Bonjour Pei et merci pour votre message.


On parle toujours des crêpes au pluriel. Il faut donc dire: j'adore les crêpes.

Effectivement c'est très bon ! 😄

Je vous en prie Carlos !


Et oui malheureusement, les mots masculins et féminins ne sont pas les même en Espagnol ! Quel dommage pour nous tous ! 😅 Ce serait beaucoup plus pratique.


Bonne journée
