Oh no, there’s a monster under this little boy’s bed! Listen to his conversation with his father, then scroll down for the bilingual reader, where you can click any French phrase for the English translation and related grammar lessons.

Correction: We mistakenly referred to the child as a girl in the newsletter, sorry about that.

In the above conversation about the monster under the bed, why does the dad say "Bonne nuit mon cheri" when he's addressing a female (his daughter)?
Shouldn't he not say 'Bonne nuit, ma cherie?

Bonjour Phil !

Indeed, this was a mistake in the Newsletter : the child in this story is a boy, hence "mon chéri" :)

Bonne journée !
