    How do I say "I find French and Psychology very interesting and fun but Accounting is boring"?

    Oh and does this make sense?

    "J'ai a un cour de Psychologie le lundi a` quatorze heures et le mardi a` deux heures."

    "J'ai a un cour de Francais tous le jours sauf le lundi de onze heures a` duex heures. Et j'ai a un cours de comptablite' le lundi et jeudi a` seize heures"

    Thanks!

    Both your sentences are pretty much fine, but there's one change you'll need to make - getting rid of the second a. If it's a conjugated form of avoir, you've already done it with j'ai, and if it's meant to be à, you don't need it.

    One other thing - I've never heard ennuyant used for 'boring'; the adjective is ennuyeux. You could use barbant, but it might be a bit too familiar.

    Hope this helps!

    je trouve que le francais et le psychologie tres interessant et amusement mais comptabilite est ennuyeux.
    The other two sentences are fine except you don't need the 'a' so it's j'ai un cour...

    inte'ressant needs to be plural (inte'ressants)
    amusement isn't a word in French (should be amusants)

    Could you confirm (in English) what time your lessons are? Because you say that you have Psych on Mondays at 2pm and on Tuesdays at 2am (would be am by default seeing as you're using 24 hour clock here) Unless you mean 12pm? In which case you want douze not deux.

    Je trouve le français et la psychologie très intéressants, par contre la comptabilité m'ennuie.

    J'ai cours de psychologie le lundi à 14h et le mardi à 12h.

    J'ai cours de français tous les jours à 12h, à part le lundi où le cours est à 11h. En plus, j'ai cours de comptabilité le lundi et le jeudi à 16h.

    la cour = court, playground
    le cours = lesson

    Ennuyant is older and Canadian French for boring. In Europe, ennuyant is stronger and the meaning is closer to problematic.

    "En revanche" and "mais" are better than "par contre". "Par contre" is grammatically incorrect, I know it is weird

    If it's good enough for Stendhal, Montherlant, Anatole France, Henri de Régnier, André Gide, Marcel Proust, Jean Giraudoux, Georges Duhamel, Georges Bernanos, Paul Morand and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry then it's good enough for me, no matter what Voltaire says

    It's not technically grammatically incorrect either, just not recommended.

    Ah ok, I did not know that. I remember we got penalised each time we used it in classe prepa.
