The English noun “people” has many similar translations in Italian:
- gente (people, folk, race)
- popolo (people, populace, crowd)
- persone (simply the plural of persona (person), but also translates literally to “people”)
Fidanzato can mean “fiance” or “boyfriend”, which could prove awkward in the wrong situation. Amichetto may also be used for “boyfirend/girlfriend”, but is not included by Duolingo in this lesson.
Somewhat less confusing, but still worth mentioning is that bambino can mean either “baby” or “child”. The alternative fanciullo (child) is sometimes used for the latter.
Lastly, the Italian rapporto is translated to “relationship” for the purpose of this particular lesson. However, it also translates to “report” in the educational sense.
