I wrote "the cakes" and was marked wrong. They said the correct answer was "the tarts"! Here it says the cakes. Did anyone else come across this? Will report.
This was really difficult to hear even slowly :( i only got "eats the cakes"
Gli is reserved for nouns that begin with vowels. Gli uomini, gli elefanti, gli insetti, etc. It's the plural form of "the" for nouns beginning in vowels.
Actually, gli is also used with words beginning with "z" or "s+consonant". More details here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/italian/language_notes/il.html
Gli is a plural og lo or l' and it use when it is start in s followed by a consanant or it start in z.
Can a second "le torte" be replaced with "loro"? Or is there some sort of a different word used to replace things so that there'd be no repetition?
