I am confused as to which phrases are acceptable in current lingo. For examples, "bartoter dans le marché boursier" for dabble in the stock market. Is this completely wrong? If so, why?
Is "faire les classes" wrong for learn the ropes?
The dictionary that I looked at used "examiner" for review; others used "revoir"
Finally, I am mystified as to why "une hypothèque" is not given as an option for mortgage. This is a word I heard most often when I lived in France.
