"What are they learning?"
in situations where we place cards in order, I feel it would be appropriate to have a hyphen available to select, whether or not it is needed.
My understanding was that the 'standard' way to say "what" would be "qu'est-ce que". So why is it shortened to just "qu'" and then joined with the word for learning (apprennent)?
Weeks later i stumble across this question. Get it wrong the same way i did before. Still don't understand why and then realize ive already asked the same question again lol, doh
Is it because "what" (i.e. "que") ends in a vowel and the verb starts with a vowel that they're joined?
I know with another inversion example such as "Que porte-t-il" there is a similar rational but between the verb and the subject (and they use t to connect them)
I can't figure it out figure it out either. Perhaps just an error by the developers.
I don't think so. My understanding is that you can form a question using "est-ce que" or using an inversion, not both. So you could say "Qu'apprennent-elles ?" (que = what, apprennent-elles = are they learning ?"). Or you could say "Qu'est ce qu'elles apprennent" (qu(e) = what, est-ce qu(e) = is it that?, elles apprennent = they are learning).
this is a new exercise that has been added recently, so if you are sure you have an answer that is correct you can report it so it can be added.
it's feminine when all of the "they" are female and masculine when the group is mixed or all male. i think. i'm not an expert.
