Capital letters

Any reason why la Psychologie has a capital 'P' but la littérature has a lower case 'l'?

Bonjour G,

Thank you for pointing this out! It has now been amended and both answers (with and without the capital letter) are now accepted as correct.

You can use a capital letter for such subjects/disciplines depending on what you are referring to: school subject -> lower case / University course/the science of... -> capital letter.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Hi G,

Just copied the primary text at the head of the lesson.

."ça y est", "prendre une décision", "la psychologie", "un choix", "hésiter", "encore", "avoir une passion", "la littérature", "se dépêcher", "les inscriptions"

I don't see any capitalised  words so am unclear about your query?

Thanks Céline!

Jim, in the body of the text "la littérature" with a lower case 'l' was marked as incorrect.
