Isn't une masculine and un feminine? Or is it the other way around?
Hey! Actually "un" is used for masculine and "une" for femenine.
That's is exactly true
Other way. Feminine words have an e on the end
This is true for adjectives, not for nouns.
Other way round
Other way around
I wrote Je suis un garcon et tu es une felli. Still it is shown to be a wrong answer. Please explain
"Felli" is not a French word.
Im definately confused between et and es
Are you confused between "and" and "are"?
Et is and
Es is are
Hmmm. Can I use 'suis' instead of 'je suis' and 'es' instead of 'tu es' etc.?
No, French is not Spanish. Personal pronouns are required except in imperative.
I am confused between es and et.
"Es" is the exclusive conjugation when the subject is "tu"
"Et" means "and".
I am confused where to use 'es' and 'sont'. I thought both meant 'are'.
Please learn the conjugation of the verb "être" in present:
So the differemce between "Une Fille" a girl and "Un Garçon" is the E afterwards?
"Un" is the indefinitive article "a/an" before a masculine noun.
"Une" is the indefinite article "a/an" before a feminine noun.
All nouns have a grammatical gender, so "un" and "une" are used for people, animals and things.
I wrote: je suis un garçon et tu es une fille. Is this wrong? It's is shown to be wrong. Can someone please explain ?
Did you report it during the exercise?
No it is right in my notepad I wrote je suis un garçon et tu es une fille it is right for me or maybe you spelled wrong
You have not started your sentence with 'Je', you started with 'je'. Thats the issue. Sentence starts with capital letters
Sitesurf you right
i gave it right!
How is the pronunciation of "et" different from "es"?
Homme=man garcon=boy oops
What did i do wrong
It isnt showing me the sentence I am supposed to translate so I am losing points when I guess wrong.
Does one pronounce the es in the phrase "et tu es une fille" ? The recording sounds like it's dropped, i.e. pronounced as "et tu une fille".
In theory, there should be 2 liaisons in this sentence:
Je suis_Z_un garçon et tu es_Z_une fille
Even if the woman's audio does not have them, I can hear the "es" [ey] quite clearly.
