    #1 The question was "What is his name", but you answered what are their names. #2 The text does not indicate Tintin's country of origin. So you need to do a research. You can also check the following link, under characterization. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tintin_(character) #3 In French, professions do not need articles, for example, ll est ingénieur, son père est docteur, ... #4 correct. #5 The prepositions in French, just like any other language, must be learned by usage/experience. If you're not sure, look up the dictionary for example, or in texts. Literal translations could get you in trouble. Aller à l'aventure (and not 'sur'), or aller aux aventures. By the way, if you intend to continue to learn the language, you may want to invest in a good French dictionary that gives you citations, examples, etc. and not a bilingual dictionary which generally give a straight translation of terms without the context. Le Petit Robert (on paper or a CD) is one of my favourites. Or, before you decide, you could start visiting either school or libraries to use dictionaries that give you examples. Reading simple readers would also get you started on the right foot. A lot of syntax and prepositions can be acquired from reading. You can also try read news (in French) online.

    Thank you! I'm actually taking a French course online since I do not have teachers here who speak French. It's rather hard for me since I don't actually have my teacher "here" to answer any questions I have and she usually responds within 24 hours rather than in an hour or two.
