This is indeed how it is supposed to sound. When speaking, Italians do not pronounce the "i" in "il" and the article is reduced to "l". It's a natural phonomenon that happens in all languages :-)
I'm italian, and that you have said isn't real. We always pronounce "i" in "il".
I don't know what all italians always do but I can hear the "i" in "il" it is faint but it is there. Maybe some just need to develop an ear for it.
You are right, until is checked in slow mode, then you can heard "e" il cibo
The pronounce is like "ch" of the teacher. Pardon for my English, I am Brasilian.
Way too difficult to hear the E at the beginning! You can't distinguish without more of a break, especially when just learning
Pretty sure that's why the slow mode is there -- the normal mode is how it's actually spoken in Italian.
Exactly I thought maybe I was the only who has "she food" as a correction to my answer which was "the food" and which think is more appropriate;)
"Oh my god, it's the food!" (There is an ! at the end of the sentence in the practice, check it out, lol)
Did not hear the verb in it! I would have sworn she said il cibo. And you know something? I curse a lot while I'm trying to do these things. I get that frustrated at trying to understand what she is saying sometimes. Ah well...I give up.
"That is food!" seems like a sentence I probs wont be throwing around alot in Italy. (or anywhere)
It told me it was supposed to say "she's food" but I really don't think that's quite right...
I translated as "the food", it corrected me saying "she's food". Not sure if that's something that works in Italian, but it certainly doesn't in English!
Why 'she'? The pronoun is not specified so it could be 'he', 'she' or 'it'. Chances are that 'it' is the correct one when a gender is not explicitly specified.
I believe as in spanish food is feminine also in italian, therefore we can say "La comida" eventhough we don't say "ella comida" thus it's clearly a mistake when translate "she is food" instead of it's food
The only thing I can think of, especially with an exclamation point, is that it is someone coming up with the answer as to why everybody is running to the bathroom
nah this dumb AF, where does is say she you excuse for a lawsuit against the condom industry
Is the "è" pronoumced differently compared to plain "e"? I'd be grateful for an answer.
