why is (make us do our homework)translated as "faire faire"
Freeform Writing Exercise B1
Seems from the English script that it is because it is 1. “in order to make us” - afin de/pour nous faire - and the action that is being caused to be done is 2. “ do our homework” - faire nos devoirs. Hence it becomes ‘afin de/pour nous faire faire nos devoirs’ as a causative statement. Faire + [infinitive] = to have something done in French (Causative)
