Question in the film clip at 7:00mins into it...

An example is given = elle ouvert sa fenêtre en se levant. Is this correct?, or should it be elle a ouvert sa fenêtre en se lavant?

This relates to:
Forming Le Gérondif: en + '-ant' (while/by + -ing) -

Bonjour John,

Yes, you're absolutely correct: it should indeed be "elle a ouvert sa fenêtre.". "En se levant" is correct, meaning 'while getting up', versus "en se lavant" meaning 'while washing'.

Thanks for pointing this out!
