Hello - I am confused about the construction with etre and en retard. Are both the constructions below correct? From my understanding of the video and Chris' reply to another question, only the 2nd one is correct. However, the first is used throughout the lesson.
2. Je suis arrivé en retard de dix minutes. [construction in video]
Both your suggestions are correct. You could also say -
as in the lesson.
As usual, there are several possibilities to say the same thing in French but my advice would be to concentrate on the ones in the lessons which will be used to test you.
I'm thinking that you have not read all of the lesson.
If you look at the end of the piece you will find special consideration for certain verbs one of which is arriver -- have another look and I think that you will find the answer to your question there.
