Hi, for “but I used to play it all the time when I was a teenager” we are given the answer “mais j'y jouais tout le temps lorsque j'étais adolescente”.
I had put “mais je le jouais…”. What’s a good way to interpret why it should be “y” and not “le”?
Freeform Writing Exercise B2
The usage is: jouer à qqc (and NOT jouer qqc). "Jouer" takes an indirect object introduced by à, and hence replaced by "y".
I read this as "but I used to play THERE (or at it, jouer à) all the time when I was teenage."
Do you not agree?
