Le can be changed to un right?

can I write un mouton instead of le mouton?

Hi Jenny,

A sheep or the sheep  -- sheep is a countable or uncountable noun therefore we can say un mouton as an indefinite or we say le mouton as a definite.

Hope this helps.

Vocabulary quizes

It would be good to be able to test yourself on vocabulary. One way would be to show French and English in separate columns to allow one column to be hidden. However, I think you can come up with even better ways to quiz and also track vocabulary proficiency in the same way as you track grammar.

Hi Claes,

Thank you for your suggestion but can you re-post via the Help & Support section as this is a forum for language and culture questions.

Many thanks...

I completely agree with Claes. It is my biggest criticism of the program. The other testing is so good and comprehensive, and I have always wondered why no vocabulary testing. I will also post on Help and Support!

"abeille" and "âne" with "un (une)"

Why "abeille" and "âne" is written with "un (une?)"?

ChrisC1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

It's because the definite article would contract and you'd not be able to differentiate la and le.

l'abeille --> From this it's impossible to deduce the gender because l' could be either la or le. Therefore if you write une, the gender is clearly feminine. Same goes for âne being masculine.

Le poulet -- the chicken (denotes the species without reference to gender)
La poule -- the hen (that's a female chicken)
