WHAT WE DID (Rooms 203-204 French)

Topic: Qu’est-ce que tu aimes faire ?

Students were introduced to saying they like doing something, "aimer + verb in the infinitive" as well as they like something "aimer + noun"

a quick revision of conjugating the verb "aimer" in the present tense...AWESOME JOB!

a quick exercise on identifying nouns was given

a. les jeux vidéo
b. les bandes dessinées
c. aller à la pêche
d. regarder la télé
Exemple 1: J'aime Paris - I love Paris
Exemple 2 : Il aime les chats - He likes cats
Exemple 3 : Aimes-tu voyager ? Do you like to travel?

students created two columns where they were tasked in grouping each sentence to reflect if it was "aimer + noun" or "aimer + verb"

e. J’aime le skate
f. J’aime faire de la natation
g. Elle aime les animaux
h. Il aime jouer l’ordinateur
i. Tu aimes la musique ?
j. Nous aimons retrouver des amis.

NOTE: To say that you "like" or "are fond of" someone, qualify "aimer" with an adverb like:

• assez
• bien
• beaucoup

These adverbs make aimer less strong, so that it can be used with friends rather than family and lovers.

1. J'aime assez Paul.
I kind of like Paul.

2. J'aime bien Ana.
I like Ana.

3. J'aime beaucoup Étienne.
I really like Étienne.

4. Je t'aime bien.
I like you.

WHAT WE DID!
*Expressing likes and dislikes

i like = me gusta
i do not like = no me gusta

FOR SINGULAR NOUNS YOU USE "ME GUSTA" WHILE "NO ME GUSTAN IS USED FOR PLURAL NOUNS"

examples:
1. I like physical education = singular = me gusta la educacion fisica

2. i do not like spanish = singular = no me gusta el espanol

3. i do not like french = singular = no me gusta el frances

4. i like men/women = plural = me gustan los hombres/las mujeres

**if you are asked a question...the question is directed to you therefore the question asks "te gusta el helado (ice cream)?"

it then means you respond by saying "me" or "i".therefore your response will be "si, me gusta el helado"

example: "como te llamas?" you do not respond te llamas Shomar you are then responding your name is Shomar to the question What is your name. in fact, you want to be saying My name is Shomar which is equal to "ME LLAMO SHOMAR"

*SEATWORK*
Say whether you like or dislike these subjects:

1. las ciencias :)

French: Conjugating -er verbs in present tense

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGpUpaJztSA

[02/01/17]   ROOMS 103-104 (FRENCH)
WHAT WE DID!
*Introduction to -er verbs and how to conjugate them

vocabulary (-er verbs)
arriver - to arrive
dessiner - to draw
laver - to wash
reparer - to repair
preparer - to prepare
entrer - to enter
jouer - to play
travailler - to work
chercher - to look for
poser - to put

*to conjugate a verb you must first remove the -er ending.

example: REGARDER = REGARD

You are now left with the stem of the verb. next, you add the appropriate ending so that the verb corresponds with their subject.

example:
je regardE = I watch or I am watching
tu regardES = you watch or you are watching
il/elle regardE = he/she/it is watching or he/she/it is watching
nous regardONS = we watch or we are watching
vous regardEZ = you watch or you are watching
ils/elles regardENT = they watch or they are watching

*PRACTISE*
Conjugate the following:

1. laver 2. preparer 3. poser

*NB* the difference between 'tu' and 'vous'.

Tu is singular. It is used when you are speaking to one person who you are familiar with i.e. your friends and family

Vous is plural. It is used when you are addressing a group or more than one persons where you would say, in english, 'you all'. it is also considered polite and used when you are addressing persons in authority of you or total strangers i.e. teacher, minister, shopkeeper etc

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO!
*Practise conjugating -er verbs and memorise the endings for each subject pronoun.
