How about the plural version?
Is it "Io mangio fagioli."?
Either "Mangio fagioli" or "Mangio dei fagioli".
Grazie mille, Rae!
Is it a soft or a hard "g?" Having a hard time determining from audio.
gi is pronounced like "George", not like "gong".
Io mangio is also i am eating?
How does one say, I eat beans, or I am eating beans?
Mangio dei fagioli.
What does the dei mean?
Idiomatically, "some". Literally, "of+the".
Grazie! Voglio mangiare dei fagioli, non solo uno. Ho fame!
What is pronounciation??
Fodolo or fogolo
what's the difference between io and lo for I??
IO is "I". It begins with the same letter as "I". It is cognate with the Spanish "yo".
LO is "the" or "it/him".
Try as I might, after several attempts, I cannot hear 'un' or 'il' fagiolo. I can hear it on slow mode, but trying to hear it as it happens. So I wrote 'il' ... but was incorrect. What context suggests that it should be 'un'??
"Un" means "a". "Il" means "the". This sentence says "a bean" so you would use "un".
Yes, but you don't have that clue with listening exercises. Everyone gets the sentence presented to them differently.
