salut tout le monde....
i need help in something....
i have few questions while i'm still learning french in French Rocket if any one knows the answer and how to explaine to me please tell me the answer of my questions ok.....

why we say ( du fromage ) and dont say du le fromage ???
while we say (de la confiture )....
both of them ends with a vowel and i know that the first is masculine and the second is femenine .....
is it because we can't use ( du) with the articles (le and la)?????
please any help and i will be thankfull

du is the contraction of de + le (masc) so we don't need the extra le after du.
de + la (fem) doesn't contract so it just stays "de la"

Bonjour tout le monde!

Merci à vous tous! Vous n'avez même pas besoin de mon aide. Vous êtes en train d'apprendre le français en discutant entre vous même et c'est merveillieux!. - Thank you to all of you! You don't even need my help. You are learning French by talking amongst yourselves and it is wonderful!

Aur revoir,

- Marie-Claire
