Bonjour Madame Cécile ! A question on Petit Ours Brun fait des crêpes.

Bonjour Madame !

Thanks for posting such a captivating and mesmerising reader. But I would like to ask a question regarding a phrase which reads-

Bravo Papa! (rires) On n’arrivera jamais à faire de belles crêpes !

Indeed, here the Brown Bear comminicates with his dad but why is the verb ‘rire’ conjugated as ‘rires’ though I learnt from a lesson that it is - Il rit/ Elle rit/ On rit .

Is this a special way of expressing one’s emotions while transcribing in French ?

Merci d’avance ! Bonne journée !

Hi Varsha,

I have not done this exercise but I think it means ‘laughter’  rather than the verb to laugh... in other words you can hear ‘des rires’ which is plural in French...

Hope this helps!
