"I am a woman and you are a man."
Translation:Je suis une femme et tu es un homme.
Its easy to understand but it really confusing to hear the difference between es, est, and et
They all have the same sound, but context will tell you which one to use. Tu es, il/elle est, and "et" is a conjunction connecting two nouns or ideas together.
Try taking notes and refer back to them so the words and meanings can stick to your head . (:
There aren't many vocabulary words to work with in the first few lessons, but don't worry, the sentences will get richer and more interesting as vocabulary terms are added.
The person with the purple flower picture and no name you are good at French !!!!!!!!!
I wrote it the other way around because the one before it was 'I am a man and you are a woman.' I need to pay attention.
"Je suis une femme et vous êtes un homme" is also correct and accepted.
'Tu est' or 'Vous etes'; informal v's formal. Both are correct in this sentence as far as translation goes
Why does duolingo teaches in the informal part of speech instead of the formal part of speech?
Both are taught, but the first few exercises focus on "tu" so as not to overwhelm new learners unfamiliar with French.
Hmm. That is an accepted answer and it should have worked. If you encounter a problem again in the future where your sentence exactly matches the reported answer, would you please report it in the lesson? Thanks.
If the number "1" appears, it is a bug. Staff is aware of the problem, but I do not know what the timeline is to fix it.
All nouns are either masculine or feminine in French.
A man is un homme (masculine)
A woman is une femme (feminine)
i got it right only instead of je suis une femme et tu es un homme i wrote je suis un femme et tu es une homme. lolz
is es male or female, I thought it was male? so why then is it es instead of et when describing a male in this case?
"et" means "and" "es" means "is" They do not mean the same thing, regardless of feminine/masculine
Sorry "es" means "are" as in they are. My bad............... You might be thinking of "est" which used for he is/she is. To clarify, "est" is the form of is/are used for he & she; "es" is the form of is/are used for you; there are more versions of this verb for I, they, we. Meanwhile, "et" simply means "and"
