    They call him "a wise guy" or "wise guy".
    How do you say "house" or "a house" in French?
    How do you say "try" or "to try"... ?

    Re: Which one is correct?

    They call him a wise guy if that is what they think of him.
    They call him wise guy if they use that instead of his name.

    I don't speak French, but I think it's something like maison.

    If you're asking how to say try in French, I don't know. You already know how to say it in English.

    Thanks for the answer.

    As for the second and third sentences i`m not asking how to say the words "house" and "try" in French but if "a" and "to" should be used.

    If you only want to know the word, Njanja, then use 'house', 'dog' or any other word you want. But having said that, it depends on whether you actually want to know how to say 'a house' or 'to try'. If that was the case the you'd use whatever words you wanted translated.
