How is "j'ai un bicyclette" unacceptable?
bicyclette is a feminine noun: "J'ai une bicyclette" is a correct answer.
All nouns ending in -ette are feminine, except "un squelette" (skeleton).
Why does Duolingo teach bike as Velo but my french teacher said Bicyclette?
Bike is velo, bicycle is bicyclette. Correct me if I'm wrong.
When did bicyclette become velo? I was taught ‘bicyclette’ at school but that was many years ago.
I am fairly sure French people don't say, 'J apostrophe ai un vélo.' But, perhaps I'm wrong.
Of course, they don't.
Velo is totally incorrect. Bicycle is bicicleta. Bike is velo.
Yes, "un vélo" is correct to translate "bicycle".
"Bike" can be "un vélo" or "une moto".
"une moto" would be "a motorbike", wouldn't it?
