I agree. Bad nasal "i" in my opinion. Brushkng up on my French, and that is wrong. It does siund more like "vent",
Du = de le. It's a contraction. So, you can have de la, de l', and du (de le).
Je bois du vin is also 'I drink wine'.
Even though there is no article needed in the English statement, you need an indefinite article while making the same statement in French. So,
- For masculine nouns, you use de le or du.
- For feminine nouns, you use de la.
- For plural nouns, you use des.
Any time you see something spelled like "in", it's pronounced as a nasalized open e. An open e sounds like eh, or the middle vowel of the word "bed". Then you nasalize the eh, giving it the brighter and more pinched tone.
Comes with practice, I think. If you click on the tortoise icon you can notice the words better.
"de la" is the feminine version of "du", which is a contraction of "de le" (its incorrect to say "de le", so the contraction is obligatory).
akash- du always go with a masculine noun, du vin, du chocolat. de la is SOME for feminine words, de la viande, de la nourriture, de la soupe.
akash- du is always before a masculine noun. and de la in front of a feminine noun. Je mange du chocolat, only a part of the pieces in the box. je mange le chocolat, I eat all of it. Or if you have a choice, you use the definite article. Will you eat the salad or the chocolate?, LE chocolat, pas la salade. The chocolate, not the salad.
It sounds like the woman said "bois" with a "v". Is there such a pronunciation rule, accent or just a common way to say?
guiharrison- it's because it's a machine, the sound isn't perfect, in bois, no V sound.
No, because Le vin would be a specific type of wine you are drinking. The statement required is a general one that says you drink wine.
I put, I drink of the wine. And got it wrong even though the translation said that and it never said "some." Can someone explain this to me. :(
why cant it be "je bois le vin"? and the correct answer is is "je bois du vin"?
why is it wrong when I put "I drink the wine." as apposed to "I drink some wine." or "I drink wine."
I am so amaZAYNingly dumb that I spelled wine vin!!!!!! What is up with me?!?!?!?!!?
