Hi Liz,

Prices are always written in figures.

Could you give me an example of the run-on sentences you mean ?

Cécile, next time I spot a run-on sentence, I’ll send a message. I thought prices were always written in figures, too, but the lesson required quatre euros to be spelled out. Perhaps it’s because the customer was being told verbally the price.

In any event, I am learning! Thanks so much for an outstanding site.
