Sorry, no accents. In the sentence, I am not sure if you use l'imparfait first, and the second part of the sentence is what? subjunctive or indicative? It sounds strange to me, because in English you would say something like "little did it matter that they bit or not" or maybe "would bite"? (if I translated literally it wouldn't sound right at all: "it didn't matter that IT bites or not" (strange already because the previous sentence talks about several fish). Not quite sure because English is not my first language. But in Spanish we would use the past subjunctive in this sentence, but then in Spanish we have more tenses and we also use a lot more often the subjunctive mode than in French...
I answered the question "Elle a manqué le bus, donc elle doit ________." as aller a pied, but this was scored as incorrect. But the lesson tells me to use this when walking is CONTRASTED WITH ANOTHER MEANS OF TRANSPORT, which it seems to me is exactly the case here!
What am I missing????
I was doing a Kwiziq quiz and got thsi question: "
________ appelle mon père.I call my father.
I thought the answer was je s'appelles, so I put je s'. The correct answer is "j' ". Why is there no reflexive part to it? No me, se, te or anything. I was a little thrown off by that. It would only be "j'appelle" - is that correct?
I was doing a Kwiziq quiz and came across this question: "How could you ask "What is a fougasse?"
One of the answers I selected was: "Quelle est une fougasse ?"
Can someone explain why this isn't correct?
There seems to be a new font used for posts in the forum. The font looks smaller and "sturdier". In my opinion it is harder to read than the original one. Also, it is more difficult to distinguish bold from regular. I don't know what you guys think, but I'm no fan if it.
I put in (for "I wear warm clothes") "Je porte des habits chauds,". It corrected me with "Je m'habille chaudement". However, I saw in the possible answers there was "Je mets des habits chauds". Is the object ("habits ou vêtements) dependent on the verb ("porter ou mettre)?
In the sentence "tout le monde aide avec les corvées"
1. why is the phase singular if means plurel as in everyone
2. why is corvées feminine? I would have thought corvés as it is a mix of people (potentially)
In the sentence "Julien s'occupe du tri des déchets"
1. why “tri” and not “trie”, I couldn’t find a “tri” in any tenses?
This is not a question about the subjunctive mood, but the sentence was an exercise of it, so I ask my question here.
What is the role of "en" in the following sentence: "Bien que je veuille me reposer, je n'EN ai pas le temps !" Does it mean "I don't have the time for it."? Could you also just write "Bien que je veuille me reposer, je n'ai pas le temps !" without the "en"?
Could someone remind why the subjunctive (j'aie) is used in this context. Thanks
How come the "dix" was pronounced like "di"? I thought the "x" was pronounced at the end.
