Hi and thanks in advance for reading this. For example: "L’étencil est un objet en papier qui nous aide à empêcher les vagues de cervelles des autres personnes de ENTERING l'appareil." I know that for present tense, I could easily say "I enter" or "I am entering" (J'entre), but I am not sure if that tense will work here. If that tense would work, my sentence would be: L’étencil est un objet en papier qui nous aide à empêcher les vagues de cervelles des autres personnes d'entre l'appareil. In english, I want my sentence to be saying "This (tinsel??) is an object made of paper which helps us to prevent other people's brain waves from entering the/this device." (I know it's a weird sentence, don't bother asking..) Also, "L’étencil" is a word I was given, but I cannot seem to find it in the dictionary. I am looking to find a word meaning something like "tinsel", has anyone ever heard of "L’étencil"?? Or would I be better off using "le clinquant"?? Thank you for your help.
