i put 'they are' for sono, and they counted it wrong, though i think it was ambiguous.
Thanks, both "I am" and "They are" work now!
Yes! I noticed.
Can't I use "Sono nel ristorante" in this case? I got confused because I thought that the word "al" meant "to the"
"A" can mean "to" or "at". Prepositions don't map one-to-one.
al = at the;
nel = in the
And what's the difference between being "at" somewhere and being "in" somewhere?
I can't speak for other languages, but in English, "I'm at the restaurant" can include sitting in your car in the parking lot, while "I'm in the restaurant" can only mean you're inside the actual building.
i'd like to know how to tell the difference.
You should be able to tell the difference in the context but in this case either answer should be accepted
i never knew al ment at the
