I have tried to figure out why some words in the example sentences are in bold and some are underlined, but I don't get it and I can't find it in FAQ or anything.
First let me say that this is the system adopted by Aurélie when she created the lessons. We, teachers, have all developed our own methods based on the average student. So features like highlighting words in bold, underline and colour-coding is used to emphasise various points.
Taking a look at this particular lesson the bold is the subject of the lesson - demonstrative pronouns, celui, celle, ceux, celles and the underlined nouns are the one they have to agree with.
Users don't always appreciate how easy it is for little errors to slip in when creating written and audio material ( and I am witness to this!) for what is a very complicated system . That is why we are always very grateful when these are pointed out and they can then be rectified.
Hope this helps!
I suspect it is for emphasis but can you give us an example of this in a particular lesson and we can make our answer more detailed?
Here are examples from the lesson "Celui, celle, ceux, celles = the one(s) (demonstrative pronouns)" [underline changed to italic]:
Eva aime mes biscuits mais déteste ceux de sa tante. - Celles que je préfère sont les pommes vertes. - Dans ce groupe, le chanteur est celui avec des lunettes. - Regarde ces filles. Celle qui court s'appelle Sophia.
If I understand you, in this particular group the underline indicates the antecedent noun, and the bold is the demonstrative pronoun, right? And they have to agree.
