Freeform Writing Exercise A1
It depends on what they are wearing -
Mario wears red dungarees
The word 'dungarees' is singular in French:
un bleu de travail rouge
une salopette rouge
Luigi wears green clothes
which in French is :
des habits verts
des vêtements verts
the plural 'des' is necessary here.
Hope this helps!
This question is a little broad so can you give some specific usage that you find confusing?
Pourquoi-avez vous utiliser 'porte une' pour Mario mais 'porte des' pour Luigi? J'ai pensé que c'est toujours porter de?
Nous avons des moustaches énormes.
Whereas in previous exercise, "Elle a les cheveux longs et blonds"
So why "des moustaches" and "les cheveux"
I could just say, as is often the case -
"C'est l'exception qui confirm la règle! "
but I think in the case of moustaches , it is something you can shave off so you will use 'des', in the case of hair, it is what you are born with.
You also say
Elle a les yeux bleus = She has blue eyes
But you would also say -
Elle a de très beaux yeux bleus = She has beautiful blue eyes
Elle a des beaux cheveux = She has beautiful hair
Hope this helps?
