does "rester debout" mean to remain standing? if so, could i say I was very embarrassed because i remained standing while the rest of the class sat down
: j'ai été très gêné parce que tout le monde dans la classe s'est assis mais je suis resté debout

  • French -

    You could. The use of the passé composé implies that you "suddenly" felt embarrassed. If you would prefer to describe the feeling of embarrassment, it would be the imperfait = j'étais...

    also for description = je restais (I was standing vs. I stood)

    Sra (aka Mme)
