Another problem I have here is with the explanations in the lesson. It says that when talking about SOMETHING SPECIFIC, you should use elle/il. But then there's this example: Qui est Sylvie ? - C'est ma sœur.
I would think that here we are talking about a very specific Sylvie, and not just some Sylvie. Then why do we say c'est instead of elle?
This question relates to:French lesson "C'est vs il/elle est: Saying it is"
Hi Arndis, if you look again at the lesson you'll see it's divided into 2 parts.
1. c'est in sentences it/he/she is + a/the/my... + [thing/people]
