Do you know the right ways to say Hello or Good-bye in French? If you don’t, then you should learn as this form of politeness opens many doors. On the other hand, if you don’t know how to greet someone the right way, you’ll be labelled as the tourist who doesn’t make a single effort… And this is not good if you need any advice or help…
Most people think that French numbers are quite crazy to learn. In a way, I understand why. It seems odd to say eighty in French (quatre-vingt) which litterally means 4 times twenty!!
But no! We’re not that crazy! We don’t count in our head when we say numbers! Everything is about the methodology you use to learn French numbers. You need to go through 3 easy steps (or 4 if you want to write perfectly) to understand our way to count. Once you’ll understand, you’ll nerver forget.
If you want to date a French person, there are a few words and expressions you can learn. It’s always nice to be able to say “you are cute” or “I love your smile” (that’s actually what I said to my now husband the first time I met him…). That will make a big difference just before you try to get his or her phone number… Once you’ve got the words for dating someone, then you can move to the next step and free French lessons!
There are different ways to say thank you in French. It totally depend on the situation you’re in. Of course, “merci” is very standard. But if you want to add more emphasis, the thanks you’ll say to a friend will be different from the thanks you’ll say to a person you don’t know well, and totally different in writing as well.
Do you know what preposition you should use when you speak about a place you’re going TO? Are coming FROM? Or where you are now? I give you a tip now: if you’re talking about any city you’re going TO, the preposition will always be “à”. Je vais à Paris.
It’s common sense. If you want to teach French to your kids, you should sing and play. That’s how children learn best, simply because they are engaged and have a good time. What games are most effective for building vocabulary and sentence structure? Is there a logical order in playing games?
Some people say that it’s very difficult to conjugate French verbs. But it’s not! Did you know that 90% of the French verbs have a very easy and regular conjugation pattern? Even better news, when you speak, the pronunciation remains almost always the same. In other words, if you’re more interested in speaking rather than writing French, you should not worry about the different ways we write the same sounds…
