    One day I will learn how to spell this verb. It's not marking my translations as incorrect, but it's gently letting me know that I regularly misspell every. single. conjugated form. lol.


    I assume you have an issue with the S-SS.

    If you pronounce the word correctly, you will remember how it is spelt:

    • an S between 2 vowels is pronounced Z
    • a double S has the S sound.

    choi-[Z]-i = choisi

    [S]-ons = ssons

      Thanks Sitesurf. That's a very useful tip!


      Perfect, that has helped me too. Thanks


      Thank you! For some strange neurological reason, choisissons always brings sausages to mind in a micro second. I think your tip for recalling the spelling works much better. Our sausages are not necessarily as good as yours but do try the Cumberland if you are in the UK. Now back to verbs...


      Is there any easy way to remember which adjectives come before or after the noun? Please and thank you.
