I tried to tell my French host mom this actually while abroad, but couldn't remember the word for frog at the time. Miming did not work well and frogs don't "croak" or "ribbit" in French. I did take photos, but the frogs blended in too well with the background and she couldn't see them. It was probably the most disastrous conversation I had with her. Thank you for adding this lesson!


does cute come under beauty in bangs?


Apparently the French are quite sparing in assigning "BANGS" criteria to adjectives of "beauty". If it's not beau or joli, it is not BANGS. But that doesn't mean it can't go before the noun.


Oh? And just which adjectives, or sorts of adjectives, can go both ways? Привет


you really can't require the word 'cute'!


The frog was with a pig


I am becoming increasingly frustrated being told I cannot use any word other than cute!


What other word would you wish to use? Mignon seems to match cute pretty closely.
