No idea. What was your question?

Sorry Chris, I've lost this now but as I remember it the answer to 'Let's be courageous' is given as 'Soyons courageux'. My Collins-Robert dictionary gives 'Avoir du courage' as 'to have courage'. As with 'raison' and 'peur' shouldn't courage take avoir?

Regards

Hi John.

There are two expressions, 'avoir du courage'  (to have courage ) or 'être courageux' (to be brave/courageous) .

So it will depend which you choose to use :

"Ayons du courage! " or

"Soyons courageux! "

 

Hope this helps!
