    I can't remember. I know you omit the le with parler, but that's all. That sentence is just what came out this morning.

    Constant? Bambirina? Someone?
    I was more the negation bit...

    I think I've caught your illness through the virtual germs.

    I would like to take this opportunity to advise all UK residents that your risk of being bitten by a native snake can be greatly reduced by walking very heavily. Adders aren't interested in deliberately attacking humans, but they will bite defensively if you step on them. If you stomp about and make noise, they'll get the hell out of dodge before they get stepped on.

    As I said, that's the bit I don't know.! Yay, eh?

    I detect a missing "für"
    "Menschen die nicht für ihre exotische..." oder?
    Anyway "Ich stimme damit zu"

    There's a missing word, but it's not für. It's auf. There's also a missing letter. It should have been "auf ihre exotischen Tiere".

    Have you heard about this guy? I think he's just amazing and truly gifted! :eek: I would love to be able to speak several languages (mostly fluently) as well as he does. And I love how he changes his facial expression and tone of voice when switching languages! It's quite funny.

    I first came across this a couple months ago. It made me take my french more seriously.

    I figure if a 16 year old can be that great at 20 languages, I can at least do a few myself.

    Yes, absolutely! If it's been done before by a 16 year old (I guess he's now a bit older) - it means you can also do it!

    Question for anyone who does French- which is correct? (I'm doing a CA on Thursday, so I can't ask my teacher for help)

    '... gens sympas qui sont m'aidé(e)'

    Or '... gens sympas qui ont aidé moi'

    What are you trying to say? Also sympa stays sympa because it's shortened sympathiques

    Maybe the whole sentence would be useful :mmm:

    'Il y avait beaucoup de gens sympas [my French teacher marked that right and French is her first language, so now I'm a little confused ] qui sont m'aidée'. So 'there were lots of kind people who helped me' (it's talking about work experience)

    D'accord.

    Il y avait beaucoup de gens gentils qui m'ont aidé.

    Isn't it? Because the past participle doesn't change because the auxiliary verb isn't etre...

    I'm really ill though, so I wouldn't trust myself.

    Euh, this is why I try and avoid reflexives. One of the only things I kinda struggle with grammar-wise :rolleyes:

    On our past tense sheet it says that all reflexives follow etre? So 'qui me sont aidé'?

    I hope you're better soon

    Reflexive? It's indirect objects

    All reflexives are etre, but where's the reflexive?

    eiwhfiudsfajilkdpsa I thought it was a reflexive! Like, they do something to me? I am sooo confused right now :eek: Qui m'ont aidé sounds right though, I'll probably just put that. One tiny mistake won't matter that much
