It is the 'like' that confuses me there is no 'like' eg ça sent comme du chocolate. I cannot grasp 'who' is smelling or 'what' is smelling and I get it wrong each time!!!
Or how to send this quesiton!!!!! Caroline
In French there is no “like” as in English. Something doesn’t smell like chocolate, it just “smells chocolate”. Sounds weird, right.
Ça sent le chocolat — That smells like chocolate.
That helps a lot! I had no idea before! Thanks Caroline
