Sitesurf, I am so thankful. I recently retired from teaching in the US and moved to Montreal where my parents lived before I was born. They spoke french as their native language but when I was young decided to not use french in our house in NY. Times were different in the 1950's. I never thought I could learn french at my age. After a year of spending 1-3 hours a day with duolingo, I am able to read the newspaper, instructions, signs, etc. I am now beginning to interact in french (making purchases, ordering, etc) and understand when people speak. Speaking is hard but I now know I can do this. I am looking forward to meeting my cousins and uncle this winter who speak french and whom I have not seen in over 30 years. I now know I am on my way through this journey! Thank you so much for all your help, Denis Bouchard

C'est le jour où CJ.Dennis l'a commencé la dernière année. Pourquoi il a choisi ce jour, je ne sais pas. :)

Quand a-t-elle été une moderatrice ? ( J'espère que c'est correct ! )

(Also with the punctuation, I wonder if I was right in adding a space before and after the parenthesis)

Depuis environ quatre années, si je me souviens correctement.

(Je pense qu'il devrait avoir "depuis"... "Depuis quand..." ou "Quand est-elle devenue...")

Je me demande si la date... fut (?!) 7 Septembre.

(Okay, my French is not good! Yet! I wonder if the exact date was September 7th. I'm not sure about "depuis" but été just looks wrong! There's something wrong about it! Thanks Trofaste!)

Pas pour autant que je sache, mais peut-être. (Not as far as I know, but maybe)

Avec "depuis" - "Since what time has she been..."
Avec "quand" et "devenue" - "When did she become..."
Et puis, si je ne me trompe pas, "Je me demande si la date était le 7 septembre." Je pense que l'imparfait est mieux que le passé simple, et aussi je crois que l'article avant la date est nécessaire.

I have a long way to go in French, it was just proven! :D Thank you! (You can be sure I won't learn those now, but I'll remember the sentence, "Je me demande..." and I may come back to inspect this again. Just saying this so you know that "Thank you" isn't empty!)

Don't trust me too much! I may be a fairly advanced learner but I'm still a learner who sometimes makes very, very stupid mistakes! So I recommend double checking with someone else before applying anything I say too widely. :)

Une million de sentiments de reconnaissance, Sitesurf ! Vos explications inlassables et très claires nous aident sans mésure. Sans vous, nous serions complément perdus.
