Essential Question What vocabulary and grammar do the students need in order for them to communicate about content?
Content Objective Students will be able to greet and use polite expressions as well as ask and answer questions.
Greetings If you found yourself in the middle of Paris, how would you say hi to someone?
Greetings You could use the expressions: Bonjour! (meaning literally « good day ») Salut! (the informal hello)
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)
So, weve 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? (whats new)
In order to answer, you need to use the phrase Je vais.... Ça va Or 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)
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)
Lets put these to use Find 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.
CULTURAL NOTE Les bises The French greet one another in many cases by placing ones cheek next to another persons cheek and making a kissing sound
Now that weve greeted other people, lets 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 lheure (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)
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.
You can now say: Hello Ask how someone is doing Say how you are doing Say goodbye BUT you havent gotten the persons name yet!!! How rude (grossier is rude in French, for those who are curious)
Finding out a persons name How do you find a persons name in French? Use: Tu tappelles 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 tappelles-tu? (what is your name) Comment vous appellez-vous? (what is your (respect) name)
Take a clock sheet When 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 oclock, two oclock 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 dont have a partner for a number, go to the front of the room
HINT- You might want to write this down Numbers from one to twelve in French Un (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)
