newspaper not paper
it's trying to be more colloquial in saying this phrase
It can be used for both paper and newpaper
And by paper they mean newpaper.
why not"nous lisons le papier"
because by "paper" they mean "newspaper"
oh really? well paper's first meaning is not newspaper
It sounds more natural to say "paper" in English-speaking countries. Duolingo doesn't teach you just the formal written version of the language; it teaches you the more colloquial version.
Really? Because i used the wrong spelling of the verb for the noun and this is what it told me would be correct "nous lisons le papier" when i had typed "nous lisent le papier"
Why not? I answered so and it was accepted.
read can be both the present or the past tense of the verb in English
I put Nous lit le journal, and the correction was On lit or Nous lisons. Just looking for some clarification of why. Is On lit informal while Nous lisons formal?
"on" is for people but its verb make it act as if it is "il " or "elle" on the other hand "nous" means we so the different is in the verb but the meanings are almost equal
On lit is the informal way
On is one... Nous is we. The conjugation for nous is lisons.
I wrote "le papier" instead of 'le journal" and it was a right answer.
I typed "nous avons le journal" and response was that I forgot "lu". The correct answer being "nous avons lu le journal". My question is what is "lu"?
What's all the verb possibilities present tense for read? Like lit, lu...etc... Thanks
i cant really tell the difference between the le and la , une and un
"le " and "la " means "the" "le " for male gender but "la " is for feminine gender
"un" and "une" means "a" "un" for male gender and "une " is for feminine gender
une is the article before a feminine gender/noun. Un is an article before male gender/noun. Similarly, Le is the article before male and la before female.
is journal paper or newspaper???
Newspaper. They were referring to newspaper.
we wouldn't there be an (s) after le and journal
When do we use "lisons" and "lisent"?
Do I just have to know which nouns need le/la/l' in front of them?
Is there a way to tell if a noun is masculine or feminine (I.e. like spanish where o usually means masculine and a usually means feminine) or do you just have to memorize it?
I memorize, I don't think there's a way
It's a lot of memory, but you can get yourself in the right direction many times by looking at how the word ends. Often feminine words end with the letter "E". Chat is masculine while chatte is feminine.
What is the difference between lisons and lisions?
i was thinking the same thing
when i clicked on "read" it did "lison" and "lisions"... i put lisons anyway
"On" instead of "nous"? Nobody told me ughh
Since "un" is male and "une" is female, How will you know when to use them on things? Le journal and not la journal. So newspaper is female? Un chat and not une chat. How do u determine gender?
Can I omit the nous? (lisons un journal)
Why is "nous" not correct here?
In my test there were two similar choices.I ve saved the screenshot of the page.
I chose both of them but the app said I was not right!!!! Please answer me..thanks alot
Why was Nous 'lisions' wrong Nous lisons - fine but i got corrected earlier to 'lisions' why the difference? Or when?
Nous lisions ??? Wtf ?? It's imparfait !! Right form is nous lisons!!
