    hello,
    here is my phrase:
    A quoi sert de vivre libre

    how is this translated?

    and in

    A onze heure, il est parti and

    Il est parti á onze heures

    why is the a used differently? why not Á onze heure, il est parti?
    is there a particular reason for this or is it
    'just the way it is' in french?

    I think it's trying to say "What's the point in living freely?"

    *À

    It's because when it's a capital, it isn't always necessary to put the accent on. (You can do it if you want, but you don't have to) That's all.
