"A dog is eating bread."

Translation:Un chien mange du pain.

April 6, 2013



I think "une chienne" should be correct too, because "a dog" could mean a female as well, if I'm not mistaken.


In english, a female dog is called something that begins with b and ends with h. food for thought.


Same in French, but also technically acceptable. Nothing wrong with the word bitch if used properly.

My dog is a black, hairy, smelly bitch.


i just dont get this. When do you write le/la and when do you wrtie un/une?


Le and un u write before male, la and une before female. I guess in french unlike english every noun has gender
