I'm not a native speaker but I'm sure this sentence has caused a few giggles to some people ;)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't going around saying that in France. Maybe "Elle a une chatte"? heehee

I went to google images to know what you are talking about... There's no better dictionary!

Can someone explain what the deal is with this phrase being vulgar?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nberger1999

Same as in English (maybe other languages too, but I don't know enough German yet...)

They really should fix this. It's ridiculous and NO ONE says "chatte" in this sense.

i laughed out LOUD. For kicks, I put the dirty English translation and laughed harder that it was correct. Oh dear.

Please dont use une chatte instead of un chat all throughout this module D:

it is really hard to tell the difference when she says "chat" and "chatte"


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

if you listen really carefully, you can hear the "t" pronounced in "chatte" but not in "chat" (which sounds more like "sha")

How do you say a male cat?


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

"Un chat". Sounds like "sha".


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

I really thought she said il y a une chatte


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

I don't understand. Is cat not always masculine? Is there not another way to say a female cat?

So I entered "He has a ❤❤❤❤❤" as my answer...and got it RIGHT! I'm finally starting to enjoy learning French. More. Please. ;-)
