A small question. Tiers-Monde or tiers-monde ?
Should Tiers-Monde really be capitalised ?
I've looked at 3 dictionaries and it is spelt in lower case in all of them. If I was taking an exam , would either answer be acceptable ?
Any general rules about this ?
Thanks , Paul.
c’est le résultat de l’entreprise qui affecté ... the most heavily and I wrote la plus lourdement since l thought the company was the most heavily affected. L’entreprise is feminine hence my use of la vs le. Why was this wrong? Thanks for your help!
There are two examples of synonyms being used in the transcript, instead of the exact words articulated in the video:
1) À quoi ça sert de "recycler" ses déchets? À quoi ça sert de "trier" ses déchets?
2) Sans doute, mais c'est "quand" même très utile. Sans doute, mais c'est "tout" même très utile.
turc --> turque (pas le "c")
grec --> grecque (avec le "c")
I thought that la peau would be an acceptable response rather than ma peau because it’s clear Marc is referring to his skin so there’s no need to use the personal pronoun?
Ron, I know this is very late in the game, but I had the same question. You asked for the phrase in question so here it is below.

Why the word 'baldaquin' is in its plural form?
I looked up in the dictionary, but I could only find the phrase 'un lit à baldaquin', without an 's'.
I believe that's the subjunctive in the final sentence.
If so, I would like to understand why it's being employed here with espérer.
I always understood that this would not use the subjunctive in the affirmative (indicative), but perhaps the imperative changes this somehow?
No doubt I'm missing something here...
In the full passage answer text, 'je vais prendre un coca' is given. In the test, it suggests one uses Le Futur Proche, as here, but then marked it as not the best answer and provided the best answer in the Future Tense ie 'Je prendrais'. Much confusion!
