Hi Jiamu,

In the case of verbs ending in -cer like, lancer, placer, menacer, the cedilla will be added before the vowels -a and -o to get the required -ss sound.   If not there it is a hard K sound,

Nous plaçons (present) but nous placions ( imperfect)

il lançait ( imperfect) but nous lancerons ( future)

Hope this helps!

Greetings, I am inserting the ç in exerçons but it does not seem to be captured when I submit. I have done this three times (in case it was my mistake but i received the same result in each case). Thank you

Hi Peter,

Is this a new problem or are you having problems typing accents and the like?
