Unformatted text preview: Nous avons mangé une tarte. We ate a pie. Nous n'avons pas mangé de tarte. We did not eat a pie/ We did not eat any pie. Nous avons mangé de la tarte. We ate some pie. Nous n'avons pas mangé de tarte. We did not eat some pie/ We did not eat any pie. Note : Now you should understand better how that "Quoi de neuf?"(what's new?) encountered in the very first lesson was constructed... "Quoi de plus beau?!" (what is there prettier?) G: En To say 'some of it' without specifying the exact object, the pronoun 'en' can be used. Additionally, 'en' can mean 'of it' when 'it' is not specified. For instance, instead of saying J'ai besoin d'argent, if the idea of money has already been raised, it can be stated as 'J'en ai besoin'. This is because en replaces du, de la or des when there the noun is not specifically mentioned in that sentence. Like with 'me', 'te' and other pronouns, en (meaning 'some') comes before the verb. Tu joues du piano? Non, je n'en joue pas Do you play piano? No, I don't play it. Vous prenez du poisson? Oui, j'en prends. Are you having fish? Yes, I'm having some. Vous avez commandé de l'eau? Oui, nous en avons commandé. Did you order some water? Yes, we ordered some.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
