    I hope someone can clear this up. In this lesson Mark refers to an orange in the masculine, ie: ‘un orange’. Everywhere on the web -google translate etc- and a French acquaintance of mine assures me it’s ‘une orange’.

    Just a slip up or am I missing something?

    Great pods, btw. Merci!

    Now that I’ve reached lesson 26 I’ve noticed that as well. Anyways, it’s a great approach to French.

    You are right.
    Orange as a fruit is feminin & orange as a color is masculine
