why is "it is strong" wrong? I thought Il est is either "it is" or "he is"
yes, you are right, if you get the French sentence first, you can imagine that it is about something rather than someone, or even an animal.
I said "it is strong" and got it right
why not "il es fort " is correct
Verb être, like all other verbs in French, has a different form according to the subject:
je suis, tu es, il/elle/on est, nous sommes, vous êtes, ils/elles sont
Is there a difference in pronunciations of 'il' and 'ils'?
I thought this sentence said "Ils est forts."
They (male or mixed) are strong. = Ils sont forts.
The clue here is in the verb. Il est fort (He is strong) v. Ils sont forts (They are strong) Otherwise, the difference is that when next to a vowel, the 's' in Ils is carried over in a liaison.
no, is not a differnet prononciation of "il" and "ils", but for "ils", the verb will be "sont" and for "il" it will be "est"
(I am french, sorry if my english is not correct...)
Can forte also mean beinf good at something?
