would 'je vais faire tout pour arranger la situation' be ok or does the tout need to precede the faire?

This is a case where "tout" as a one-syllable word, needs another placement to be better heard.

Please note that it is different if "tout" is further described:

  • Je vais faire tout ce que je peux pour...
  • Je vais tout faire pour...

what's wrong with I Will?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sitesurf

I will do" is a simple future tense, and the French sentence has a near future construction, which translates to "I am going to do".
