Bonjour Stephen, I just completed the same Micro-Quiz with the question about Atlanta «J'habite à Atlanta» and it was marked as correct. This certainly leaves me puzzled why your response would have been marked incorrect. Bonne chance,

Bonjour Stephen !

You seem to have forgotten the accent on "J'habite à Atlanta."

In French, the word a (without accent) is the verb avoir in Le Présent : he/she/it has, whereas à is a preposition = in/to. :)

Bonne journée !

How do you include the accent from your keyboard?
