as title says
Why is it "vous vous êtes forcément posé la question" and not "vous vous êtes forcément posés la question" since the verb is reflexive and in the compound past tense? Is it because the writer intends the "vous" as signaling a singular subject?
In this statement: If there is a pronoun before the infinitive, ne pas precedes it.
Which pronoun are we talking about here? Direct or Indirect? The examples above exhibit both, so I'm a bit confused.
Could someone comment on the function of “au” in “très au sérieux”? It is optional? In which other circumstances might we see a similar thing?
In English if there are two children then he or she is the elder not the eldest.
Eldest is used when there are three or more.
Hi, I'm a bit confused if we can use "bon" for a person?
It's from this sentence [Il est très bon] when the "il" refers to Tom Cruise .
Appreciate your help, thanks!
Hia - in the lessons notes, it says: "If subjects, verbs, and objects confuse you watch the cartoon video explaining them. They're easier than they sound."
Can you advise where the video is to watch? Maybe I am missing the obvious ;-)
I listened to that first sentence time and time again and I really cannot hear "Sarah", really sounds like "Ça va".
My question is about putting "Marie caressait son chat" into the La Voix Passive. I have read Skylar's comment and the answers to her question. I agree with Ron, that "Le chat de Marie..." resolves the ambiguity of whose cat it is. So, I wrote: "Le chat de Marie etait caressait par elle" which was marked wrong. Could someone explain why this is wrong?
Je vous remercie beaucoup !
In one of the A2 tests, I see « Il faut toujours regarder devant soi. » and « Il faut toujours essayer soi-même avant de juger. » When do you use soi vs soi-même? I keep getting docked for choosing soi-même in the first sentence.
