The mouse-over text says "beautiful, handsome, nice".
Nice is not accepted and "pretty" is listed as a correct solution. Frustrating.
Is there a difference in French between Jolie and Belle or are they perfect synonyms?
When it comes to describe a woman, there are nuances. "Jolie" is pretty, with fine, regular lines. "Belle" is beautiful, as a whole, her inner beauty showing on the outside.
No, of course. if you describe a landscape, a dog, a painting or any other object, "beau/belle" or "joli/jolie" will do.
Yet, there are also degrees of aesthetical value between joli/pretty/lovely/nice and beau/beautiful. Conventionally, "beau, belle" translate to "beautiful" here, whichever person or thing is.
I hear: "J'aime ma belle jupe." Anyone else? How can one differentiate between the two?
In France, the vowel in j'ai will usually be /e/ but in j'aime would be /ɛ/
Je ne comprends pas pourquois "I have my lovely skirt" est la mauvaise traduction.
Please read these:
Beauty, age, goodness and size come before the noun, everything else after!
I put pretty skirt it was marked wrong what would you say to tell her skirt was pretty ?
I love Duo but I dread these audio questions. I can never understand what the heck these robots are saying.
