Can I write "Je les tiens précieusement" instead?
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
Hi Nguyen Tan,
Possibly, according to context.
Garder --> Take care of (look after)
Tenir --> Hold on to (grasp)
The context suggests to me that "garder" is most appropriate in the sense of - "look after"
rather than simply "hold on to"
Hope this helps.
