Why is ‘Connait’ used instead of ’savoir’ in that instance?

Hi Claire, 

Je ne connais pas le nom des plantes 

Please take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson where you will find your answer -

Connaître vs savoir = to know something vs to know how to do

Bonne Continuation!

What's the grammar...

Of this one "pour pouvoir te faire"?

CécileKwiziq team memberCorrect answer

Hi Negin,

The format is a letter from Magalie to Nicolas.

She is telling him : 

Je vais copier la recette pour pouvoir te faire goûter = I am going to copy the recipe so that you can try it [ Lit - to be able for me to make you taste it ]

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Negin,

Pour pouvoir te faire (goûter).  The text suggests that a recipe is to be sent "in order for you to be able to taste it"

Tip.   If you click on the exercise text, it provides a clue as to what the text means at that point.

Hope this helps.

Jim

Why does "tu me manques beaucoup" mean "I miss you very much" ?

Why does "tu me manques beaucoup" mean "I miss you very much" ?   Why does it not mean "You miss me very much" ?

Short answer - because that's the way it is ! 

More useful answer - look ahead at the linked lessons, but don't be surprised if it is a struggle to get your head around ! (You will need to succeed with this in order to manage the use of the verb « plaire » as well)

Manquer (à) = To miss someone/something emotionally

Manquer (de) + thing = To miss / lack something

Why does "tu me manques beaucoup" mean "I miss you very much" ?

Why does "tu me manques beaucoup" mean "I miss you very much" ?   Why does it not mean "You miss me very much" ?
