I am currently completing lesson 3.2. I have a couple concerns about the grammar used throughout the lesson.
1. Je suis perdu(e) (I am lost)
Why is the second verb 'conjugated'? Even then, it is not conjugated properly with 'Je'. The terms 'Je suis perdue' and 'Je suis perdu' are both used throughout the lesson.
2. à gauche & à droite vs. gauche & droite
Based on my experience, and the quiz question, à gauche & à droite means 'to the left' & 'to the right', respectfully. But, in the 'extra vocabulary' section, they are simply listed as 'left' & 'right'. Was this done in error?
3. J'ai perdu mon portefeuille & J'ai perdu mon hôtel
These terms appear to be using the past tense form of 'perdre' But, 'I have lost my wallet' and 'I have lost my hotel' sound to me in English, as if they are currently happening. Why is the passé composé used here instead of the present?
Any comments and clarifications are very much appreciated!
