"I eat baguettes."
Translation:Je mange des baguettes.
Why do you have to put 'des' before baguettes? There is no 'some' in the English sentence.
'some' is optional in English but 'des' is mandatory in French. "je mange baguettes" is not a grammatically correct sentence.
when do I use des or les?
That is a good question, we had a previous exercise I like bread, I love baguettes. = "J'aime bien le pain, j'adore les baguettes." leading me to believe les and des were interchangeable in this case.
I got it right, but I'd like to know if I could've written "je mange les baguettes" or in this case "les" would represent only specific baguettes. Thanks in advance
I got this one wrong too, I allowed myself to be fooled by the "Je" singular.
Is it just me or every time I type in the right word it says I got it wrong
Omg. Will I ever get this? Okay, "des" is the plural of "de la" is that correct? And "du" is the masculine partitive. Is "des" okay for masc AND fem plurals?
This sounded to me like the subject was declaring "I eat baguettes" vs "I'm eating some baguettes." In a previous lesson, the correct response to the subject declaring that they ate sandwiches was "les sandwiches". Would you clarify?
I want to know if there are synonymous of a baguette in english , can someone help pleas .!
A baguette is a particularly French type of bread. It is a long, skinny, hard-crusted chewy bread. So no, there's really not a synonym.
