Well, while taking the lessons, I got a question to translate into French - 'I walk with my dog in the evening.' Since I had learnt that evening is 'soir' I typed 'dans le soir' at the end. But then it showed that the correct translation was 'dans la soirée.'
So, what's the difference between soir and soirée and similarly also between jour and journée?
