Une soirée vs un soir?

Une soirée vs un soir?

I understand that une soirée indicates the duration of the evening, while un soir indicates the general time of day, but given this is a Level 1 quiz, is that not a bit advanced for this level? As far as I recall the only context given in Level one for "une soirée" was for an evening function or party. I was marked wrong for using choisissez rather than choisis, presumably because choisissez is too advanced for this level?

Hi Gilberts, 

1. Both soirée and soir are accepted for -

'This is special evening for me.'

2. choisissez is wrong as it was 

I choose a few movies 

Hope this helps!

Bonjour Gildberts,

Careful with the verb forms of choisir:

Je choisis -- (1st person singular, present tense)
Vous choisissez -- (2nd person plural, present tense)
Je choisissais -- (1st person singular, imperfect tense)
Vous choisissiez -- (2nd person plural, imperfect tense)
