Bonjour Madame !
Thank you for your support and Yes, I will surely co-operate with your French team with my queries in future and provide you sufficient time to answer my problems.
The example “ Vive le temps, vive le temps, vive le temps d’hiver doesn’t relate to en, l’ , au as being taught in the lesson. It might be a special, specific case. Thank you for your feedback.
Merci bien et bonne journée !
The preposition 'de' is often used in French to link two nouns together (which isn't required in English) unless they are separated by a hyphen (centre-ville, pause-café ...)
For instance in this example it is 'winter weather/ time' .
So you would have -
Un arrêt d'autobus = a bus stop
Hope this helps!
Thank you Madame Cécile for explicating this very particular case of “de”.
Merci encore ! Bonne journée !
