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.

Enchante should accept "charmed", which is more accurate than "Pleased to meet you".
+1
level 56
Jul 14, 2017
Enchante is more correct. Meaning "pleased to meet you chamred would be: "charmed I´m shure"

Seconded. I went for "charmed" first. Also, I tried "could be" or "possibly" for peut-etre but somehow didn't hit on "maybe."

I cannot imagine a man saying "charmed" in English, but « enchanté » is absolutely "pleased to meet you".

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.

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.

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".
