Translation:Good night

December 30, 2012



'Buona notte' should also be correct or am I wrong?

December 30, 2012


Yes..the space is optional just like you can say stamattina or questa mattina.

October 7, 2013


I saw "Buona notte" separated in a different language-learning page similar to this.

May 4, 2013


yes its same as any other languages thats two seperate words!!??.. cant you get the hang of this language het or what??.. if you dont, maybe yiu should start all over from the vet go??!!..

March 9, 2018


idk... Duolingo will say it's correct just it is going to say you have a extra space but it's also correct.

December 3, 2017


Buona notte should be correct

Good night in English is written as 2 separate words

July 5, 2015

Oh boy you should be his teacher bere!!??.. real bright i fividual!!??..

Can you stop being sarcastic and ignorant? That's 2 mean comments you've left, and nobody appreciates it.

January 6, 2019


I wrote this as two words and didn't lose a heart, Duolingo just pointed out that I had missed a space. I think both varieties should be accepted?

August 16, 2013


I don't know enough about Italian to know the answer to whether both varieties should be accepted; I do think that duoLingo's recommending English "Goodnight" (i.e. as a single word) as the translation seems a bit misguided. https://jasondrexler.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/say-good-night-to-goodnight/

January 29, 2015


yes both are the sa e nd acceltable also!!.. same as goodnight in english is acceptable also??!!.. great work??!!. you shohld try umraunian or russian or polish then fhatll tbrow you all for two loops for sure!!??..

como saber se é good evening, ou good night?

October 6, 2013


Good evening=buonasera ; good night=buonanotte

October 6, 2013


Buonasera - good evening when you greet someone Buona serata - have a good evening when you goodbye Buongiorno - good morning/day (greeting) Buona giornata -good morning/day (goodbye) Buona notte - just good night as goodbye after 11 pm..

work on your english...

January 24, 2019


Is it something you say when you leave or when you meet somebody late?

October 11, 2015


When you meet somebody late you can say: ciao, salve, buonasera, never buonanotte
When you or someone else leaves, you can say buonanotte, but only if you or the other person goes to bed (even if you have to go home first).

if somebody goes away saying "I leave you, I have to go to work", you cannot say him/her buonanotte (even if it's two o'clock at night)
you can say: ciao, salve, buonasera, buona nottata, buon lavoro, ...

May 14, 2018


"notte" and "night" both have kinda similar etymology, I guess...

January 12, 2015


quite right , anileng

August 1, 2015


"good night" and "goodnight" can you tell me why first phrase is wrong?

June 11, 2015


I entirely agree . Good night is better in English English than goodnight , Mistake surely

June 13, 2015


i wrote Goog night and Duo told me that it's wrong :(

June 14, 2015


It probably won't accept "goog"

July 10, 2015


Oh come on! I wrote them separately like i did above The problem is that why i can't separate them.

July 15, 2015


You're correct. I thought i would just point out the typo.

July 15, 2015


Really xelanotlaw? :D

April 23, 2016


I wrote the same thing for some reason :/

February 1, 2017


Sks me too :]

January 6, 2019


Yeah, "good night" is two words in English. Please fix! :)

June 29, 2017


not only good night is from translation from italian and night- night is a correct solution

January 10, 2019


that's like Buena noche in Spanish.

April 1, 2014



October 8, 2015


So it's like buonasera it's good evening, and buonanotte it's good night?

January 21, 2015



January 10, 2019


I said "rerere" on the mic and it's correct! Hahahahahaha

May 25, 2015


Obviously choose the one with the capital letter

September 18, 2015


Is this good for early and late night greeting?

March 21, 2016


yes, but only before going to bed.
After an evening at the pub, if you know (or you think) that your friend will go home to sleep, you can say him/her "buonanotte" (otherwise: ciao, ci vediamo, buona serata/nottata, ...)

There was no ''night''

January 6, 2018


Notte=night. Buon=good. Put them together ans you get good night

February 19, 2018


I clicked it twice and it said it 3 times and marked it wrong

February 27, 2019


Sound isn't working

March 5, 2019


Whenever I've heard this word spoken, it has more of a "ch" sound to the "tt". Is that right?

February 13, 2013


Nope, it's a "tt" sound in italian

May 9, 2014


I think that's Spanish... Buena noche

March 21, 2013


It's in plural in Spanish: buenas noches (and never "buenasnoches")

April 2, 2013


It is possible to say Buena noche in a polite way e.g que (usted) tenga una buena noche. I am native speaker.

August 31, 2014


No u aren't

April 25, 2016


You are tottaly right xabifer.

April 25, 2016


but is pronounced more often like buenasnoches than buenas noches xD.

April 10, 2013


Yes but lets get back to italian.

i think goodnight "Buonanotte" should not be spelled like this: "bouna notte"

November 12, 2015


Means Goodnight

November 24, 2015


good night/goodnight=buonanotte

December 14, 2015


I don't like long words. they're hard to spell

December 30, 2015


I say bunanotte witch is how my famliy told me to prononce it but that didnt work so i had to say bunonotte

January 20, 2016


Some of the answers are really good. I wish there was a way to copy them so i could paste in my notes.

May 14, 2016


From answers i mean comments in this area.

May 14, 2016


Buonanotte wasnt even an oprion here...

May 23, 2016


I'm using my phone and it only gave me the option for evening...

July 10, 2016


they taught this as "goodnight, bye!" but it's no longer accepted. Well done duolingo...

October 7, 2016



October 13, 2016


Goodnight was not one of the options

November 22, 2016


I am pretty sure that would be correct.

December 11, 2016


buona notte.

January 5, 2017


Goodnight is written together

are you nuts you should be expelled from the program instead of cursing it or you can log out yourself!

January 10, 2019


I texed "G'night" and Duo said "You're wrong"..

June 4, 2018


I put good night and it said it was wrong, I think this should be changed, or am I actually not correct by separating it?

June 27, 2018


Is it just me, or is this very hard to spell correctly?

August 18, 2018


Good evening

October 22, 2018


Saying ive spelt it wrong but is exactly how they spell it!!

February 26, 2019


Italian is almost like Portuguese Bom Noite , almost the same sounds .

February 21, 2016


In Portuguese, the correct form is "boa noite", because noite is feminine gender

June 15, 2016


It fid not give night in the choice of words you could choose -only evening -then marked it wrong!
