    the correct way would be "de l'après-midi". You use the de + l'___ form because the word begins with a vowell. For example "the shell of the snail" would be "la coquille de l'escargot", whereas "the door to the castle" is "la porte du château".

    To clarify, you can also say "la plupart d'après-midi". This would be the most correct.

    Although saying "la plupart d'après-midi" would get your point across, omitting the article (le/la/l'__) is not at all the correct form and shouldn't be used outside of informal speech.

    What do you mean ? "most of afternoons" ? If it is, the answer is ; "la plupart des après-midis" ex : la plupart des après-midis, je ne travaille pas, donc je suis libre pour faire un gateau presque chaque après-midi. I don't work most of afternoons, so I'm free to do a cake alsmot every afternoon. In french ; "la plupart d'après-midi" means nothing. We don't say that. (Oup's I'm caught red-handed). If however you want to say : "much of the afternoon" The answer is : "une bonne partie de l'après-midi" I am not free in much of the afternoon, so do it without me. Je ne suis pas libre pour une grande partie de l'après-midi, donc fait ça sans moi.

    J'ai honte que j'ai négligé le fait que la phrase en question n'a aucun sens!! Vous avez raison, j'étais préoccupé par le débat entre "du" et "de la" et je n'ai pas remarqué du tout. Mais n'est-ce pas que j'avais quand même raison que l'on voudrait dire "de la" (si la phrase a du sens, bien sûr! haha)

    Tout le monde ! It's "le" not "la". We use "la" for feminine word, here "monde" is masculine word. There's maybe a rule about this, but even us, we make kind of mistack.

    I don't know if you're a girl or not, but be careful with the verb "être". If you're a girl : "je suis désolée", if you're a man : "Je suis désolé". And to correct your sentence : "Je suis désolé(e), j'ai vu le dernier "e" et j'ai pensé qu'il était féminin". Voilà.

    It's "féminin" and not "féminine" because, "monde" is a word ("mot") and "mot" is a masculine word.
