How do you say "My (noun) broke" in French?


February 8, 2018


Je dis "a cassé"

Donc ... "mon verre a cassé" (my glass broke) "ma voiture a cassé" (my car broke)

Are you a native speaker? Well, I'm not one but I think in this case we should use the verb "être":

"Ma voiture s'est cassée", my car broke, not specifically by someone.

To me, it feels like if you use "avoir" it means that someone broke something, like "Il a cassé mon coeur".

Since I'm not a native speaker, I'm not sure. Let me know if I'm wrong, it's just what it feels like to me.

Hi how are you supposed to know if “they” is female or male when you are supposed to translate if from English into French?

By context, but you won't always be able to know. When I'm not sure, I use ils because it means both males and females.
