The audio isn't playing for me on this one. I hear nothing. I heard audio for the other 19. It repeated the question later (as Duolingo does when you get one wrong) and there was no audio again. Slow and fast replay buttons did nothing. Maybe it was a once off but noting it here incase.
La prononciation de "grises" est TRÈS incorrecte. En français, on doit prononcer " griZe", et non pas "griSSe". J'ai constaté ce même type d'erreur dans la prononciation d'autres mots: ainsi "les chats" (en français, on ne doit pas prononcer le "s") est prononcé "les chatSSE. Cette erreur est très grave car on enseigne ainsi, une très mauvaise prononciation de ces mots .
"botte" is female word so the adjetive is too female => gris (male singular and plural) becomes "grise" (singular) or grises (plural). And "marron" is the same for female and male . How to write the colors in french is very difficult even for French ! https://www.francaisfacile.com/exercices/exercice-francais-2/exercice-francais-31112.php .......Please don't be afraid by these rules...but you will find "gris" and "marron". I hope I help ;-) if not => "poubelle" ! (dustbin)
"Marron" is an exception because it is the same for both singular and plural objects. "Une chaussure marron et des chaussures marron."
Good morning Sara,
DL already provided the possibility of not doing listening and/or speaking exercises.
You first click on the upper right hand corner where the three dots in a column appear. Then you click on "settings". After that scroll down to "Accessibility" and turn off the listening and/or speaking exercises.
Blue means it's on. Move the icono to the left to turn it off. It is grey when it is turned off.
Emerald, Many adjectives in French are positioned after the noun, not only colours.
