de is easy, give me the la

it's  funny how all french courses keep saying "oh but you forgot that in french there are male and female nouns"

NO I HAVEN'T. i just cannot possibly remember who is le and who is la, after one month of learning language. and yet, not a single app/website that i've used so far seems to understand that.

"use de when something is uncountable". bro, i'm here because i had no idea if beer is du or de la, and i wouldn't be here if, for example, the quiz used water instead of beer.

they all seem so disconnected from the audience they are trying to teach...
