Les costumes de Mardi Gras

Great exercise designed by you , Madame Aurélie .

Just want to question on ‘dans le dos’ for the wings as being in the back or sur le dos (on the back). Also the text is written in Le Présent though I assume Julien is deciding her attire for future. Maybe it can be in Futur Proche.

 Thanks for your constant support and perseverance.

Bonne journée !

Hi Shrey - prepositions have no logic to them I'm afraid so you have to learn each expression one by one. "Dans le dos" is "on my/his/her back" (the article doesn't match either!).

Also, don't assume that "sur" will replace "on". If you tell someone you're "sur le train" they'll think you're on top of a train, not inside it.

Hope that helps!
