Is it better to use "on connait les enfants" or "nous connaissons les enfants" ???
i was wondering the same thing.
'Nous' is used in formal situations while 'On' is informal and more often used if talking within friends and family.
I will use the second one....
Why is "On sait les enfants" wrong?
My understanding is that savoir is used when you're talking about knowing something, whereas connaître is used when you're talking about knowing someone (or a place).
Savoir is used when you know facts, (je sais que Einstein est genial) whereas connaitre more translates to being familiar with (je connais Einstein, meaning you know him on a personal level or you are familiar with his work.)
even i did the same thing
Why is "nous.." no longer accepted?
It is accepted if you conjugate the verb to match:
why is "on" not acceptable?
It is now; but be sure to conjugate the verb in the third person singular (so like with il and elle, not like nous)
"Nous connaissons les enfants" is accepted, "Nous savons les enfants" isn't. Why?
Savons - > knowledge
Connaisons -> people
Just a rule of thumb.
I used "savons"... No?
Why is it "on connaît" and not "nous..."?
Have same question...
Nous didn't work for me either. I don't clearly understand when to use "nous" and when to use "on".
