After the test, we continued practicing pronouns and the verb ser, by doing the exercises in the book, and going over them.
Next week the quiz on Monday will be on the subject pronouns and the verb être,. and the test section on Tuesday will be on the same thing. Students need to know which pronoun is used to replace a noun or a person's name, and what form of the verb ser needs to be used.
Talking about someone:
John = he = il
Mary = she = elle
John and Mary = they = ils
Mary and Anner = they (feminine) = elles
Mary and I = we = nous
Mary and you = vous
Talking to someone:
John = you = tu
Marie = you = tu
John and Marie = you = vous
Monsieur Gérard = vous
If it is a conversation, and someone is speaking about themselves, you would use I = je.
Bonjour. Je m'appelle Marie. Je suis étudiante.
Be very careful about conversations, because the pronouns will change as they talk about either themselves or others around them. Always look at the pronoun that is right before the blank, or sometimes after the blank if is a question.
The verb être
Ser = To be
Je suis = I am Nous sommes = We are
Tú es (familiar) = You are Vous êtes (singular formal;plural formal and
familiar) = You are
Il est = He is Ils sont (boys only or boys and girls)= They are
Elle est = She is Elles sont (only girls) = They are
