salesclerk = (actually the word for seller) man = vendeur lady = vendeuse Sra (aka Mme) I'll flag this in case you have any questions. Often, when you can't find the word you want in a dictionary, try a synonym.

Part I 1. estáis is the vosotros/vosotras form, which is the plural tú or plural familiar so the answer should be plural, as it would be if the verb had been están ustedes. - estamos estudiando 4. IS ustedes so again, the answer must be plural = estamos ac...

#4. Because the question uses the future "tendrá" it might be better to answer with that same tense = tendré #7. With an infinitive, you have 2 choic3es for the placement of object pronouns. Either in front of the conjugated verb = "Enrique te lo q...

The word order is what you need to see. When there is both a direct object pronoun and an indirect object pronoun, the indirect comes first, before the direct. Direct Object Pronouns: me, te, lo, la, nos, os, los, las Indirect Object Pronouns: me, te, le, nos, os, les. Note th...

Yes. However the Académie Française exaggerates the end, so instead of "danse" which is one syllable (the "a" pronounced "ahhh" of course), it would be "dan-se" (dahhnsuh) or two syllables. This makes French a bit more diff...

Actually this is very easy! What you are looking at in the basic sentence is a subject pronoun (I, you, she, he, we, they, etc.) plus the conjugated French verb form that agrees with that subject. The use of "on" makes the subject impersonal. "One" is the t...
