I've just translated with one word "Agree?" As far as I understand, we are dealing here with an elliptic French sentence, which is perfect for the colloquial style. The translation "Agree?" (without "Do you...") perfectly corresponds structurally and pragmatically. D'accord? (Agree?) that is why I also think that the translation "Agree?" should be allowed. Especially when we deal with a single sentence. In this case the aforementioned pragmatic meaning is predetermined per se. D'accord? (Agree?)
Great question, and no one has answered. I would like to know the context in which this would be used. Is it like Hagrid saying to Harry Potter, "All right there, Harry?" Like, the American, "How are you doing?"
Or is it used like Captian Jack Sparrow's "Savvy?"
A. I thought we'd walk into town today, okay? <---d'accord B. Yes, okay! <---d'accord
Any French ppl out there to clarify context use of d'accord?
I translated to "right?" (with the question mark) and 'got it wrong'. They wanted 'alright?' (with question mark). A more proper translation would have been "agreed?" (with question mark).
Perhaps 'right?' was too informal. Okay, I'll take the hit and try to remember that French is 'more formal' than American English - which is why I want to learn French.
"Okay" is informal, and although widely used, is still US English. UK English should also include something like "Is that alright?" or "Do you agree?" or "Agreed?" Since duolingo took away the ability to type an answer and forced narrow, US-English options on its users, it has become less useful to me as a learner and much more irritating. I feel as though I am being forced to spend as much time learning and applying US English as I am French. But I already speak English fluently. It's the French I want to improve at.
I 'agree' Fantoche. We would say I agree, okay ( the answer given by Duo, or Deal. Lol just find it so funny that in the exercise After the one it says we have to say "Je suis d'accord" we HAVE to answer ok Lol If Duo wanted to teach us that important phrase, they should of put it in a conversation where answering 'I am in (full) agreement . Then Je suis D'accord " makes perfect sense! Plus there would not be any discord with what it has already (and continues to do) taught us.
