About.com http://french.about.com/od/verb_conjugations/a/essayer.htm suggests both essaye and essaie, but only the latter is accepted 06/14

Although "essaie" is rather old fashioned, it should be accepted.

The comment says essaie is accepted, not essaye. Did you mean to say the opposite.

Do or not do, there is no try.

October 17, 2015


I was just coming here to say that myself.

tries out is in the translation, but 'he tries out' is considered a wrong answer. sup with that?

He tries is complete and does not need a subject. He tries out is incomplete and does need a subject (he tries out for the team).

August 23, 2013


He tries out can be complete. the "for the team, dance squad, cheerleaders, etc" is understood.

In English, it is very uncommon to say 'he tries out', but more 'he tried out' or 'he is trying out'

"He tries out for the team every time they have openings." It all depends on the tense and context.

Why not "it tries"?

September 29, 2015


Il can mean it, but "it" does not usually try.

The 'e' of essaie sounds like 'é' to me - is this just me?

January 7, 2016


It's just you. Is not the "e" what sounds like "é" but "ai". If the "e" is after an "a, é, i, o or u" at the end of a word, is always mute.

The problem with "Strengthen skills" is it doesn't tell you what module. The female voice sounded like "Il le sait". Every time a practice starts with an audio, I get dinged.

ehhh... yea he's TRYING (his worst) XD

December 15, 2016


OK, I get that my English grammar was messed up but, come on!! ( He trys) That should have been accepted with a type-o advisory!

July 17, 2017


you can say trys or tries in English!

I really want to keep my streak but exams are going on now so I just keep buying the streak freezes, except I don't have any more lingots. I feel bad about asking, but can someone please give me lingots? I'm sorry for spamming, I don't know where I'm supposed to ask. I'll delete this comment as soon as I get some. Thanks!

I swear I'll repay lingots to everyone who replies to this comment eventually.

"He trys" was marked incorrect.......really? Is the spelling "tries" in both UK & American english and if that is the problem surely I should have been marked correct but with a "typo" advisory?
