Se tromper

Se tromper

For the sentence “Yes, you’re not wrong” I wrote “Oui, tu ne te trompes pas” thinking that I could use “se tromper” as an alternative to “avoir tort”, but it appears not. Can you explain ?

Hi Anita,

To be wrong is avoir tort’ and ‘se tromper’ is  to be mistaken which have slightly different meaning and uses...

Hope this helps!
