We also looked at numbers. Students should now know how to count from 0 into the hundreds.
Chapter 3 test will be this Monday.
The midterm will be on Feb 10th and Feb 11th.
You will now have to know the higher numbers from 60 up. Higher numbers in French look very different from English, because there is no word for 70,80, and 90. They use a combination of other numbers and an addition or multiplication format to say the number.
60 soixante 61 soixante et un
70 soixante-dix (sixty ten) 71 = soixante et onze (sixty eleven)
80 quatre-vingts (four twenty 81 = quatre-vingts-un (four twenty one)
90 quatre-vingt-dix (four twenty ten) 91 = quatre-vingt-onze (four twenty eleven)
100 cent 101 = cent un
200 deux cents 201 = deux cent un
