Can you explain when the verb s'installer can be used? Is it just an alternative for s'asseoir or does it have more meanings?
I am not sure if the correction below is right. Could you please explain?Il est ________.It's ten twenty-three.(HINT: Use the "12-hour" clock)dix heures vingt-troisdix heures vingt-trois du matin(this was my answer)
I find it inconsistent that at one point the text says 'en alternance avec de tulipes pourpres' while later it says 'l'éclat des soucis orange'.
Is there a reason why the second phrase isn't 'l'éclat de soucis orange' - or would that have been equally acceptable?

Which one is correct? Can't we use indefinite articles with the days of the week ?
What is the difference between j'irai prendre and je prendrai?
in the text, you start by saying 'ils leur ont préparé un cadeau....' Singular.
but at the end, you say '....de si jolis cadeaux'. It is hard to know if it is plural or not by just listening, especially when we started with just the one.
I agree that this is a challenging lesson, and agree it’s a lot of information. Maybe a summary table (column 1 having each form of attendre, column 2 giving that form’s meaning/ translation, column 3 giving the sense, whether positive or negative) would help for quick review. I feel that by the time I get to the bottom of the list, I’ve forgotten the nuance of the definitions further up! A quick reference may help. Thanks for considering.
As a test question immediately after the lesson it is easy. But most North American and indeed many British Commonwealth countries would consider 'receiving the degree' what happens at the official ceremony. Obtain/earn would be less ambiguous outside the time frame of lesson/test. Should it be changed form receiver to 'obtain or earn'?
