I'm marked diamond even though I still can't wrap my head around the word order reversion of " Il rappelle son ex à Maria, elle rappelle sa soeur à Alain... "

This relates to:
Rappeler (à quelqu'un) = to remind (someone) -

Ran into the character limit that sucks, so I could barely type the question and had to redo it. Point is, I'm not tested on what I actually need to learn about.

Hi thanks for letting us know about this. I checked and I can see the issue here. We'll increase the number of questions which do seem far too few for a topic of this complexity.

I couldn't get this one either. When I was trying to use "to remind," it always sounded like I was saying something completely different (i.e., "He reminds her ex of Maria"). 


Then I used "looks like" instead. Suddenly, it made sense. So far, it seems to work! ("He looks like her ex to Maria").
