[Course Forum] 5000 most common French words by Ciccero aka Chartalegna

Okay, I did that and found the word. And I’m fairly sure that there is a mistake in it, as the word is “une fin” meaning an end, and, if I remember correctly, it includes “fine” as one of the pronounced words. According to my research, “fine” means fine brandy or fine oysters, basically a high-class luxury. That has nothing to do with the word being learned. Is there a way that I can report this flashcard without having to wait until the next time that it comes up for review?

I have emailed Ciccero and invited them to the forum. Hopefully we’ll see him/her here soon :octopus:

There is a pronunciation error on level 6. “Tôt” is pronounced as “Tout.”

On level 5, both “un futur” and “un avenir,” both meaning “future,” are introduced. As far as I can see, they both have the same exact English description in the course; however, the French words are not accepted as interchangeable answers. There is no way to tell which word is required when “Future” shows up. It is a matter of guess work.

Hi @JoThelan, I still haven’t heard back… As it’s been well over a week now I double we’ll ever hear back from them :frowning:

You’re right, those are synonyms. I have implemented a fix.

Hi Ciccero! I sent you a private message regarding the changes I had made, but I can’t seem to find it anymore. Did you receive my message?
Edit: If you didn’t receive it, just let me know. I can recreate the message again for you.

@ciccero “Cependant” and “toutefois” have the same English definition of “however,” making it a guessing game in reviews as to which word is being asked for. “Cependant” is on level 4, and “toutefois” is on level 8.

Edit: Both also have the same part of speech description of “adv, conj,” so there are no hints whatsoever as to which word is required.

@ciccero Hi Ciccero! There is a problem with the flashcard, “une zone” on level 9. It is missing its audio file. :smiley_cat:

Edit: Also, I noticed while reviewing today that “alors,” level 1, and “puis,” level 3 also have the same definition “then, so” and part of speech “adv,” making the student have to guess which word is required as the answer.
