How is it that Juliette says " je passe mes vacances” but then asks “ comment se passent tes vacances?” why is one reflexive and one not please?
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
In the first Juliette is passing (spending) the time/duration of the holidays; in the 2nd the question is how did the holidays, as an event, go ? (or pass ‘themselves’, if you will)
