the 'et' is not audible in the normal speech
Why 'The thief stroke me on the forehead and left' does not work. Is it because of 'strike' instead of 'hit' ?
The past tense of "strike" is "struck", not "stroke". "The thief struck me on the forehead, and he left" would be fine.
Thanks a lot, I have to review my conjugation of the English verbs !
No problem, I know English conjugations can be a nightmare!
"... and he ran off" is much more likely.
Yes, but much better would be either "and ran off" or "and then he ran off".
The thief hit me on the forehead and he went away is also a correct translation. Once more, poor translation ability from Duolingo.
What a strange sentence!
"... et il est parti." is not clear enough to understand & must be re-recorded. Reported 09/15/2021
