    Default Some grammar help?

    Hey guys. I've been looking over Japanese grammar pages for a bit and I came across this:

    日本語 が 好き でも フランス語 は きらい です。
    nihongo ga suki demo furansugo wa kirai desu.
    I like Japanese, but I hate French.


    I was wondering why it's "
    フランス語きらいです。" and not "フランス語きらいです。" Or is it just a typo or something?
    I'd appreciate the help.

    は in this construction is meant to show the contrast between the two parts of the sentence. I like Japanese but I hate French.

    The but is already apparent in the でも but the フランス語きらい just further imply the contrast between 好き and きらい

    I hope this was helpfull, this is how it's been tought to me
