Chauffe-tête! Warm Up! Write your ANSWERS, not the question, in your notebook. 1.What are the three ways to say the word ‘the’ in French? (Hint, one is masculin, one is féminin, the last in pluriel) 2.What is a noun? How can you tell the gender of a noun? 3.What is a preposition?
Using the preposition « à » (How the word ‘to’ is used en français)
Talking about going places Let’s pretend you want to go somewhere with your friends and you want to tell your mère/père/grand-mère that you are leaving. You would say something like: « Hey! I am going to the ________ ! »
PLACES are NOUNS which have GENDER We know that all nouns in French have a gender of either masculin or féminin We also know that when a noun is in the plural form (meaning there is more than one of that noun) the gender isn’t easy to pinpoint. Luckily, definite articles can show us the gender and number of a noun
Definite articles can show us the gender and number of a noun Masculin (Singulière) Féminin (Singulière) Pluriel Le (l’)La (l’)Les
To + the + (noun for a place) 1.In French the word ‘to’ is the preposition à 2.You would then need the word ‘the’ to continue the phrase, and in French there are 3 ways to say the- le, la, les (and the l’ when the noun starts with a vowel) 3.After you put à and the form of the word ‘the’ you can state the name of the place to which one is going.
…it’s actually not that simple. Steps 1 and 2 can get complicated thanks to vowel sounds. If you can remember that vowels do not play well with others this can be easy!
