Prepositions in French!
Thank you to tesdefonceoutesgay for the help correcting it!
What I find most fascinating is how this is one tiny branch on this huge big mother tree.
Part 2 of some irregular French verbs that crop up quite often. ^^
In the passé composé, I’ve now included the aux verb it conjugates with, using the pronoun «je».
NOTE: the verbs «savoir» and «connaître» both have the meaning of the English equivalent “to know”…but the context and nuance is different between them.
I’ll cover their usage in a separate post =D
If I’ve made a typo/mistake, let me know ;)

this is the best freaking example of just how important tones are in the chinese language.
to most people, it just sounds like you’re saying “mama” over and over again.
but if you get the tones correct, it actually means ‘mother rode the horse, the horse was slow, so mother yelled at the horse.’
