hi,

i was just wondering how you would say 'history shows that' in french: would it be 'l'histoire demontre que...'?

merci!

    Your sentence is correct but, depending on the rest of the sentence, we might use another verb to translate "to show".

    Thanks... I'm trying to say that history shows that nuclear energy is dangerous:

    'l'histoire demontre que l'énergie nucléaire est dangereuse'?

    I think that a literal translation would be just as good : "L'histoire montre que..."
