I also get confused with variances. Now I translate literally and get by with that. If there is a THE in the sentence I oput it in but if not , I don't , and I seem to be OK
It is a little bit different in Italian than English. In Italian, most nouns have some variation of "the" in front of them; obviously, it is not that way in English. Therefore, when you translate the Italian sentences into English, you do not have to write "the" in front of them unless it is necessary for the sentence.
I put 'acqua' rather than 'l'acqua' and it said the translation was 'drinks water' anyway? Almost finished with 3 hearts :'(
If you're taking dictation, then you have to type exactly what the recording says, not even a slight variation with the same meaning. If you're doing multiple choice, then you have to mark both of them. If you're translating from English, then "Il leone beve acqua." should be accepted; report it if it's not.
Thats what happened to me, if the translation does not use 'the' why do I need 'l' before aqua?
i also put "acqua" and it gave it as incorrect. I don't like inconsistencies...
Android doesnt have the stupid hearts system if youre concerned about not being able to use the app.
I find it confusing when l'acqua and acqua are required. Prior comments suggest that l'acqua may not be correct.
but it's not optional. sometimes i get error messages for doing l'acqua or acqua
Well the article would be necessary in a sentence like "The lion drinks THE water." But in the Italian they use articles a lot more often than we do in English. Therefore, I think if there's a "the" in the English, it should be in the Italian, but if there's not a "the" in the English, then you can choose whether to put it in the Italian or not.
I tiped this ( il leone beve ľacqua) Whats the problem with this.? Please tell me!
Not really. In Italian, most nouns have some variation of "the" before them. When you translate this sentence into English, you don't have to put "the" before it, so it can be "The lion drinks water" instead of "The lion drinks THE water".
