Asked 5 years ago. Like 0 Answer 4. Hi harris, The French verb "parler" can have two pieces of information attached to it: with whom you speak and what you speak of. You can now proceed to substitute pronouns for each of the two parts and it would go like this: Je lui en parle. If you speak about her then it is "d'elle".
Therefore it goes like this: Je te parle -- I speak with you. Je lui parle -- I speak with him or her; only context would tell. Je vous parle -- I speak with them or you; in a formal setting "Je l'en parle" is definitely incorrect. Greetings, -- Chris not a native speaker. Like 0 5 years ago. Like 0 9 months ago. Joan A1.

Therefore the phrase becomes Jean lui manque. I hope that this is useful and that I have answered and help clarify this for you. Bonne chance. Like 0 9 years ago. Thank you. That was exactly my understanding. However, in the A2 test that I took, the question said to translate, "She misses Jacques".
I wrote "Jacques elle manque. I thought there must be some special exception. I, you, he, we, they I hope this helps clarify this. Laura Kwiziq language super star. Bonjour Susan, In "She misses Jacques," the pronoun that replaces "she" is not a stress pronoun, it's an indirect object pronoun, and the feminine indirect object pronoun is the same as the masculine: lui.
Merci beaucoup!! I see now that it was my mistake in thinking that a stress pronoun was required in this structure. Susan asked: View original. David C1. Asked 10 years ago. Bonjour David, Alors, je ne comprends pas de tout en ce qui concerne votre question.
C'est bidon, cette phrase! Working out what is an acceptable rephrasing into English for such a long sentence is tough. I had "I would like to live in your shoes to be with you for each of your steps" , which while not perfectly fluent still gets the meaning of the sentence. Mais alors, pas de coeurs. It's too long, there are too many opportunities to stray from the accepted answer. Here's the trick: Copy the French silliness I mean sentence, do a Google search, it will come up with this page first and foremost. Bookmark the page and every time you get this sentence just go open a new tab and open your bookmark, copy the correct answer and paste it into the box.
No more worries. No more people getting the wrong answers, no more algorythm thinking we can't do this sentence and it won't keep showing up. If this doesn't work, then click your heels together three times and say, "Dear God, please turn me into a bird so I can fly far, far away. I think I do something similar but a bit more low tech I'm pretty sparing about this, after all the whole point is to learn the language, but sometimes you've just got to chalk things like this up to a glitch and come up with strategies to avoid a wrong answer.
I'm really amused by all the Duo users taking these sentences as serious advice. Chill, people, if you need pick up lines in the first place, reconsider your ways. This sentence needs to go. Not because it's corny, but because it's insane to hand a sentence this ridiculously long to people who are just starting to learn. I'm a reasonable amount past here and this is still considerably more than I'm ready for.
It reminds me of the "walk a mile in my, your, his, her, their, etc. For one thing, compared to most phrases in Duo, it's very long. Most phrases in Duo can be translated a couple, if not several, different ways, but not this one. So, it's not so much about learning how to communicate the intent of the phrase as it is about memorizing this exact phrase, which no-one would ever actually say.
Is anyone else missing words????? Hi, please use the button to report problems. The course creators don't read every comment to every sentence discussion, but they do get the reports. What does this mean? Does the speaker want to just spend time with the listener? Does the speaker want to understand the perspective of the listener?
Does the speaker just want to be close and intimate in life?
I am so confused. Is this a common phrase? The speaker wants to spend time with the listener, that's all. I think they should translate "step" into "footstep". It goes better with "shoes". But I don't know if it is good in English. We rarely use it, only the romantics during Valentine's Day do. But it works very well if you say you're an English speaker and you learnt this sentence by heart just for your French girlfriend. This is a genuine French sentence, and as such is unlikely to be removed from the course.
Several different sentence structures are accepted as English translations. If you split it into three sections it is not too daunting, i. There are probably other possibilities such as " Personally, I feel it should be left until later in the course, "Verbs - conditional'' would seem an ideal location. I don't like this sentence and I typed "I would like to live in your shoes and be with you every step of the way". It was marked wrong. I don't always translate something exactly the way they do.
They tend to be strict about the conjunctions. Saying you want to live in someone's shoes and be with them is logically different than saying you want to live in someone's shoes to be with them, even if they are both useless sentences no one would ever say. How is this not correct? I put : I want to live in your shoes so im with you every step of the way. That is the same thing. This is not the first time this has happened with sentences,but I never get feedback which would be welcomed.
Surely the goal should be to write good English as well as good French. Comments welcome. That sentences actually makes me laugh!! Can anyone explain why "I would love to live in your shoes so as to be with you in every one of your steps" is not accepted? I answered "I did like to live in your shoes to be with you each step" the Duolingo don't accepted the sentence, Why?!
