this woman's pronunciation is terrible. she says "frompiere" was she drunk when she did this?
Exactly what I was about to write. Glad I am not the only one. The pronunciation is shockingly bad.
The audio on this seems distorted? Doesn't sound anything like when frontiere is said elsewhere in this unit.
Well, it can mean a number of things depending on its application and use in the sentence:
A wilderness at the edge of a settled area of a country
An international boundary or the area (often fortified) immediately inside the boundary
An undeveloped field of study; a topic inviting research and development
for example: "he worked at the frontier of brain science"
Is there some pattern or easy way to remember whether a word is feminine or masculine, or do you just have to memorize everything?
Past 'un homme' or 'une femme', there's no pattern that's absolutely foolproof.
However, you can make a reasonable guess from the ending; https://www.thoughtco.com/french-gender-masculine-endings-1368853
Past that, loanwords usually follow the masculine default (like 'le walkman').
If you can't remember, apply a sexist stereotype and you'll probably be right, hence 'la cuisine' and 'le salon'
Didn't get the voice at all. Had to skip to the next question. Lost a heart.
