In the phrase, '"ce qui m'a enfin permis de m'ouvrir" why isn't there an "e" at the end of "permis", since the direct object, "m", is a woman?
I think there is a typo in one of the accepted answers for the line starting "les plats sont un sandwich au jambon ...".
I wrote plats principaux, which got corrected to plats pricipaux (ie without the n).
j'adore la série Lupin et l'acteur Omar Sy. vous avez raison, il possède un charme hors du commun. je l'ai vu pour la première fois dans le film "Les Intouchables". Maintenant, je vais devoir le chercher sur YouTube pour regarder les sketchs! :)
Which is correct je ne veux pas or que ne je voulais pas
I put the cedilla in "Ils placaient" and was marked wrong, yet the lesson shows it there
Please could you explain why prochain is placed in front of 'concert', when it is normally placed after nouns?
It would be useful to have a quiz in order to practise all the places and buildings in a town. This would help us to consolidate what is actually quite a long list, but very useful vocabulary when one is visiting France.
I'm at >97% on A0 and yet basically all of the questions are A0-related. Any ideas on how to move onto A1 material?
I wrote "leurs carrieres" since the speaker is describing multiple actresses and their careers. This was marked wrong.
I redid the lesson, (link below), which covers this topic, and there are several examples, such as "leurs parents" and "leurs chaussures". It seems that this topic has come up in the Q&A before, but I am still confused as to when to use the plural form and when to use the singular when one is referring to more than one person and their possessions. In this case, it seems that saying "leur carriere" would imply that all the actresses are sharing the same career.
Any help would be much appreciated. Otherwise, I enjoyed learning about Aissa Maiga. I will certainly google her.
Notre/nos/votre/vos/leur/leurs = our/your/their (French Possessive Adjectives)

P.S. Apologies if this question appears twice - the first time I posted it, it simply disappeared, so I've rewritten it here.
