"Metto ghiaccio nei bicchieri."

Translation:I put ice in the glasses.

Really hard to understand

I agree. I listened in the slow mode three timesand still couldn't hear "ghiaccio."

Could someone explain why it is "nei" versus "nelli" or something of that sort? Thank you!

There is no nelli . . . as far as I understand in + il = nel in + lo = nello in + la = nella in + 'l = nell' in + i = nei in + gli = negli in + le = nelle

Thank you!

I wrote: I put the ice in the glasses. It marked me wrong. This site is good but sometimes its a little pathetic as well.

Well, it doesn't say "il ghiaccio". It just says "ghiaccio".

March 29, 2014


Yes, but so many times it has omitted the il in italian or the in english and it has been fine. The site just kind of makes up when it matters and when it doesn't. I think it would also be fruitful to point it out but it shouldn't be a full blown mistake.

Does anyone have a fun way to remember how to spell "bicchieri" it gets me every single time...

June 17, 2014


Well assuming you know the word but not the exact spelling: bi (because that's the prefix for two) cc (two c because, well bi=two, and a glass has two ends) h ( because one end is a hole) ieri (no idea for that part, sorry)

thank you:)

Can we use nel instead ?

September 25, 2014


Nel = in + il and nei = in + i

Nel bicchiere = in the glass, nei bicchieri = in the glasses
