Is this wrong or right?
On Duolingo, in French, it says the verb "to read" is lis. But in school, they taught me, the verb "to read" is lire. I even checked google translate and word reference and they verified the verb "to read" is lire. So is Duolingo wrong?
In this case, google translate is right. Lis is not "to read" but "read" as part of the conjugation. Je lis (I read) tu lis (you read) You probably rolled over it on Duolingo in the middle of a sentence, where it was conjugated.
If you see a verb in the infinitive form, google that word (in this case, lire) + conjugation and you'll get a lot more info. Here's the conjugation of lire:
