WordReference supports feus as correct and feux as an synonym/substitute for feu, so I'm a bit confused. Your expertise would be much appreciated here. Merci d'avance pour l'aide !
When can we say "j'habite en..." instead?
This is from the lesson- c’est is used when making statements or giving opinions about something in general or nonspecific. The adjective that follows is always masculine. (Sorry, it’s in my notes so not sure if direct quote but probably is.)
Question: Is it not only always masculine but singular as well?
Eg. Tu aimes les montagnes? = You like mountains? (In general)
Would it be - Oui, c’est magnifique!
This question is not specifically in the above lessons:
My understanding is you use il/elle est or ils/elles sont with unmodified religions, nationalities or professions. Is this correct?
Il est professeur. Elles sont catholiques.
BUT if the noun is modified, then use c’est or ce sont plus an article/determiner. Is this correct?
C’est un professeur d’histoire. Ce sont mes amies françaises.
Thank you for your help!
On the quiz, I was given Je ________ un jouet! and put voudrais in the blank. It was marked incorrect and veux given as the correct answer. I though you could use either. Why was voudrais wrong?
Why l'accordéon touchait son menton not be used in this case please explain
What is the difference between article definis and article indefinis. Why can't we use les or des for a plural, or any of these?
Why does the final sentence, "Plutôt fuir que d'être pris la main dans le sac," utilize être in "d'être pris" vs avoir like in "d'avoir pris." ???
Hello! This is an example given for a partitive article:
Tu veux des pommes de terre?
Do you want some potatoes?
My question: is “des” both a plural of the partitive articles (used with uncountable or mass nouns) AND a plural of the indefinite article (used with countable nouns)? In the example above, potatoes are countable so they would take the definite or indefinite articles. But the sentence is used as an example of the partitive.
It’s probably a stupid or obvious question but I’m confused!
It’s the first time I’ve come across “virevolter” - what a lovely verb!
By the way, the “petit à petit” audio is incorrect (it includes “slash peu à peu” in it).
