Hi Manpreet Kaur,

A French person just wouldn't say that.

Bonne Continuation!

You could say, J'ai profité de chaque minute.

Can you pls explain... why can’t s’amuser be used here when it means to enjoy

Hi Manpreet Kaur,

You cannot always translate an English expression into literal French and this is the case here -

You would use the verb, s'amuser :

Nous nous sommes bien amusés We had a great time /We really enjoyed ourselves 

you just cannot say-

s'amuser chaque minute
