Why can''t I say " nous mangeons le riz"?
Imagine you bought a big packet of rice, you won't be able to eat it all, but you choose a portion, and that would be some of the rice.
Why are we using 'du' here? isn't 'du' supposed to stand for 'de + le' meaning 'of the' or 'from the'? Why is 'des' not used?
It's so the "g" stays soft.
same as "Z"
What is the difference with 'du' and 'de'? I'm trying to learn french through just duolingo and I'm often having a hard time because it doesn't explain some things
Not sure i can hear the "du" in this audio. It's that the way it's supposed to be said?
What is the purpose of 'du' in this kind of context?
