Please, how would you translate this in French?
Here is the sentence:
" the enjoyment of leisure time had spread beyond the upper class to a wider range of people"
Thank you
K.

    La jouissance du temps libre, although that sounds quite unnatural.
    For the whole sentence I would say:
    Ce ne sont plus seulement les classes supérieures de la société qui peuvent profiter de temps libre
    .
    or
    Ce n'étaient plus seulement les classes supérieures de la société qui pouvaient profiter de temps libre.

    Possible alternatives:
    jouir for profiter
    temps de loisir
    for temps libre
