I don't think I understand french punctuation conventions. Is comma(,) in French equivalent to a semicolon(;) English? And, what is a colon(:) in French equivalent to in English? Also, if anyone could post a link that maps French punctuation to the English equivalents, I would be very grateful. For example, I know we use « » in French for quotes. I'm looking for similar information. Although Duolingo is forgiving with the punctuation, but I'm trying to learn that as well when possible.
Here is a good article on punctuation: https://www.thoughtco.com/how-to-use-french-punctuation-4086509 Another more in-depth one is: https://anglocom.com/en/punctuation/ They differ on a few points, so you probably want to read as much French as you can to see how they are actually used now.
