"In the first half of the week" the acceptable translation is Dans (or durant or pendant) la première moitié though above it says "Durant". However, "In the second half of the week", "Dans" and "moitié are both marked as incorrect with "moitié" is replaced by "partie". Could you please explain the differences as I don't understand them.
I am not an astronomer but I believe the correct term for describing earth's movement around the sun is not "rotation" but "revolution." I think it would be correct to say,
"...en fait, la révolution de la Terre autour du Soleil dure quelques heures de plus chaque année."
The very first example given of when to use "c'est" is:
"C'est une jolie robe."
This clearly refers to a specific dress.
But then we are told that the answer to "Tu aimes mon pull?" should be "Oui, il est très beau."
Why is the rule for a specifc dress different than the rule for a specific sweater? Is it that "il/elle est" should be used when answering a question about a specific thing but that "c'est" can be used otherwise?
Another who has fallen foul of the "Nous nous sommes brossé les cheveux" question. Please add the exception to the lesson.
Over the last few days I have powered through over all the A0 topics in order to get them out of the way and get to study A1 or better lessons,yet for some reason it feels like I am on a loop right now, where all the lessons on my study plan are A0 ones even though all of them are 100%'d already, I even got the award for achieving a 100% completion on a level. Is there any way to get Kwiziq to stop giving me these lessons and get it to give me A1 ones ?
There was no audio for this part. I clicked on "play" and it changed to "pause" as expected, but there was no sound.
Le chiffre de 0,274 % n'est pas correct ! La probabilité d'être né un jour donné au cours d'une année normale est de 1/365 = 0,273 %. Or, le 29 février ne se produit que tous les quatre ans. Le calcul correct est donc 1/(365 + 365 + 365 + 366) = 0,068 %.
Bonjour! Je m'appelle Khyatee, mais je me fais appeler Kat.
I believe it's right but I'm not sure how to specify that Kat is a nickname/preferred name.
I love you
Are these two options interchangeable ??
I was marked wrong for using it in one of your questiona
