What is the answer?

Everybody who speaks French much more fluently than me seems to have a different answer for this...

OK, mathematically some of them have to agree, but what do you think?

Translate this from English to French...

"We miss you" ('you' being plural)

My three pennyworth: Vous nous manquez.

I always get in a muddle  things to do with 'miss', as it seems counter intuitive to me!




Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

It is a different way of saying it.  "You are lacking to us" and you already asked us Mel.   Cool [8-|]

or... "tu m'as manqué, Mel!" if it is appropriate to use passé composé rather than imparfait...Smile [:)]

or, if Mel and I are on more formal terms "vous m'avez manqué, Mel!"

This manquing business is always a tricky one.
