Hi! Could anyone elaborate on why "à part" is incorrect au lieu que "séparément" as well as "poursuivre" for "continuer"? Thanks in advance!
Freeform Writing Exercise A1
1. Mais mes parents jouent séparément = but my parents play separately
à part can mean somewhere else ( i.e. in another room perhaps), here it means the parents don't play together
2. Si ça continue = If this carries on
you cannot use 'poursuivre' here as it means to follow/to chase, as in to pursue something.
Hope this helps!
séparément -- separately.à part -- apartpoursuivre -- pursue
I find that these three words have a very clear English translation.
