what's the difference between "un" and "une"?? I always trip on that. Goodness.
Whats this??? I have write: ,,un not une''!!! Schade, geht das auch??? (is that correct???)
No, "une femme, un homme" is "eine Frau, ein Mann" and "A woman, a man" Check the new Tips & Notes at the top of the lesson page and the new "Overview of French grammar and vocabulary explanations... " Discussions page.
Why cant you drop the 'e' in Je suis, to J'suis? I thought you could drop a letter so long as it was the 'e'?
I think you can only do that if it is a vowel or silent start to the verb (e.g. J' habite- pronounced JABEET). 'Je suis' has two parts to it where the silent starting verbs can merge into each other, hence the dropped 'e'.
Fun Fact!: "madam" came from the French "ma dame", which means my lady. So I guess dame means lady
La or le means "the", while un or une means "a" or "an". Saying "the woman" is entirely different from saying "a woman"
