J'adore ça vs. J'ladore. I still don't understand the difference.

J'adore ça vs. J'ladore. I still don't understand the difference.

Are there any more examples you could give us? I used the direct object le with the apostrophe and it was marked wrong. How can we tell what word should be accented? Is ça always correct as opposed to le, la? In other words, are there certain times when the direct object must be before the verb or certain times when it has to be after the verb? Thank you.

Without the context it is difficult to say for certain but normally 'le' and the verb 'adorer' will be used for a person rather than a thing...

You will use 'ça' with foodstuff -

Vous aimez les épinards? oui, j'adore ça

Vous aimez Georges Clooney? oui, je l'adore 

Hope this helps!

Hi Joanne,

Your apostrophe is in the wrong place, could that be your error?

It should be  -

Je l'adore

Hello, yes I realize that my apostrophe is in the wrong place here, but it wasn't in the wrong place when I answered the question. Can you please explain the difference between ça  and le. Why would "Je l'adore" be marked wrong?
