I'm French ;)
No way to do it but to memorize it
What is possède and why is it being used here?
"she has an animal" and '"she possesses an animal" mean the same thing.
Similarly "elle a un animal" and "elle possède un animal" mean the same thing.
Why "a" and not "as"? Remember we say "tu as". and not "tu a".
Because it is "elle a" and not "tu as"
What does 'a' mean ?
Hi. I wonder. When is it UN and when UNE?
All French nouns have a gender: masculine or feminine.
If you want to know more: http://french.about.com/od/grammar/a/nouns_2.htm
So every word has a gender in french i get that, La,Une and -e for females
and un, le for males
but if we are speaking about a specific animal which is a female can we use une instead of un
Elle a une animale. refering to the female animal she has.
