    I feel that the "in general" at the end of the answer is rather clunky usually when making such a generalisation one would start the Sentence with the word generally.

      Is the word mois necessary when forming such a sentence? How would one write it otherwise?

      Is there any reason this sentence is not simply Paris est agréable en mai, en général?

      Placement of in general is uncomfortable There are 2 better options In general Paris is .... and Paris is generally more pleasant .....

      I tried "In general, Paris is pleasant in the month of May" but that wasn't accepted. I agree with all the comments complaining about placing the phrase "in general" at the end of an English sentence.

      Why not "Paris, in general, is nice in May?"

      "Paris, in general, is nice in May." Or "In general, Paris is nice in may."

      Would this also work: "Paris is agreeable in the month of May, in general"?

      The solution would not be used in UK English. Paris is, in general, nice in May or generally Paris is .... would be much more acceptable, but if one wants to progress one has to use a poor translation.

      So in general must be at the end, but the month (mois) is completely missing... one of those random translations you cannot guess the first time.

      Generally Paris is pleasant in May.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/genny92984

      Usually, Paris is pleasant in May

      In general, Paris is nice in May ------- what is the problem with this sentence???

      Paris est généralement agreable au moi de mai, est mieux
