    Great info, however, you pronounce と like “toe” in English.. ugh 🙂

      I was trying to emphasize it a little and I think I ended up overdoing it. Not that I have the best Japanese pronunciation to being with 🙂

      That’s why I’m sticking to grammar lessons for the time being.

    For, “I went to France, too” could you also say 「私もフランスへ行きました」 depending on the context?

    For example, if you went to Canada, and then you said you went to France you would say
    [フランスへも行きました」, but if your friend went to France and you also said how you went to France you would say 「私もフランスへ行きました」.

      Exactly, so 「私もフランスへ行きました」 would have a literal English translation of something like “I, also, went to France.”

      Good question, thanks for pointing it out!
