Hi Dave,

In the lesson you flagged we are exploring the use of chaque and tous les for something you do regularly, every ...

However you wont hear a French person say chaque an, they will say, 'tous les ans' or 'chaque année'.

Well spotted though!

The following lesson will explain in what context you will use words like- année, soirée, matinée etc.

Hope this helps!
