Really odd that sugar is the first option :)
The French word for shit is merde
We often say sugar, shhhhhoot, shhhhhivers or shhhhhite instead of shit, The beginning of the words is the same and if you drrag out the beginning you kind of get the satisfaction of swearing without actually swearing.
The French have the same thing - and can say mercredi instead of merde
Thanks Sitesurf - I knew mince was another thing you could say but didn't realise that it came about as a substitute for merde in the same way as mercredi - I thought it existed alongside it as a much more polite alternative (whereas with mercredi, you're obviously wanting to say merde)
Your teacher is right when they say that "every Tuesday" translates to "le mardi".
However, you can use a plural form when the weekdays are specified with "de" + a period of time, as follows:
- les dimanches de mon enfance = le dimanche dans mon enfance
- les mardis de mai et juin = le mardi en mai et juin
- les samedis d'été = le samedi pendant l'été
Ah, but in this exercise, there was no "de" after "les mercredis". But the singular "le mercredi" was not used. I'm just frustrated that, after drilling it into my head to use the singular form when talking about every Wednesday or whatever, here I'm told to use the plural.
