Discuss and learn French: French vocabulary, French grammar, French culture etc.
i just read this sentence:
mais je n'ai jamais eu à accepter les tarifs de misère offerts par certains.
in english, u could use the pronoun "some" in some circumstances w/o having referred to people prior. but i think it's more common in french. in this case, it doesn't refer to a specific group, but it's understood to mean "by some people."
