"Pendant que nous mangeons."

What is the use of que in this sentence?

January 25, 2013

"Pendant que" together are a phrase that means "while". Que does not have an individual role in the sentence but merely acts in conjunction with pendant.

oh another while, along with alors and tandis :)

does it also come in two contexts, as these two do - temporal and relational?

so pendant is 'during', pendant que is 'while' ?

They need to include "que" as part of "pendant" when peeking.

I translated the fragment as "during which we eat". It is marked as wrong.

Anyone got any thoughts on that?

out of all the sentences in the world, i sure wish duo would pick less fragmented and non-sensical ones. :)
