### Subject: French

Translate the following phrase: Salut, Marie! Est-ce que tu préfères la glace vanille ou la glace chocolate?

Translation: "Hello, Marie! Do you prefer vanilla ice cream or chocolate ice cream?" Key elements: pronoun 'tu', verb 'préfères', noun 'la glace', adjectives 'vanille' and 'chocolat'. The pronoun 'tu' means 'you', which in this case is Marie. The verb "préférer" means 'to prefer' and is conjugated as 'préfères' because it is a regular -er verb and in the tu form ends with -es. The noun 'la glace' is feminine and translates to 'ice cream'. The adjective 'vanilla' translates to 'vanilla' and the adjective 'chocolate' translates to chocolate. Because 'la glace' is feminine, 'chocolat' takes an e and becomes 'chocolate'.
