Hello everyone 🙂
Today I would like to explain the difference between C’E’ and CI SONO, meaning THERE IS and THERE ARE.
It’s very simple, you’ll see 🙂
Let’s start with easy sentences.
There is a bottle on the table. C’è una bottiglia sul tavolo.
There is a bag on the chair. C’è una borsa sulla sedia.
There is a girl in the classroom. C’è una ragazza nella classe.
As you may have already understood, C’E’ is used when the object is singular.
Let’s see the plural equivalent.
There are two bottles on the table. Ci sono due bottiglie sul tavolo.
There are two bags sulla sedia. Ci sono due borse sulla sedia.
There are two girls in the classroom. Ci sono due ragazze nella classe.
Did you spot the difference? In the last three sentences the object is plural, therefore I used THERE ARE – CI SONO.
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
All the best xx
