Hi Sylvia,

You can say either -

'Le chômage est un gros problème' 

or 

Le chômage, c'est un gros problème 

Both meaning, 

'Unemployment is a big problem'

Hope this helps!

It's a French style thing. In French you often times repeat the subject.

thx, I just asked because it counts as wrong if you put it this way (with c'est) in the test ;)
