"The girl has a dress and a book."
Translation:La fille a une robe et un livre.
In french, nouns have genders. Some are "male", others are "female".
Robe is a "female word", so UNE. Livre is a "male word", so UN.
I guess you just need to learn the gender for every word ^^
Say the word out loud as a male, then as female, see which way it sounds better. If that doesn't work, Google is very helpful.
I asked the same question to a French friend. They told me "You just have to learn". Lol.
How do you know that a ship is a "she" in English. Same thing. It just is.
How to learn the gender for the word...for me Robe is like a masculine name...
The only way to learn nouns' genders is to learn each noun with its indefinite article, like this:
- Dress = [une robe] - as it it were a prefix.
Gave the corect repsponce but keep saying its wrong
I believe it needs a full stop. Just put the dot at the end of the sentence andvit will accept it.
Teething problems. I wrote the exact sentence and was still marked as wrong.
"La" is for a feminin noun. "Le" is for a masculin noun.
Ex : Le livre, le garçon, le croissant. La voiture, la fille, la maison...
Why is it 'La fille' and not 'l'fille' And why is it une robe and not un robe and un livre and not une livre And is has written as "a"??
La is feminine so the girl is done la fille. You only use l' if the is in front of a word starting with a vowel. Robe is female while book is male so tge have the correct corresponding un or une. And yes has is a.
in the practice session once i placed UN LIVRE and second time i placed UNE LIVRE and i got myself wrong both times. Is there any problem in my understanding or it's an issue?(shouldn't the answer be un livre?)
Is there a difference in which comes first? I put "robe" before "livre" and it said it was wrong. How?
I believe you are supposed to write it how the prompt words it. There should be no difference in real life which comes first.
This is not helping at all! I place " un " before livre and keep saying have this incorrect but whenever I type in the word "une" before it's still says it but vice versa, WTF!?
I'm a bit confused when one should use et for and vs est. Could someone help me out with this? Is it est for a word that is feminin and et for masculin words?
le fille a une robe et un livre I keep writing it right but it won't be accepted, why?
Is there a way you can determine the gender of a word without memorizing it? Thank you!
Is it "un" or "uh" when speaking? The female voice makes it difficult to hear and I'm confused on it.
I typed, La fille a une robe et un livre. But Duo says I should of typed, La fille a une robe et 1 livre. Note: the 1 is underlined. I don't understand what's wrong.
