The things I learned to far: Une is feminine Un is masculine La is feminine Le is masculine (Correct me if I'm wrong)
Help! This is getting tedious. I finished my tree a while back and my lessons were golden for many months. Then Duolingo changed. My lessons including the basics are red, blue, purple and green. 15 lessons of the basics are so monotous.
C'est une torture. Je ne suis pas calme!
just a side note, the ne is very formal, its more casual to say "je suis pas calme"
La is female and le is male, same with un and une, un=male and une=female, sometimes an 'e' at the end of something means it's female, but not always... Hope I helped, have fun learning!
That's a beginning and is true as far as it goes. However it's much broader because its not just people (girls and boys), it applies to almost every thing (ie all nouns, adjectives and adverbs). We refer to the concept as masculine and feminine. So "la" is for feminine nouns, pronouns, etc. and "le' is for masculine nouns and pronouns. Its way beyond just people.
Help me... So the first one was " la garcon et rich" i think.. So then the next was "la garcon est calm" so... If i remember these right.. Is calm feminine or masculin? ( please forgive my bad spelling)
Anything masculine (such as boy) uses "le" so you need to change that. And the French word for calm (English) is five letters = calme. It is always spelled with an "e", whether its masculine or feminine. Hope that helps.
Can someone explain the diffrence between la and le along with l' because its kinda confusing to me.
la = for feminine nouns le = for masculine nouns l' = for nouns that start with a vowel, where it would be easier to not pronounce the "a" or "e" but rather to just say the "l" sound and slide into the noun.
So basically the French population is made of rich girls and calm boys who love eating oranges and pizzas and have lots of red apples and red dresses
"est" goes with he, she, it; also called third person singular. Not sure but I think "es" goes with "tu" ; second person singular.
I say them the same, but I'm not French. I'm still learning so maybe someone in the know will answer you.
I learned French in school and I thought the ‘e’ at the end of ‘calme’ was for feminine nouns. So why does this one have an e if the noun is masculine??
