Please explain the use of "chez" in the example: Qu'est-ce qui te plaît chez Anna ? with the translation "What do you like about Anna?" I'm confused about the use of 'chez.' Merci!
With respect to her character. (What pleases you or you like about her character/personality?)
Hope this helps.
Chez has multiple meanings and usages, not unusual for prepositions - have a look at the link to wordreference. This specific use is covered in the definitions.
Thanks to both! Of course there are several meanings! Why am I surprised!! Thanks again.
And what if you actually wanted to ask 'What do you like about Anna's place?', can it be asked in the same way?
The "correct answer" here should be Maarten's.
We already know how "chez Anna" it's being translated in this context - that's in the lesson. It's precisely what precipitated the query.
The question is why "chez Anna" which usually refers to "Anna's house" and Maarten's answer clarifies this.
