I’m really looking forward to your answers to my little challenge. After a few contributions, I will post the answer to the quizz. Oh and by the way, you remember the question I asked you in the episode, I hope you chose “c’est une fille”! Don’t forget that with an article + noun, we use “c’est”, not “il est”. If you chose correctly, let me know in the comments too!

      Parfait ! Tout est correct. Par contre, dans le 2, oui Julien est un nom de personne mais on utilise “il est” parce qu’on a un nom sans article.
