We began a new unit, and we will now be going much faster in French, as we have to keep up with the high school, and we have to cover the same chapters.
Students learned how to say "the" in French and if they like something or do not like something.
In French all nouns are either masculine or feminine. This has nothing to do with who is using the object.
Masculine words have "le" in front of them and feminine nouns have "la" in front of them. The plural form for both masculine and feminine is "les"
Eg. Le livre = the book Les livres = the books
La porte = the door. Les portes = the doors
You use l' if the noun begins with a vowel
eg L'école = the school Les écoles = the schools
There is no rule for what makes something masculine or feminine. The "le" or "la" needs to be memorized as you learn new words.
J'aime = I like
Je n'aime pas = I don't like
You place "ne" and "pas" around a verb to make it negative
Tu aimes... = Do you like...?
Je = I
When you place it in front of a verb that begins with a vowel, you need to use the contraction J' + verb
eg J'aime instead of Je aime
Tu = You (when talking to a friend or family. It is the informal form of you.
Vous = You when you want to be polite, respectful or talking to a large group of people.
To make a verb negative, you put "ne" and "pas" around the verb.
Je n'aime pas. = I don't like.
