Bonjour! For this part: "You cannot say: Tu ne veux venir pas ce soir.BUT You can say: Tu peux ne pas venir."
Is this only true for this sentence? Can someone elaborate on this further and give another example using ne pas/plus/jamais between verbs (like tu peux ne pas venir). Thank you :)

Why "prêts", and not "prêt"? "On", the subject of the sentence is singular. Should not the adjective also be singular?
«Vieux» might be considered an exception to this rule, as the adjective has 2 masculine singular forms, but the feminine singular form (vieille) always follows the form of «vieil» , regardless of whether followed by a vowel/mute h or a consonant. I don't know of any others - does anyone else?
Could you please explain why "de" was used instead of "des" in the example of this lesson:
Je devrai changer de vêtements.
Thanks for your helpful and amazing website. I have a question, why would you use « langues de prestige » and not « langues de la prestige »?
