Cool in French is used for someone 'calm'.
I heard 'il est cool or c'est cool' but I'm not sure about 'le cool'. Maybe it's Belgian. Let's ask 'Kabam' and 'Tabisora'.
Ah! Now that I think about it, this woman was speaking to me, and she said "cool" and I looked at her with a blank face, so she said, " 'le cool,' c'est anglais." So maybe she put the article because of the way she was telling me about the word being English in origin.
Chantal is right and so are you Clark. We say "c'est cool" or "cool!" or "il est cool".
"Le cool, c'est anglais" sounds very odd. I'd rather say "Cool, c'est anglais". We should ask Simon if the average Belgian'd speak like that.
Well, I always use “il est cool”. It sounds better to me, I guess.
I don't consider what you do is nit-picking. Thank you for your good job towards the learners. I appreciate your help.
I think exactly as "to Clark" does. Thank you Clark! Don't you remember what I said? The more severe you are towards my mistakes (or my culturally-incorrectness), the better. :)
Yes, I agree completely with both of “to Clark” and Kabam. It is not nitpicking. It is a good constructive criticism. All people need such thing to learn, I believe.
