Hi Mark,

I have checked and it is the word ‘football’ which is not accepted and ‘foot’ is accepted instead. It has now been added.

Chris your answer to Jim regarding the position of ne…plus is correct

Hi Mark,

What is wrong?   To my mind, your sentence seems acceptable and is consistent with the lesson.

However, the verb form in this context is "jouer à"    I'm thinking.

So to retain the verb form as Jouer à (not impeded by "plus") perhaps the following is the correct form in this context.

"Non, Patrice ne joue au football plus."     

Qu'en pense tu?

Jim

Your sentence seems correct, Mark. Maybe you had a typo in your answer?

@Jim: I don't think you can say Patrice ne joue au football plus.
