      You use ‘Un peu mange ici?’ to mean ‘Is it possible to eat here?’ – but how can that be right when the phrase for ‘I speak a little French’ is ‘Je parle un peu Français?’ Un peu means a little.

      I thought you said we’d be learning genuine French here

        That would be because “on peut manger ici” is completely different from “un peu”. “Peut” comes from the verb “pouvoir” and means “can” as in “can one eat here?” whereas the unrelated word “peu” means “a little”. You are indeed learning genuine French here…

          Ah this is where being able to easily afford to buy the premium content would have helped me :). I checked what you said and, as you know, you are correct. Thanks.

      I’ve noticed that with the word ‘vin’ the ‘n’ isn’t pronounced, but with the word ‘vingt’ the ‘n’ is pronounced and that also helps me to tell the difference apart from the context of the conversation.
