  1.  Ciao Jane and Massimo,

    Grazie for another great episode. I need help understanding the supplementary statement…”Hai scritto a tuo zio? Si, gli ho scritto. Isn’t gli plural, but the question is singular “your uncle.”

    Grazie,
    Canice

  2. I love the way you explain the pronouns on this episode and the one before – I’ve struggled forever with pronouns – now it’s clear — love it!!!

  3. Canice, “gli” is actually singular but also used in place of the plural “loro”. Think to the sentence as “ho scritto a lui” — “a lui = gli”. See the PDF transcript and all the extra examples provided on the Learning Center.
