I know the following wording may be a bit unusual but can you use this phrasing in a sentence as follows:
I do not much want to speak to them. Would it be "je ne veux pas grand chose leur parler ? OR Je ne veux pas leur parler grand-chose.
Something I've been noticing throughout the lessons is that there does not seem to be a rise in intonation at the end of the questions in the French pronunciation (see example above in: "Vous ne devriez pas etre a l'ecole"). Instead, the intonation sounds more like a statement. Do the French not have an uplift in intonation at the end of spoken questions?
This particular question and explanation frustrate me a bit because I've seen it so often in other "teaching" apps. It seems to me, perhaps incorrectly, that the lessons should be geared toward the student in NOT assuming that the student knows or will stop to look up the many nuances of what type of shopping one is doing, especially since it often will not be indicated. Since there are two such distinct intents for these "going shopping" phrases, it seems to me that neither "faire les courses" nor "faire les magasins" should be marked incorrect. "The sales are on" does not exclude non-personal-goods locations. In this instance, perhaps a hint needs to be included.
