comment What is the difference in usage and nuance between content and heureux?
This raises an interesting question for me-- if one is referencing the oft-quoted line And they lived happily ever after, mais à l'orale et en français, ought it to be in passé simple since that's how it's usually written and thus how it would be recognized? Or is it switched to passé composé for such a verbal reference?

comment Is this the correct way to use “jusqu'à” ?
Jusqu'à is nearly always followed by a noun, and you're following it with a verb. So I don't think that's quite right! Grammatically you probably want jusqu'au début de la troisième, although a native speaker should check my math, so to speak, since I'm not sure if it's idiomatic for this sentence.

As far as I recall, Romain is from France and it is his first language.....but he doesn't visit Stack Exchange much anymore. Anyone else want to weigh in?

Oh, so it would be either, depending on context. Bien sûr. Merci.

By the way, why isn't it Je vous ai vus? Must not the past participle agree when a direct object proceeds it?

comment Kindly requesting a guide to the verb “Asseoir”
Also, hmm, you said "You can use both of them, independently of the chosen (old or modernized) spelling which only applies to the infinitive."....but then you separately wrote je m'assois and je m'asseois in two different places.
