      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
