Bonjour Michelle !
Yes, of course in French we actually have verbs to refer to specific meals as well : dîner, déjeuner, petit-déjeuner
Marie a petit-déjeuné avec Sam.Je dîne chez mes parents aujourd'hui.Où est-ce que tu vas déjeuner ?
I was simply pointing out that you couldn't use avoir in the context of meals in French (unlike in English), and that in those cases, you needed prendre instead :)
Also, you can say Je mange mon repas, albeit a bit redundant ;)
Bonne journée !
What about Je dîner? I have heard that before. It this a particularity of the language, like in English we can say "I dine" but not "I breakfast" or "I meal"?
Also, Je mange mon repas? Yes or no?
