What is the difference between
"Elle aime la danse" and "Elle aime danser" ?
In the first sentence, danse is a noun. It means "She loves dance."
In the second sentence, danser is a verb. The sentence means "She loves to dance."
Hope you only had these 2 questions; it's all I saw.
Elle aime la danse. = She likes dance. The dance is a noun but the translation of "the" is usually left out.
Elle aime danser = She likes TO dance. "Danser" is the infinitive = "to dance."
Essentially it is a difference of "part of speech."
EEK! I see Ms. Sue already got it! Sorry, but we both say the same thing! :)
