  5. "Les verres sont propres."

"Les verres sont propres."

Translation:The glasses are clean.

December 17, 2012



I like that it now gives you a second chance if you accidentally write the translation instead of the French!!!


for "verre": how do I distinguish between a glass and a drink? For instance, here I typed "the drink is pure" when the correct response is "the glass is clean". A lesson before this said "verre" can be a drink.


It's the same as in English. Like "I'll have a glass" (of whatever drink has just been mentioned." It doesn't mean you're consuming the glass itself, which as it happens is not a liquid anyway.


i hear: "les verts sont propres", and it's ok, as well...


Funny how "propre" looks like "proper". :)
