The sentences throwing off my understanding are: 1) There is a very beautiful plaza next to the hotel. In the lesson, it's "Il y a une place tres belle a cote de l'hotel." Would it be correct to also structure it as "Il y une tres belle place a cote de l'hotel"? 2) We went (there) for work: In the lesson it's "Nous y sommes alles pour le travail.". Would I be correct in saying it this way as well: "Nous sommes y alles pour le travail"?

Bonjour! It looks like there is a typo in Upgraded French 1 Session 4 in Choose the right answer. The question was "Pour lui, un jus d’orange, s¡il vous plaît." There is an upside down exclamation point instead of an apostrophe in "s'il vous plaît"

I have downloaded the Upgraded French audio files, but can someone tell me which ones are supposed to be "upgraded"? So far, I've checked the Upgraded French pronunciation files for Levels 1-3. Levels 1 and 2 seem new -- it's Caroline's voice. But Level 3 sounds like the audio files I've always had -- not Caroline but Sonia. At least that is what I hear in the first minute.

Hi, when the character speaks the above sentence it sounds like there is an additional sound or syllable between carte and de, sort of like "carte du de credit". Is this how it is pronounced and if so, is there a name for it, or is this an artifact of the editing? I've heard this in a few other places as well. I did not hear the extra sound when Caroline went through the tutorial section. I do hear the extra sound on Google translate of "the credit card." Am I hearing sounds that aren't there? Thank you

Hello, I am really enjoying the upgraded French Fluenz! Thank you :). I noticed that in French 1 Lesson 18 in the workout titled Repeat the Words, the French word Onze is displayed but when the play button is pressed for pronunciation, Désolée is heard. Also in the same lesson but later in the workout titled Write the Words You Hear, there are two désolé 's - one désolé (m) and the other désolée (f). The second désolée is pronounced correctly but when either désolé(e) is typed, neither answer is accepted as correct. When the answer button is chosen to reveal the correct answer, Onze appears. Thank you again for helping me to learn French and I am looking forward to future lessons!

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.

A lot of the answers (i.e., when you drag the French sentence over to the English translation) in the first "Match the Words" in French 5, Session 15, are mixed up. To proceed, you have to just try each possibility.

Do some of the French Upgraded lessons not have a tutorial video or am I missing something. Example: French Upgraded Level 1 Session 10 does not have one for me. I’m using the app on iPhone if that makes a difference. Thanks.

I’m having a difficult time telling the difference between emporter and prendre and when to use one over the other. Thanks!
