The answer in the quiz was ce jour-là and I was marked wrong for putting cette journée-là. In the lesson it states one should use an rather than année in these expressions. Is it the same rule for jour/journée? If so it might be helpful to add it to the lesson examples. Also is there a general lesson on when to use jour or journée? Thank you.
The one exception to the rule is an when you use 'année' instead of 'an'.
cette année-là = that year
and it is because if you try to say it, it sounds like sept ans which can be confusing
But, jour, soir, matin, do follow the same rule -
This is the Kwiziq lesson to explain when to use jour or journée in normal circumstances:
Using an/année, matin/matinée, jour/journée, soir/soirée : time unit vs duration
Hope this helps!
