Can I say 'je suis en train de lire ce livre' if I am reading the book but not actually at that moment?
Why we use "va" instead of "vas"? I thought it was "vas" since they communicate with "Tu".
What does this term mean in the context of a hotel and restaurant ? BTW, thanks for another challenging C1. I cannot yet imagine understanding all of this without the possibility of repetition. Still plodding along with a score of 57/80 with considerable repetition required.
Could someone please clarify the rule for choosing between à laquelle and de laquelle in a sentence such as:
"The girl I'm thinking of is Isabelle." : La fille ________ je pense est Isabelle. "

Thanks in advance!
I took the test and i understand that Switzerland is feminine but why is there a masculine pronoun ils at the beginning? ils detesent la suisse. Shouldn't it be elles not ils?
What can only be at the end of the sentence, and you use quoi and NOT que.
I spent a while trying to understand this sentence, as there are several examples given later on with "que" or "qu’" at the beginning, eg qu’est-ce ?", "que veut-il ?"and indeed those starting "qu’est-ce que". I reckoned it only applies to your first group of sentences where intonation, rather than inversion is used to ask the question - is that right?
