2 Essential QuestionWhat vocabulary and grammar do the students need in order for them to communicate about content?
3 Content ObjectiveStudents will be able to greet and use polite expressions as well as ask and answer questions.
4 GreetingsIf you found yourself in the middle of Paris, how would you say hi to someone?
5 Greetings You could use the expressions: Bonjour! (meaning literally « good day »)Salut! (the informal hello)
6 You found someone special to say hi to. . . You can add to your greetings different titles.Bonjour Monsieur (mister)Salut Madame (madam/ mrs)Bonjour Madameoiselle (mrs, but to someone not yet married)
7 So, we’ve gotten through saying hi. . . Their next question may be:Ça va? (how are you)Comment ça va? (how are you)Comment allez-vous? (how are you)Quoi de neuf? (what’s new)
8 In order to answer, you need to use the phrase Je vaisÇa vaOr just an expression that shows how you are doing.______________________________________________If you want to say how someone else is doing, use the expression « il va ______ » or « elle va ______ »(he is or she is)
9 Expressions that show how you are doing Très bien (very well)Bien (well)Pas mal (not bad)Comme ci comme ça (not bad)Mal (badly)Très mal (very badly)
16 Let’s put these to useFind a sheet of scrap paper, fold it in to columns. In the first column, write one way to ask how someone is doing and a greeting. On the other, list from one to 7. After and not before the signal, stand up and ask 7 people how they are doing and write (in french) their responses.
17 CULTURAL NOTE Les bises The French greet one another in many cases by placing one’s cheek next to another person’s cheek and making a kissing sound
18 Now that we’ve greeted other people, let’s try to say goodbye There are several ways of saying goodbye:Au revoir (until we see each other again)À bientôt (until next time (soon))À tout à l’heure (if you are going to see the person in a few hours)À plus tard (if you are going to see the person later that day)Adieu (if you may never see the person again)Ciao (goodbye)À demain (until tomorrow)
19 Turn to the person to your right. Tell them goodbye one way. Then, turn to the person to your left. Tell them goodbye another way.
20 You can now say: Hello Ask how someone is doing Say how you are doing Say goodbyeBUT you haven’t gotten the person’s name yet!!! How rude(grossier is rude in French, for those who are curious)
21 Finding out a person’s name How do you find a person’s name in French?Use:Tu t’appelles comment? (what is your name)Quel est ton nom? (what is your name, very literal)Quel est ton prénom préférée? (what is your prefered name, its mostly found on applications and official documents)Comment t’appelles-tu? (what is your name)Comment vous appellez-vous? (what is your (respect) name)
22 Take a clock sheetWhen given the signal, each person needs to take the clock sheet and find a partner for each number on it.(you will have a one o’clock, two o’clock partner, etc)This must be done by introducing yourselves to the other members of the class in french and writing one name next to each number.If you don’t have a partner for a number, go to the front of the room
23 HINT- You might want to write this down Numbers from one to twelve in FrenchUn (uh)Deux (duh)Trois (twa)Quatre (cat ra)Cinq (sank)Six (seece)Sept (set)Huit (wheat)Neuf (nerf)Dix (deece)Onze (oh z)Douze (dooz)
