Quick question!

Hi,  I use this app a lot (every day) for French grammar. I was doing the excersise and in a little bit confused on when to use a ‘!’ and ‘?’ in the phrase that’s being read to me. How do I know when to use them because if it’s a robot, they don’t talk with a high pitched voice when there's an exclamation mark and have a confused tone when there’s a question mark in the sentence. I’m sorry if this is confusing, I’m not the best writer, but if you hopefully understand what I’m trying to say, please kindly explain the answer to my question. Thank you

Bonjour Carly,

Punctuation can be a little tricky to get right. I would highly recommend that you concentrate on the content of the exercise first and foremost. In an everyday life scenario, you will most likely understand (by the context, the body language and the tone of voice) if there's an exclamation mark or a question mark.

Take a look here: Punctuation in ecriture

However, I will pass on your comment to the French team for further discussion.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
