Do I not need to use ‘y’ as it means “to arrive there’? ‘mais j’y suis arrivée’? Please explain. Thanks.
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
The English actually says-
'Yes, but I arrived a bit late' = 'Oui, mais je suis arrivée un peu en retard'
and as the previous sentence had 'there' in it -
'And you, were you there?' = 'Et toi, tu étais là? '
There/y although grammatically correct would be totally superfluous ...
Hope this helps!
Thanks. Another puzzle solved!
