3 MOST COMMON NEGATIVES ARE Ne ….pas – not Ne …jamais – never Ne …personne – nobody Ne …plus – anymore Ne …rien – nothing

4 HOW TO DO IT The negative form of a verb is usually achieved by placing « ne » immediatey before the verb and the second part of the negative after the verb.

5 EXAMPLE Elle ne parle pas français First part of the negation Second part of the negation VERB

6 With me so far?!!

7 MORE EXAMPLES I dont receive pocket money Je ne reçois pas dargent de poche I have nothing to do Je nai rien à faire My parents never understand Mes parents ne comprennent jamais

8 Ready to have a go?

9 EXERCISE (Do one sentence at a time) I dont have a part-time job anymore Je nai plus de petit boulot I dont earn any money Je ne gagne pas dargent I never go out during the week Je ne sors jamais pendant la semaine I never do anything in school Je ne fais rien à lécole

10 THINGS TO WATCH OUT FOR You didnt really think it would be that easy?!!

11 COMPOUND VERBS (verbs made up of 2 parts) When the verb is made up of 2 parts, the second element of the negation is usually placed after the first part of the verb.

12 EXAMPLE Je nai rien fait Second part of the negation first part of the verb Second part of the verb First part of the negation

13 MORE EXAMPLES I didnt go on holiday with my parents Je ne suis pas allé en vacances avec mes parents. Ive never smoked Je nai jamais fumé I dont want to work anymore Je ne veux plus travailler

14 COMPOUND VERBS (verbs made up of 2 parts) Theres one exception to this rule! ne … personne In this case, « personne » goes after the second part of the verb. Eg: Ils nont vu personne

15 JAMAIS/PESONNE/RIEN « Jamais », « personne » and « rien » can be used on their own. Eg: - Quest-ce que tu prends au petit déjeuner? - Rien

16 PERSONNE / RIEN « personne » and « rien » may also be subjects and will need to be placed at the begining of the sentence. Watch out! « ne » is still required! Eg: Personne ne le connaît Rien ne me plaît

17 Got it? Well done!

18 EXERCISE TO RECAP (answers on the next slide) Nobody knows where he is. They didnt hurry up. I havent finished my homework. She doesnt want to lend me her car. Our French teacher is never angry. You dont want to go anymore?
