    The preposition 'da', I thought that meant from (and things like since and 'chez' and stuff)

    In Italian, what would be the difference between 'I have men's books' and 'I have books from the men.'

    I got this on DuoLingo, said the latter and was marked wrong.
    Maybe the first one would be something like " Ho dei libri degli uomini " and the second one " Ho dei libri dagli uomini " ? Although it's pretty weird to say something like that..

    Exactly - you only bring it home with you if you're telling someone at home about it. If, say, you were to write a little story where there was no dialogue and no other characters besides the protagonist, he/she/it would only ever be taking things anywhere.
    I see. You meant sentences like these: "He takes his son at home"; "She takes his dog in holidays". But if I ask someone to fetch something, than 'bring' is the right word: "Hey, Mario! bring me a glass of water from the kitchen, please!". Are my explanations correct?

    Alors... Je voudrais devenir professeur des langues à l'avenir, et je pense que ce serais un bonne idée si je fais un stage. Le mois dernier, j'ai fait un stage avec les professeurs des langues au collège, et dans le troisième j'ai fait un stage dans une école primaire, mais je pense que je dois avoir plus d'expérience. Est-ce que vous avez des idées sur que je pourrais faire dans les vacances? Je sais que c'est difficile parce qu'il n'y a pas d'écoles ce qui sont ouvris en ce moment, mais je serais reconnaissante si vous m'aidez. :-) (also, quite proud of myself as I only looked one word up!)

    Alors... Plus tard, je voudrais devenir professeur de langues, et je pense que ce serait une bonne idée si je faisais un stage. Le mois dernier, j'ai fait un stage avec les professeurs de langues au collège (?? " collège " in French means middle school (11 to 14 years old). High school (15 to 18 years old) is lycée.), et dans le troisième (??? the third what ?) j'ai fait un stage dans une école primaire, mais je pense que je devrais avoir plus d'expérience. Est-ce que vous savez ce que je pourrais faire pendant les vacances? Je sais que c'est difficile parce que les écoles sont fermées en ce moment, mais je vous serais reconnaissante si vous m'aidiez. :-) (also, quite proud of myself as I only looked one word up!)

    J'espère que ça ne te dérange pas que je te corrige
    Au fait, le participe passé du verbe " ouvrir " est " ouvert " --> " les écoles ne sont pas ouvertes en ce moment ".
    Je ne sais pas trop ce que tu pourrais faire comme stage : peut-être améliorer ton français en France en te trouvant un petit boulot là-bas ?

    Latter doesn't make sense... Compared to the first one anyway
    Doesn't make sense in English? :confused:

    Another question, I thought for 'my' 'their' 'his' etc... you always had the article ('il mio'...) but on DuoLingo they sometimes leave it out. When do I use it and not?

    Wow, my French is awful! It's only been 6 weeks - and there's another six before I go back to school! A-level should be fun... And I can't go to France, I don't have the money or the time :-( Thanks for correcting me, by the way! :-)

    Over the past week, I have been reading my more extensive German grammar books. Each and every day, I discover a grammar point of which I was ignorant. I am convinced I violated each and every one of them in my A2 German exam essay, and the AS one in January. (No wonder I didn't get an A!)
