"I am a man and you are a woman."
Translation:Je suis un homme et tu es une femme.
"es" is used with 2nd person singular (tu). "est" is used with 3rd person singular (il, elle, on, things).
Un is for men, so "un garçon/ un homme" and une is for women so "une fille/ une femme"
Un is for men, for example, un garçon. Une is for women, for example, une fille
I was led astray because the voice was the lady's voice lol... so my mind reversed the words unconsciously, and didn't catch the error until I was marked wrong. Haha, gotta pay attention I suppose, because sometimes you just don't know.
When do I use la/une vesus le/un. I kknow the masculine and femininr but confused sbout ehen to us un or le
"un/une" are indefinite articles, like English "a/an". "la/le" are definite articles, like English "the".
Both mean "you are" and are counted as correct here on Duolingo.
In real life, use "vous" with groups of people (plural you) and to address strangers, your boss, your teacher, and anyone to whom you owe respect (singular you).
Use "tu" for family, friends, and children.
When should you use "es" or "et"? I always get it wrong. Its it masculine feminine or....?
Et is the conjunction meaning "and" in English.
Es is the second person singular conjugation of the verb être: tu es (you are).
The words sound the same (homophones) but the spellings and meanings are very different.
