Sorry to add to an already long thread, but I have a feeling that when using "on" as informal "we" (rather than impersonal "one") I’ve seen "nous" used as the stress pronoun, not "soi". Is that right?
Please help! I'm confused! Why is "la fois dernière" correct in this question, when there is a clause after the phrase "last time"? Thanks 😊
________ , Henri est venu me voir.Last time, Henri came to see me.(HINT: une fois = one time)La fois dernière (marked as correct) Dernière fois Fois dernière Une dernière fois

When last time is followed by a clause (last time I saw you), you can only use la dernière fois, never la fois dernière.
Tu étais encore avec Stéphane la fois dernière.You were still with Stéphane last time.
Tu étais encore avec Stéphane la dernière fois.You were still with Stéphane last time.
Tu étais encore avec Stéphane la dernière fois que je t'ai vue.You were still with Stéphane last time I saw you.
In this exercise, we could use faire face à qqch and affronter to express face something, and what about envisager?
Could we use this verb to express the same meaning?
A post further down says "soit..soit is used when followed by anything other than a verb". I’ve just done a quiz elsewhere where the answer they wanted was "Soit tu mets du déodorant, soit je te quitte"! Is this a usage that exists but isn’t good French? If so, what’s a better way to express it? I can’t imagine "soit que" is very common and "que" + subjunctive verb seems to be a yes/no situation (eg que tu le mettes ou pas) rather than offering two alternative verbs.

so you really just add an -e to the end of a adjective to make it feminine? is there any exceptions?
I thought plural countries were aux so should it be 'aux Pays De Galles' instead of 'au Pays De Galles' or does Pays De Galles count as singular since it means Wales.
For in countries/cities, I always thought it was either "à" (usually for cities, except for a small number of cases e.g. au Canada, au Japon), and "en" for countries.
E.g. J'habite à Melbourne.
J'habite en Australie.
However the above example says j'habite DANS le Yorkshire... how can you live INSIDE a place?
