Italian nouns ending in E: masculine or feminine?

Italian nouns ending in E: masculine or feminine?

I have already talked about noun genders in a previous lesson and I mentioned that Italian nouns ending in E can be either masculine or feminine. Usually, we tend to learn them as we go and memorize whether they are masculine or feminine. But here you can find a trick to make your life easier.

The tip is super simple:


look at the ending of the words.


I know what you’re thinking now: “all of these words end in E, so they all end in the same way.”


True, but if you focus better on each ending, you will see that some of these words have something in common:


they end in the same way, and this can help you determine whether they are masculine or feminine.


So, press play to watch the video lesson and don’t forget to play the game at the end.







Do you remember the words in the video lesson? Test yourself by putting them in the right group. 🙂


Are they masculine or feminine? How do you know it?


Remember that the more you play, the more you will remember. 🙂
