 Bonjour Andrea,

Past participles can be used as adjectives: on their own, after the verb of state ‘être’. They need to agree in gender and in number with the word they refer to.

Les enfants épuisés par le voyage… = the children tired out by the journey…

Les enfants sont fatigués = the children are tired

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Bonjour Nurgül,

"Tout au contraire" does not work: it is used on its own.

C'est tout le contraire ! = It is quite the opposite

Elle n'a rien perdu ! Tout au contraire! = She didn't lose anything! Quite the opposite!

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
