... concerning learning how to walk (for a baby)
I found this:
"Learning how to walk implies several stages" but it just doesn't sound right to me.
The following sentences describe these different stages.
thanks for your help, magical and efficient forum!

    Bonjour Lucythegat,

    > "Learning how to walk implies several stages" but it just doesn't sound right to me.

    Juste pour donner quelques autres moyens de le dire (qui te plairont peut-être plus) :
    - l'apprentissage de la marche requiert plusieurs étapes
    - savoir marcher demande plusieurs acquisitions préalables

    ah mais oui je ne sais pas pourquoi je n'arrivais même plus à reformuler la phrase en français.
    Je propose donc: "learning how to walk requires several stages"... Maybe a bit better?

    Are you looking for the French phrase or the English one? In the English one, it's the "implies" which is rather odd... It would be more natural to say "Learning how to walk involves several stages."

    yes I am translating into english. I do like "involve". Indeed my "implies" was bothering me.
    Thanks once again!
