In the 2 question quiz given at the end of the lesson a question asks "what does Qu'est-ce que c'est mean?" the literal translation is 'What is it that it is' which is given in the lesson.
It should be more clear on what the question is asking for, the meaning or the translation.
Agreed. But when in doubt, the literal translation is only for you to be used as a mnemonic, a memory aid. It's never asked about in a test.
I completely agree with the original poster. My biggest complaint with this site has ALWAYS been that over and over again the literal translations are given as options in the quiz, and they are always considered wrong. That is ridiculous. It is LITERALLY the correct answer by definition. If you don't want people to chose that option, then don't include it!!!
