why does it have to be faire with aikido? why is joue a l'aikido wrong?
Carol, ‘jouer à’ is akin to ‘play’ in English. We don’t generally say ‘play a/at (aikido/martial arts)’ in English either. Just the way it is in both languages in this case. Just as in English, the way these expressions are generally used is somewhat idiomatic and best learnt by exposure to usage. There is a comment in the lesson on similar situations.
