Would someone be able to explain the need for the ne in that sentence? Or link to the lesson that explains it? I'm stumped.
(it was translated as "Mathilde put the car away before it rained.")
the "ne" in the sentence carries no negative meaning. It is the so-called "ne-explétif", a serparate grammar topic, which is required by the "avant que". Kwiziq has several chapters on it, you can look for it in the library section.
