I am having trouble reconciling the 'correct' answer to the test question with the lesson. Specifically, below is the question and correct answer according to the program, but this use of 'attend un garçon' meaning 'expecting' does not seem to reflect the lesson. What do I have wrong?
In the example you give 'attendre' means both to wait and to expect and we would need more context to determine which one is correct -
Cette infirmière attend un garçon ( qui va naître vers la fin du mois)
Cette infirmière attend un garçon ( qui va la ramener chez elle )
But I would probably lean towards the first one!
Hope this helps!
To expect in general means "s'attendre", EXCEPT, as noted in the lesson: ATTENTION: when talking about pregnancy, you use attendre:
