tu appelles Shouldn't this be (t'appelles)? If not, why?
Are you confusing "Tu t'appelles" which is the verb 's'appeler' (to be called/named) with the verb 'appeler' in the lesson which simply means 'to call'.
"Tu appelles ta mère ce soir sans faute, d'accord?" (You are calling your mother tonight without fail, okay?)
"Tu t'appelles Marie, n'est-ce -pas?" (Your name is Marie, isnt' it ? ")
Hope this helps!
no, "tu appelles" is correct. There is no elision between the letters u and a. Almost all elisions happen between a preceding e and the following vowel. For a more encompassing list of possibilities look here:
