not give the same sense of constancy or permanence.
"The animals stay in the zoo" would sound more natural to me (opposed to "remain")
I think someone took a chipmunk in their purse and the manager said, "I'm sorry, the animals must remain in the zoo."
The slow version is incomprehensible at the end.
except la tigre, which we prendiamo :-)
Can anyone explain "they are up the spout"???
It means to be expecting a baby without intending it
Is anybody else having problems with Duoingo accepting this sentence when speaking or is it just me?
Does anyone know if "the animals live in the zoo" would be accepted as correct? Without further context, "the animals remain in the zoo" sounds very unnatural and implies a short-term stay.
In the fast version it sounds like 'dimangono' and in the slow version 'limangono' - in neither can I hear 'rimangono'! Awful sound quality.
nello in / inside the zoowhat is the difference
What is a zoowhat?
stay / remain same difference
The animals are remaining in the zoo was marked wrong.
They actually wanted to go uptown shopping, but the weather is really bad. ;-)
Why does this guy say DOH instead of zoo?
The masculinen spoken version seems a lot (lot) faster than the feminine one attached to this discussion.
I am typing in three times the correct answer only to have it rejected on each occasion. I have therfore lost the complete lesson. Very disappointed.
