This, that and so

In discussing the use of "le" or " l' " in a response as a substitute for an idea in a previous statement the explanation is that in English we often use "that" or "it" in the same way. But in the translation you use the word "so," which is what we usually say. It's a small thing but I'd suggest adding "so" to those other words in the explanation.

This relates to:
Y can replace à + thing / object / location (adverbial pronoun) -

Bonjour John, I understand your question; however, I am unable to locate the lesson relating to "le" or " l' " in a response as a substitute for an idea in a previous statement. I do recall this lesson; however, it would be quite beneficial to all users, if you would consider re-posting your question along with the related lesson for that precise usage. Bonne chance,

Bonjour encore John, Please know that I was able to locate the lesson you spoke of: https://french.kwiziq.com/my-languages/french/view/706 I do see your point and agree with you that in English we do use «so» quite frequently. Perhaps, the team will consider the inclusion of «so» in the list with «that» and «it» A very good observation. Bonne chance en votre continuation,
