The same problem, I think, as with La Sorbonne issue below

Why is "Qu'est-ce que c'est une baguette" marked as being wrong for "What is a baguette?" when the notes say that "Qu'est-ce que c'est un stylo" is correct for "What is a pen?"

Hi Adrienne,

You can express 'what is something? in four different ways -

Qu'est-ce que la Sorbonne? 

Qu'est-ce que c'est la Sorbonne ?

Qu'est-ce que c'est que la Sorbonne?

C'est quoi la Sorbonne? 

The last two would be used in every day speech. 

If your correct answer wasn't accepted it is probably a problem in the specific quiz, will let Aurélie know...

I’m wondering that also, Adrienne. Surely that is also correct? That is what is stated in the lesson. I would normally add the “que”, but I’m not sure it’s absolutely necessary

Thanks Carrie and Cecile.  There is clearly a small glitch in the quiz program.  Adrienne

Bonjour Adrienne !

Indeed, there was a few correct answers that hadn't been marked properly, but thanks to you, it's now been fixed :)
Merci et bonne journée !
