Why not Patrick sent mal

JimC1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

Hi John,

Patrick va mal  --> Patrick is unwell (physical or emotionally health-wise)

Patrick sent mal mauvais --> Patrick smells bad 

 

If you want to use sentir to express a more emotional health aspect you would need to use the verb reflexive se sentir.

Patrick se sent mal. --> Patrick feels emotionally (or physically) unwell/bad.

Always according to the context. 

Bonne continuation

Jim
