I teach Spanish and French. In the preterit Spanish, SABER (their equivalent of savoir) carries the idea of someone finding out a fact or knowing it for a short time. Is this true in French in the passé composé?
In other words, does "j'ai su son nom" carry the idea "I found out his name"? Or even "I knew his name; but forgot it"?
C’est comme ça que j’ai su son nom = that’s how I knew his name
Je l’ai su par hasard = I found out about it by chance
Here is a link on savoir.
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
You corrected me wrong. My answer was correct
Can you give a bit more detail please? Which kwiz are you referring to? Which answer was marked wrong? Which question? It would make it easier to answer and see where and what is wrong. ;-)
