In the phrase "J'aime beaucoup ce nouveau bijou" why doesn't beaucoup need a "de"?
Dictation exercise A1
These are two different words entirely -
beaucoup = a lot
beaucoup de = a lot of
So you could say for instance :
J'aime beaucoup avoir beaucoup de monde à la maison = I love ( like a lot ) having a lot of people at home
Hope this helps!
Hi Sarah, literally she's saying i like this new jewelry and not i like a lot of new jewelry, which will not be right for this listening exercise considering she's appreciating the beautiful jewelry.
J'aime beaucoup ton frère. -- I like your brother very much.J'aime faire beaucoup de sport. -- I like to do a lot of sport.
