Maybe the title should include "de" i.e., faire exprès (de)?

Should the title include the word "de" (faire exprès de)?  Right now it just shows faire exprès.  Thank you.

Hi Robin,

The lesson includes both the stand-alone expression -

faire ( quelque chose) exprès

as in -

Tu l'as fait exprès You did it on purpose

and

'faire exprès de faire quelque chose' 

when it is followed by another verb in French

Nous avons fait exprès de casser le vase = We broke the vase on purpose
