‘mais je suis arrivée un peu plus tard’

frequently asked question

Hi Judy,

The English actually says-

'Yes, but I arrived a bit late' 'Oui, mais je suis arrivée un peu en retard' 

and as the previous sentence had 'there' in it -

'And you, were you there?' = 'Et toi, tu étais là? '

There/y although grammatically correct would be totally superfluous ...

Hope this helps!

is it just me or does the audio say "tard" rather than "retard"?

frequently asked question

Hi Sara,

Having listened to the exercise, the reader does say,

en r'tard 

which is how the French would probably pronounce it in every day speech....

Where do you teach putting "Plus tard" at the beginning of a sentence.

frequently asked question

Hi  Michael,

The position of adverbs is quite complex in French as it is variable and often governed by reasons of style.

In the case of 'plus tard' which is an adverb of time ( enfin, soudain, autrefois, maintenant,  etc.) it can be put at the beginning of a sentence for the sake of emphasis. 

But there is no hard and fast rule here.

Hope this helps!

How has your day been?
