Basically the plot of Orphan

very confused about "that is" "it is" "he is"

Why is "this is no child" wrong?

Why not "she is not a child"

'Ce' does not refer to a specific person or thing. It usually translates to 'that.' If you want to say she is not a child you would say: Elle n'est pas un enfant.

please tell me someone else confuses enfant with elephant haha

A way for me to remember is that "enfant" is similar to "infant".

Can someone please explain why it's "Ce n'est pas un enfant" and not "Ce n'est pas d'enfant"?

Enfant means child... In my oppinion this is wrong. Garçon is boy.

I attempted to use infant and it was rejected. Is there another word that clarifies infant from child? Child=enfant, infant=?

I think bebe (with the accents) is the word for infant

Surely " un enfant" translates as "a child" and not one child
