At the end of the conversation the Aunt says the mirrors are too cute. Then she says "I'll take them." How many does she want to buy for her niece?? I would have expected her to say "I'll take one" Or does "Je les prends !" not mean I'll take them. I'm confused.
Dictation exercise A2
'Ils sont trop mignons ( les petits mirroirs avec la Tour Eiffel).... je les prends' , says the text -
They are so ( here trop means so very much ) cute ...I 'll take them.
You heard correctly I do agree that logically 'Je vais en prendre un' or 'J'en prends un' would have been a better answer but maybe Je les prends was chosen for grammatical input at that level...
Hope this helps!
I am sure the experts will respond in due course but I took this to mean "they are so cute" and that for some reason she wants more than one, perhaps all of those shown to her.
