    I watch Moroccan channels, sometimes Algerian and Tunisian, Al Jazeera when my dad took over the remote controle LOL, and Melody Hits, Rotana and Nojoom also... All the rest, not that much.

    TOUS = ALL
    J'ai envie de voir tous les animaux... et mon copain aussi, sans doute! = I want to see all the animals... and my friend too, probably!


    May I ask where do you get all these phrases from?

    Hahaha, must I add that I'm an American? Don't mean to scare away the fishies here...

    Mavi and Viva, as you may know, I've had lots of experience already teaching and/or tutoring dumb and stubborn students, and you two are neither so no worries, you're in good hands between Faz and me

    and Avoss, if she's around

    Loool but I'm a New Yorker xD

    I have lived in America my whole life, so that's that although it's true I don't really think of myself as American.. In fact, no one in this country does! You ask the multiethnic country of France where they're from, and the Algerians, Italians, British, and Spanish will tell you French. But in the US, you ask someone whose family has been here for a century, and they will reply that they're Irish or Italian or German...!! It's interesting.

    Anyways, sorry to get off-topic, but Noor, would you please do me a favour and vote in the Photo contest?

    French endings... Masculine ends in a consonant or o... and feminine ends with an e. There are exceptions... Especially when something that looks masculine is feminine, or vice versa, when one word is actually an abbreviation for something else longer... Photo looks masculine but is short for photographe, so it's LA photo
