Agreement Concept of Direct Object for Reflexive Verbs

It would be really great if this VERY important concept of Direct Object could be added to this lesson. - https://french.kwiziq.com/questions/view/wrong-answer-nous-sommes-brosse

More importantly because, this lesson says this « Note that when être is used as the auxiliary in compound tenses such as Le Passé Composé, the past participle must always agree in gender and number with the subject of the verb.»  --- and this statement is not true for this lesson on reflexive verbs as per the link. It creates a confusion. Kindly rectify this incorrect statement and help us new learners with the necessary concept within this lesson, please!

Thank You.

Bonjour Aashpreet,

You are correct that this particular grammar point does need to be added to our content. It has been raised by other users and it is definitely on our to-do list.

Merci de votre contribution et bonne journée !

Salut Aashpreet,

Very fair point, but best posted here  --> https://french.kwiziq.com/contact-us

This would be the most effective way of getting the attention for a review of the lesson systems.

Bonne journée

Jim
