Unisex Nouns

French unisex nouns
One of the first - and possibly worst - things French students learn is that all nouns have a gender, either masculine or feminine. The good news is more than 100 can be either - though they may tend toward one gender or the other.

Si Clauses: Third Conditional

French si clauses
The third conditional is an if-then proposition that expresses an impossible situation: if something had happened (the condition), then something else would have happened (the result). The condition is expressed with the past perfect, and the impossible result is indicated with the conditional perfect.
