Bonjour Aday ! Merci pour votre commentaire !


You are right, c + a = ç

But in this case, it's a capital letter so you don't have to put the cedilla.

To be clear : "ça me donne faim" or "Ça me donne faim" or "Ca me donne faim"

You have the choice ! :grin:


Bonne journée

Isn't there a mistake in "Ca a l'air délicieux!"? I thought it should be "Ça". :flushed: Please, could you confirm?
