Mistakes will always be made in French, and now you can learn from them.
Il n'y a pas du pain
Il n'y a pas de pain
One of the first things you learn about French vocabulary related to food is that you need to use partitive articles with it, as in je vais acheter du pain
(I'm going to buy some bread). You also learn that the partitive article changes to de
after a negation, but many French students forget that part. So "there is some bread" is il y a du pain
, but "there isn't any bread" is il n'y a pas de pain
, not "il n'y a pas du pain."
