French HELP
If you meant to say "I have a bad complexion", then you could have said: "J'ai un mauvais teint". Thus: Chére Mme Guérit, J'ai mal à la gorge. J'ai un mauvais teint (une mauvaise mine) et je suis fatiguée aussi. Dois-...

Sorry - my computer did it again! it posted before I was finished with the sentence. The sentence should have read: if this is correct, then the word "sept" in 1750 should be pronounced "seh" . Is that correct or should it be pronounced "set", lik...

FRENCH to SraJMcGin
Could you please clarify the pronounciation-matter with the word SEPT? In my book it states that the final consonants of the numbers 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 are silent before a word beginning with a consonant. One of the examples it gives is: sept plumes (seh plüm) - no &quo...

French
You are right, it IS MILLE sept cent, except when it is used for DATES, then it is MIL (that's what I was thinking of when I wrote "mil")

French
Actually I think it was supposed to read: mil sept cents (not mille) And I think that neither the "p" not the "t" are pronounced when the word "sept" is followed by a word starting with a consonant?

Thank you, Isabelle. Yes, I do know that puis-je and suis-je do not have the same meaning; (pouvoir and être, respectively.) What I meant is that I know one can say "puis-je" but in my book it gives the other form(with "est-ce que")for the first perso...

So is it maybe:"Un jour je ferai un voyage en France" and "Je vais faire un voyage en France en été."??? And, if that is so, does that hold true for every verb? Like "je te donnerai un livre" and "je vais te donner un livre dema...

Thank you also so very much for all the above information as to the gender of the countries, mountains and waterways. I truly appreciate all your help!!!

FRENCH
Thank you very much for the explanation.I didn't realize that "France" uses no article; I thought it was "la France" and "le Maroc". Merci encore une fois!!

FRENCH
But why does it use DE France (without the article) but DU Maroc?

FRENCH
I just read the following in one of my books: "Je suis importateur d'objets d'art de France et du Maroc." I am wondering why it is "du Maroc" but not "de la France". Thank you for your explanation.

Merci beaucoup!

1) Since it is "je t'ai aimé" would the negation be "je ne t'ai pas aimé"?? 2) Is the negation of "je t'aime" "je ne t'aime pas"? (It wouldn't be "je te n'aime pas" right? Somehow that does...

3. and 4. This looks like a question (do you take the bus.....?) Therefore I would think the correct plural form might be: "vous prenez .......?" 5. Les élèves sont très intelligents et ils apprennent beaucoup de choses. 7. Ses copains prennent.....

French
Looks good to me. (Perhaps on 3. and 4. I would have added "oui" in front of the answer.)

FRENCH
Would "je te n'aime pas" be correct, or "je ne t'aime pas"? Encore une fois - merci beaucoup de votre aide.

Sorry, I have no idea why this posted twice; especially since I wasn't even finished yet!!! I still wanted to add "thank you for your help".

Actually, now that I think of it, sandstone is also resistant to weathering, thus the least resistant would probably be LIMESTONE. So, my guess is GRANITE for the most resistant and LIMESTONE for the least resistant. (If I remember correctly, sandstone consists mostly of fine-...

I would guess it's granite for the most resistant and sandstone for the least resistant.

I think I have just found the answer to, at least, one of the questions. The sentences with the être verbs are both reflexive and, thus, do not require agreement. Is that correct?
