exactly. I did the girlfriend writes to the boy and it didn't work. it said that girlfriend was the same thing if you mouse over the word.
It depends on the article of the noun. Al for a + il. Alla for a + la. Ai for a + i. Alle for a + le. Allo for a + lo. Agli for a + gli.
I don't understand this one bit. Can anyone elaborate, please? I'm saving it for future reference, once the light bulb comes on.
does "al" mean 'to the' and 'of the' ? if yes : what is the deference between "dello" and "al" ?
I got the answer right with 'the girl writes to the boy ' but the word boy got underlined - what does this mean please?
I have a hard time pronouncing the L in "al" next to the R in "ragazzo". Do I blend them together or should I try to pronounce each distinct consonant?
I'm told 'that I used the wrong word" in my answer above? My answer is correct! Duolingo makes these mistakes all the time. I am Italian and I speak Italian. I do this course because I only know French, German, Spanish and English speakers..

I don't know what I'm doing wrong with my pronounciation of "ragazzi/o/a". Every audio activity with that word, I have never answered correctly. Please help?
I speak that word like "Ragatsa/o/i", but with a stronger "R", like "Rragatsa/o/i". I think that's the correct pronounciation. You also try it? MAYBE it's only an audio mistake, or something like that. Anyway, if you have practice, you can do it.
I'm sure this will go away with practice but my problem is that I can understand certain things in italian but its like I'm a really old computer trying to run halo 4. It takes me longer than normal to process it and by then the italians are already on the next subject but I have only just finished translating what they said two minutes ago in my head.

I wrote "the girl writes to the boy" and it marked it as wrong. The correction is "the child writes to the boy". It makes zero sense. Since when "ragazza" means child? And by the same logic, isn't "ragazzo" also a child???
How am i wrong? "The girl writes to the boy". The app : "the kid writes to the kid? Ragazzo=kid? Ragazza=kid?
I have written "the girl writes to boy". How could I know that there should be "the" in the sentence?
Anyone else as soon as you hit the mic it says you're correct and just moves on?
"The girl writes to the boy." For me this the right sentence. Not "The girl writes the boy" (!?) as put for Duolingo.
I keep writing in past tense... like “the girl wrote to the boy" and it always counts it wrong!
It is not in past tense but present tense. So it should be "writes". Otherwise the sentence would have been "la ragazza ha scritto al ragazzo".
