why Il est un professeur et moi aussi is not correct

April 3, 2013


I'm pretty sure you leave out the article in this construction with occupations, thus "il est professeur et moi aussi" or "je suis medicin" etc.

Yes. Also Il/elle are used generally when the noun is not modified by an article, and when the noun is modified use ce (or c'est). http://www.languageguide.org/french/grammar/pronouns/cest_vs_il.html

Agree.This was pointed out in a previous lesson.

You should say "C'est un professeur" or "Il est professeur". In French, we don't use an article before professions : "He is a doctor" = "Il est docteur" ; "They are football players" ="Ils sont joueurs de foot" ; "I am a dentist" = "Je suis dentiste"

French grammar is mindblowing OMG!

Why is it "il est professeur et aussi je suis" wrong?

July 4, 2013


It should be 'je suis' not 'je sui' but even then it wouldn't work out right, as it would mean "and also I am".

'Moi aussi' is the normal phrase and is really useful.

I'm still struggling with word order. I put 'cest un professeur et aussi moi' and that's wrong. But I have no idea when one word needs to come before another.

there must be some obscur rule because were I am from Il est un professeur is entirely correct as for the second part i would use "et j'en suis aussi"

September 22, 2013


I used "et ainsi j'en suis" .. can someone explain why this is wrong?

January 12, 2014


i wrote prof and it was wrong......pretty sure prof is ok as short for professeur

I got 'il est enseignant et je le suis aussi' as the correction. Why is there article le?

February 28, 2014


Because in this case 'le' stands in for the noun 'enseignant'.

April 30, 2014


Why is it je 'le' suis aussi
