The differences in sound of Le/la/les.
"Le" sounds more like "lehh" in english "la" sounds like "luh" and "les" sounds like "lee." At least on this app.
I've been redoing some sections trying to decypher exactly what Im hearing so that Im not just memorizing whats at task but understanding what and how its being said so I can say it myself more confidently myself.
People have too much attitude on here. Calm down , it isn't that serious. It's an app for learning. People make mistakes and learn from them... none of you are fluent in anything overnight. Even if French is your first language, you didn't grasp the differences in English or any other language in 24hrs either. Humble yourselves. Arrogance is weakness..
French adjectives agree in gender and number with the noun they modify, colors included.
There are a few exceptions, when it comes to colors, though, for all colors that are also the names of a real thing: orange (une orange); marron (un marron = chestnut); bleu clair (compound color). The latter remain invariable (no agreement).
We cannot do that, because in some cases, repeating a word is correct.
It needs human beings to decide if a repeated word is correct or not and we cannot read every single submission (it would need an army to deal with tens of thousand entries per day!).
Therefore it it up to you to check on your translations before you send them.
