I don't know how old this comment is, but can you screenshot? That's what I do sometimes. Although pen & pad note-taking would really increase the mental registration of tips; handwriting always does, it's a fact. ;) ...In fact, I think I'm gonna start doing that on here myself, haha.
New post: I figured out how to do the screen shots- On my phone you press two keys simultaneously, the power button and the down volume button. Hold them until the phone captures the image on the screen. Just don't overwhelm yourself with so many of them that you end up reading none of them...
Would have been nice to have been made aware of that before encountering it in transcription. I understand that the aural element is important, but when new concepts and words are introduced in transcription, where we don't have the benefit of the highlighted "new word" or "new concept" flag, it is a guaranteed wrong answer.
To simplify your learning, I suggest you consider the following:
1) "partitive" means "part of", so partitive articles are to be used with uncountables:
- du pain masculine singular
- de l'alcool masculine singular, in front of a vowel sound
- de la bière feminine singular
2) "des" is the French plural indefinite article that English does not have: plural of "un/une".
- un homme - des hommes
- une femme - des femmes
