In Lesson #8 of French 2, several constructions are presented with "pour" utilized in the sense of "in order to." This is similar to the use of "para" in Spanish. I don't recall this construction being addressed in any of the previous lessons, however. Some of the workout sentences threw me off because the presented sentences in English assume the "in order to" construction. Ex/ "She was here yesterday to speak with you." Trans: Elle a été ici hier POUR parler avec vous." I don't think Fluenz necessarily needs to designate the "in order to" in the English transcription, but it should at least be mentioned in the tutorial somewhere previous to this lesson. Just a suggestion!
