"I am a boy and you are a girl."
Translation:Je suis un garçon et tu es une fille.
I wrote Je suis un garcon et tu es une felli. Still it is shown to be a wrong answer. Please explain
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.
"Es" is the exclusive conjugation when the subject is "tu"
"Et" means "and".
Please learn the conjugation of the verb "être" in present:
- je suis, tu es, il/elle/on est, nous sommes, vous êtes, ils/elles sont.
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 ?
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
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.
