1. the directios say to use 2 pronouns. Where are they? Does that mean subject pronouns, or direct and indirect object pronouns? Was there a model/example to follow? Pehaps it means: Il (L'agence de voyages) les leur a envoyés? Now try the rest and I'll come ...

Accents are very important in French. If you don't know how to make them with the computer, I need to know 2 things: `) do you have a PC or a Ma c & 2) do y ou have Wi ndows or not? 1. The passé composé has accents on -er verbs = a demandé une pê...

You can talk about things in your home, as well as people. That will help stretch out the sentences. First of all, the demonstrative adjectives are followed by a noun. Then, in the second sentence, you drop the noun and put the accent on the demonstrative pronoun. Look in your...

Please note 2 things first. In the instructions, the word "asked" is past tense. In the model "j \'ai demandé" is also past tense (passé composé) Therefore, I believe all your verbs should be in the past tense. For example in #1 = ...

Then instead of the word "and" it should have been "or!~" Sra

When I read the instructions, I see "in the past AND in the future." Does that mean that each expression should have 2 sentences? I expected to find either all past and then all future, or each expression together = first in the past (for example) and secondly in the...
