I can never tell what she's trying to say when it comes to 'canard'. I always think she's trying to say 'kenbar'...
Wow, I read this then got the same question. The recording sounded like "ken doll" to me and I had to idea what she was saying, then I remembered this comment and wrote down "canard." Thank you so much lol
I always remember this because my French teacher taught me and my friend how to say that we have rainbow colored ducks in our backpacks.
I tried to put the right amount of expression in my voice for this one. Duolingo apparently is astonished too that you are eating my duck, and accepted it.
Question. Not quite sure i understand when every form is used. My, for example, can be ma, mon or mes. How can i tell which one i need to use?
The verb conjugates depending on tense and person, just like English. I eat, you eat, he EATS, we eat, they eat. Je mange, tu manges, il mange, nous mangeons, ils mangent.
but what is the rule? it isnt like plural adds an s or something, it seems inconsistent that you have je mange and then tu manges (with an s) and then il mange without an s
That is a good rule of thumb yes, but for nouns. Remember "manger" is a verb so it won't follow that pattern.
"Ne mange pas" would be the imperative mood, where in 1st group verbs like "manger", the 2nd person singular has no "-s" ending. So "tu manges le pain", "tu ne manges pas le pain", but "Mange le pain" and "Ne mange pas le pain." You'll be glad to know that (as in most things in French) there are exceptions, but you'll get there later on.
I hear kenair, but after listening to the native recordings on Forvo it sounds nothing like that. Always double check with Forvo.
this is terrible! why would they put such a violent, barbaric sentence here? that duck probably had a name! that duck was a loved, cherished pet! That duck had a life! that duck should be avenged!!!!!!!!!!! Hehe. jk :D
This is poor English... You would never say you eat my duck! To exclaim it would be you are eating my duck!
i wrote you ate my duck isn't that correct then it wrote you eat my duck, no one says that!!!!
