"c'est important de apprécier ses études" why does the duolingo prompt give you 'apprécier' as a clue/hint and then not accept it as an answer??
I agree. I would translate "to enjoy one's studies" as "profiter de ses études".
Try to learn a new word, so I used 'd' apprecier', but somehow rejected by Duo.
"S'amuser dans ses études" could be acceptable.
As such, the reflexive "s'amuser" (lit. to amuse oneself) cannot have another direct object.
Can you please explain more specifically? 1) Do you mean "c'est important de s'amuser dans ses études" is correct? 2) Sorry, I don't get what your second sentence means.
1) Yes, "c'est important de s'amuser dans ses études" is correct but it's probably not on the list of accepted translations. The main reason is that "to enjoy" is certainly different enough from "to have fun".
2) As a reflexive verb, "s'amuser" literally means "to amuse oneself". So the "s'" (oneself) is the direct object of "amuser" and you can't have "ses études" as another direct object. Literally, it would be something like: "it's important to amuse oneself one's studies".
