Can someone please explain to me the difference between a child and a kid? I don't see one...
Additional vocab has been added including the French noun gamin which actually translates to "kid" therefore you must translate enfant correctly to "child".
In English a child and kid can be synonymous thus both terms should be accepted.
True however the app gives alternative translations which previously said kid.
What is the correct pronnunciation of Enfant I am not able to differentiate it.
I said exactly as it did with a french accent and it did not pick it up? What kind of bull honky is this? :'D
La enfant - the first word ends with a vowel and the next begins with one. As the first word is an article it requires elision - L'enfant.
But we say l'homme. If we take le homme, the second word does not start with a vowel. What am I missing?
It applies to the words that begin with h as well as vowels with some exceptions like "the bean" "le haricot"
The h is soft sounding like in english so it sounds like a vowel. Simular to hour. We dont say a hour we say an hour
i don't think enfant is considered a feminine word, so "la" wouldn't apply. I believe they use "l'enfant" instead
I think "enfant" can be both masculine and feminine, depends on the sex of the child. Either way, since "enfant" starts with a vowel, we use l' .
That's true. Depending on child's sex it can be feminine or masculine (like a lot of nouns denoting occupations)
The word "l'infant" is a contraction of the words "le enfant" (meaning the child. Because enfant starts with a vowel, it is grammatically incorrect to say le enfant (they do this so that the language sounds better), you must say l'enfant (the child).
You use l’ infront of words that start with “h” or a vowel, like the word “l’homme” or “l’enfant”. La is used for feminine words, like “la femme” or “la robe”. Hope this helps!
The instructions say to type the French that i hear, not to type the English translation. So I type, L'enfant a une livre, and it keeps telling that's incorrect, it should be the child has a book. What am I missing??
Is it a mistake that there is no liaison between "L'enfant" and "a" or?
What is the importance of putting an "a" in the sentence? Any idea people?
So we have Le masculine and la feminine and both mean the but why do some words get l'?
