What's the etre part for?
Just optional, like "he seems to be rich".
Ohh, I see. Thanks.
If you literally translate it, it is he seems is rich. does etre become part of semble? helping verbs?
Did you read jumbo cracky comment just above?
What's the difference in using "semble" vs "ressemble"? Like, why can't I write "Il ressemble être riche.'
Intuitively I would translate it with:
Il semble d'être rich
I know there is a rule not to use de + Inf. after the verb aimer...
Is there a same rule for sembler ?
