My understanding is that in French "menu" is the word for the chalkboard list of daily specials. And "carte" is the paper list of all the items that the restaurant can serve. I used "à la carte" in this exercise. I guess Kwiziq is not making that distinction in A1. Or, I am under a false impression.
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
Hi Mary Anne,
Menu and carte are very similar, 'le menu', being the list of what you can have, and 'la carte' the piece of paper or cardboard it is written on.
However, 'à la carte' is wrong as it is means a dish you pick from a different carte from the set menu and where items are priced individually.
Hope this helps!
Would it be then also correct to say "sur votre carte"?
