Grammar

French3, Session 17: In "Match the Phrases", the translation of "I ate too many chocolates in December" is given as "J'ai trop mangé de chocolats en décembre". However, later in the "Repeat the Phrase" there is this phrase: "Mon estomac me fait un peu mal, j’ai mangé trop de chocolats". Does this mean that "trop" can be either before or after "mangé"? Thank you!

French 3, Session 17: the dialogue and the tutorial explain that there is no article in front of date if you are speaking about today's date ("On est jeudi onze février.". Then, in the "Write the phrase you read" the correct answer to "Today’s March twenty-first" is given as "Aujourd’hui, on est le vingt et un mars". Could you please clarify how to reconcile these two examples? Thanks!

Experiences with French

Je viens de finir tous les cinq niveaux de Fluenz French. J'ai commence le programme quelques fois mais je ne l'ai jamais fait a la fin avant. My keyboard doesn't allow for accent marks, so I'm switching to English so you won't think I don't know how to spell properly. :-) I've had the program for years and have tried to get through it all a few times, but I never made it past half-way through Level 3. This time I started over with Level 1 in January and committed to doing one level per month. Today, June 12, I finished Level 5! I'm so happy, and I truly appreciate Fluenz - and especially Caroline, who did a wonderful job in the tutorials. I wish you could see the stack of flash cards I made while watching her tutorials. It's 8 inches high! I'll use them over and over to reinforce my learning. Now I know I must do as she says and find other ways to keep advancing my knowledge of French. Movies, a language buddy, Internet news, trips to France and/or Canada? All of the above? Thank you, Fluenz! Thank you, Caroline!!!

As I near the end of Fluenz French 5, I've been thinking about how and where to continue my studies. I wish there was a Fluenz French 6,7,8... but since there isn't, it seems like French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) might be a good choice. I'm curious if anyone who has gone that route could tell me what level of FIAF classes would someone who has successfully completed Fluenz French 5 be best suited for? All suggestions are welcome. Merci!

Carolyn Janin speaks of French music artists in French-1, session 6, the conclusion. Could someone list them.

Session by Session

I have an issue, I don't think the instructor is correct in presenting the options when forming questions. She states there is "only one way," but I don't believe that is correct. For example, for the question, "How is she?" the instructor gives, "Comment elle va?" HOWEVER, it is just as common to say, "Comment va-t-elle?" Also, instead of saying, "Je peux partir demain?" as a a question: "Can I leave tomorrow," it is just as common to say, "Puis-je partir demain?" You can invert pronoun and verb (they call it "Inversion"). I think maybe she's trying to keep it simple, by not overloading us to soon, but it is misleading to say there is only one way to form questions with pronouns. btw... I'm using this course as a review so I've had this material before.
