I dont heat the "est" in the voice. why?

because in French you never pronounce the last letter. ( maybe there are exceptions not sure, but mainly it is not.)

What is the difference between "noire" and "noir"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Boyan.Hoflack

la femme noire ( femme = female so you have to add a E at noire) le garçon noir ( garcon = male so you do not have to add a E. )

Noir says something about the Subject, and when the subject is female you add a E

I hope this is understandable :D
