Definite Articles – pg 84 To refer to a specific person, place or thing, you use a definite article. The definite articles in French are listed below. They ALL mean the. –Le – comes before a masculine word beginning with a consonant sound. –La – before a feminine word w/ consonant sound. –L – used instead of the le or la before a word that begins with a vowel sound. –Les – the plural form of le, la and l.
Pronunciation of Definite Articles Le [luh] - rhymes with je La [lah] Les [lay] – rhymes with day, pay, ray, say! In spoken French, the sound of les is often the only indication that the noun is plural. Always be careful to distinguish between the different sounds.
Indefinite Articles Un and une are indefinite articles. –They mean a or an (or one when using as a number!) Des – the plural form – means some The great thing about articles in French is that they usually indicate the gender of the noun. –Je voudrais une salade et un jus dorange. Salade is feminine; jus is masculine.
des boissons (f.) un café = a coffee un coca = a Coke un coca light = a Diet Coke un jus de pomme = an apple juice un jus dorange = an orange juice un jus de raisin = a grape juice un jus de fruit = a fruit juice une limonade = a lemon-lime soda une eau minérale = a mineral water

des desserts (m.) une crêpe une glace au chocolat = chocolate ice cream une glace à la vanille = vanilla ice cream le chocolat la vanille la fraise
Je voudrais….. Je voudrais [voo dray] = I would like This is the POLITE way of saying I want.

Je voudrais un steak-frites et une limonade, sil vous plâit. = I would like a steak and fries and a lemon-lime soda please.
Donnez-moi…. Donnez-moi = Give me When ordering you speak formally to your serveur, hence the –ez (vous) ending to the verb donner, which means to give Ex. Donnez-moi un jus dorange sil vous plâit. = Give me an orange juice please.
