In the lesson it mentions 'the irregular root prenn-' but I think it is in fact regular. The present 3rd person indicative plural is Ils prennent and that leads to prenn- as the subjunctive stem. Isn't it only irregular in the 1st and 2nd person plural where the prenn- becomes pren- as in prenions and preniez?
In the audio file for the sentence "Nous mourons tous un jour" in this lesson, the word "tous" has a silent s (IPA [tu]). Why is this? I understood that when "tous" is used as an indefinite pronoun to refer to a group of people like this, the s should be pronounced (IPA [tus]). Have I misunderstood something here? I would appreciate any help on this :)
I knew it must be Je, but it sounded like Tu.

A million years ago when I was at school doing French dictees, the teacher would read out the punctuation. Would it be possible to do that, too? I don't feel like docking points off my score because I put a full stop rather than an exclamation mark!
Is complète an acceptable alternative to 'finit' ?
My understanding is that for a general comment, 'C'est' is used when followed by any determiner.
