what is the difference between endroit, place and lieu?


IMO, in French place encompasses the broadest range of accounts, incl. square/plaza, seat (both physical & abstract), place (both physical & abstract), room/space, job/position, etc.; lieu roughly equals the place in English; endroit refers to determined place or part of something, whose meaning is the narrowest.


why is 'connaitre' used instead of 'savoir'?


Savoir refers to knowing some knowledge or skills (be capable of) whereas connaitre refers to knowing some people or places (be familiar with).
