Could you have said 'le mur en face' instead of 'le mur d'en face'?
Freeform Writing Exercise B2
I understand that Le mur en face --> The wall opposite
and Le mur d'en face --> The opposite wall
What did you guess is the difference?
Does this help?
That seems like a nice explanation, Jim. I wonder how you would describe it grammatically?
Yes! I'm thinking that d'en includes the preposition de which translates to "the wall (from) opposite"
Does that help?
Yes, I think that's probably it. Thanks, Jim.
