Hello, I have been reading FAQs and searching the internet for a way to make a study group or become a teacher in KwizIQ. Is it possible, and if so, how?
I'm wondering why in the sentence: "...during that period, I did not have to take the train.", the imperfect of devoir is used instead of the perfect tense? Since it is a specific and closed period of time (three weeks), doesn't that mean it's not an ongoing action? Thanks.
When the owner is a person, you can alternatively use "de qui" as well as dont:
Les enfants, de qui je connais la maman, sont bien élevés.
The children, whose mum I know, are well behaved.
Can I say that
Les enfants, de qui le père est riche, sont bien élevés.
The children, whose father is rich, are well behaved
I wish your helps...

Can I say "et je pourrais dormir plus longtemps" instead of "je pouvait"?
Can ensuite be replaced with puis in this sentence? Are the two interchangeable or is there a slight difference in usage?
I was wondering if someone could explain a little more in detail why we use the present tense in the following example:
"Depuis que je suis toute petite, tout ce qui est français me fascine."
I think I kind of get it for the fascination piece, but not the "since I was little".
The first sentence uses J'ai passe' for "I have passed." To me, this should be je passais (imparfait). The writer is not describing a unique instance of an event in the past but rather he is making a general description of his actions in the past. He is describing multiple instances.
