Agreed. Needs to be accepted, as both perhaps and maybe correspond to the French "peut-être"

Let's put this more directly. "Combien coûte-t-il ?" is slightly incorrect. You really should ask "Combien ça coûte ?" instead.

or just

combien ?

Level 73

"Combien" can also mean "How many".

Surely "How much does it cost?" or "How much does that cost?" should be accepted?

I don't know much French but I immediately knew Allons-y from Doctor Who. Who says TV isn't educational?

Enchante should accept "charmed", which is more accurate than "Pleased to meet you".
+1
Level 60
Jul 14, 2017
Enchante is more correct. Meaning "pleased to meet you

chamred would be: "charmed I´m shure"

+1
Level 48
Jul 14, 2017
Seconded. I went for "charmed" first. Also, I tried "could be" or "possibly" for peut-etre but somehow didn't hit on "maybe."
+1
Level 70
Jul 14, 2017
I cannot imagine a man saying "charmed" in English, but « enchanté » is absolutely "pleased to meet you".

It means "Enchanted", or "Charming", as in "It's charming to meet you".

Well, the title says "phrases". Is "charmed a phrase like "enchanté" can be in french?

Level 76

"What's new?" is accepted, but not "what is new?"

Know very little French, but got all but three. (It helps to have a familiarity with other romance languages)

3 of 20. :-(

Clearly I don't parlez vous Francais quite bon enough.

My best guess for "Je suis perdu" was "I am a chicken." Swing and a miss.

That would be "Je suis un poulet". Strange guess...

If anyone wants to know how to cheat this quiz, go to google and have it translate the page for you :D Instant 100% :P

To be serious though, it is a great quiz.

Why would you want to cheat? Isn't the object of taking the quiz to rest your knowledge and perhaps learn a thing or two? Cheating defeats that purpose somewhat, doesn't it?

Some of my research recently has involved French journals, so I've set my browser to automatically translate from French. I stared at the quiz for about 30 seconds trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing before it dawned on me what had happened.

judging by the comments in many, many comments sections, people don't see anything wrong with cheating... if i have one or two answers left, and no idea , even with 2 minutes spare i will give up...

Michael001 you are absolutely definitely wrong. Je t'aime means I love you. Just ask Serge Gainsbourg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3Fa4lOQfbA

sure I wrote how much does it cost, after how much is it. must ve done something wrong (missed a letter or something) And tried im cold, he's cold.... but not it's cold :/

besides that, never heard of the help, would think something like aidez-moi. with what 's new I tried how many brdiges? haha. with desole i tried desolated, sad and lost (funnily..) and with je suis perdu, as a guess, I am coming/going.

14/20 is not bad, but not great. Then again it never was a chosen subject in school for me and I dont speak a romance language. But still... it kinda bugs me wish i only had 4 wrong.but seeing the answers I wouldnt have gotten them (well the how much does it cost... if i had been typing properly..)

S'il vous plait is more literally "if you please". That should be one of the answers. That is part of RSVP -- Repondez s'il vous plait. It didn't occur to me to just put "please".
