In Duolingo's "Tiny Cards" for this lesson, it says that "il propose" is translated as "he proposes" which means the same thing as "he suggests." I used "proposes" since that is what I learned from the other Duolingo app. I reported this since there exists a discrepancy. If "he proposes" is not correct, then the Tiny Card app needs to be changed to "he suggests."
If I was saying this in normal speech, I'd say "the pasta", as in "the waiter recommended the pasta"
the hints said he suggests pasta with SOME cheese. i wrote that and said that it was wrong
"proposes...suggests...recommends" all mean about the same thing in English. The only difference is emphasis, with "suggests" being less forceful than "recommends", which is less formal that "proposes". If there are French equivalents to this, please advise. Oh yes..."advise" would fit in tis category too.
I wrote "he suggests some pasta with some cheese" and it was wrong. I'm having trouble knowing when they want "some" to be used. there are times when I don't use "some" and I get marked wrong. Can anyone tell me how to know when I need to use the word some and when I don't? Thanks
