Bonjour Qianna,

No, reflective verbs are conjugated differently, so you'd say "je me suis douché(e)" "je me suis levé(e)", etc.

You can learn more about this here: https://www.frenchpod101.com/lesson/intermediate-lesson-19-you-cant-possibly-be-bored-in-france/


Bonne journée,

For the passé composé when using se doucher or se baigner and je, do you always keep the se before the verb? So it would be like je suis se douché or je suis se bainé?

Hello Amir,


That's a really good question ! The imparfait describes past situations, while the passé composé narrates specific events.

The imparfait is used for a description, a talk or an habit. The action is not finished : "Quand il était stressé, il faisait le ménage".(When he was stressed, he used to clean) => it's an habit


For the passé composé the action is finished :" A cause du stress, il a fait le ménage" (Due to stress, he cleaned).

He did it once, it is not an usual action.


I hope everything is clear ! If not, let me know !


Thank you for your comment

Hi

What is the difference between the imperfect tense and the past tense, or how do we distinguish between it?


coz in the lesson notes one can find it written:


Le bébé dormait sur la couvert ure.

"The baby slept on the blanket."


and


Le bébé a dormi sur la

couverture.

"The baby slept on the

blanket."


when to use domait and when to use dormi?

In Lesson Materials, file "L'homme se douche dans la douche." cannot play correct. I just heard around "L'homme se douche pense" and it finished. Please correct it for me.

Salut Eddie,


The video seems to be working fine. Can you please try playing it again, or downloading it before watching?

Another suggestion is to watch it using Google Chrome, since our videos work better with this browser.


Please let me know if that works, or if you have any further comment or question!

Hi Cristhian,

Is the video still not working for you?

If not, can you let us know what OS and browser you are using? Also, is it only this video, or every other video as well?


Please let us know more info when you can, thank you!
