Translation:I am eating an apple and she is drinking wine.
Its virtually impossible to understand the second part of this sentence, after she says "et"
She does sort of slur et and elle, but one way of telling the difference between the pronunciation of il and Elle is that il sounds like "eel" and Elle sounds like "L".
it sounded like there was a /v/ after boit, so i said "elles boivent", and got it wrong >:(
I'm bothered by the fact that I'm penalized for not knowing the gender of a noun, but I don't recall any lesson that emphasized gender. I understand that it need to tell me I made a mistake, but it could pass or give me a half-point or something, especially when writing out a spoken sentence ("une" and "un" sounding pretty much the same)
its really challenging to hear "bois" vs "boit" french... my love hate relationship with you
the last letter tends to be left out when speaking, so they are said the same in most cases, it really only appears in writing.
This sounded like je mange une pomme mais elle boit du vin. Is there any way to hear the difference?
boit: 3rd person singular (so use with elle, il) bois: 1st/2nd person singular (so use with je, tu)
