Fashion Faux Pas de Lady Gaga

PRACTICE 3:

Lady Gage made some really poor fashion choices this week and other really good ones. Read the faux pas and answer the questions that follow about what she was wearing and what the fasionistas think of it.

Lundi: Lady Gaga a été aperçue a l’aéroport de Roissy. Elle portait un pantalon noir troué un petit haut blanc et une veste noire horrible. Aussi, elle portait des chaussures noires qui n'étaient pas trop mal.

Mardi: Ce jour-la, elle a été vue portant un pantalon noir assez à la mode et une veste jaune très bizarre. Ce n’était pas mal mais c’était un peu moche.

Mercredi: Elle était aux MTV Music Awards a Belfast. C’était une catastrophe. Elle portait un pantalon noir assez large avec un tee-shirt blanc qui était très sale. Aussi, elle portait une veste noire assez chic mais trop grande pour elle.

Jeudi: Elle était a New York pour signer des disques chez Barney’s. Elle était très branchée. Elle portait une robe rouge (en viande !) avec un chapeau, un sac et des chaussures assortis. C’était très chic !

Vendredi: En sortant de son studio de danse, elle portait une robe rayée noire et jaune, assez démodée avec des lunettes de soleil noires. C’était horrible!

Samedi: Elle est allée dans un nightclub de Paris avec ses     copines. Elle  portait une longue robe noire avec  un chapeau noir aussi. C’était assez  classique.

Conversations

PRACTICE 6:

You will have to do two different conversations in this unit to review. Please read the following for practice and then I suggest you create dialogues of your own to review and practice this material.

Conversation 1 - Describing yourself and your family.

Marc: Je m'appelle Marc. Et toi?
Isabelle: Moi, je m'appelle Isabelle.
Marc: Comment est ta famille?
Isabelle: Bon, j'ai une petite famille. J'ai un frère seulement. Il s'appelle Stephan. Il a onze ans. Il est assez gentil, mais parfois il dispute avec moi. Il est petit et aimable. Il a les yeux verts et les cheveux blonds et courts. Il aime jouer aux jeux-vidéos, surtout le Wii. Quand il ne fait pas ça, il est dans le jardin ou avec ses amis dans le quartier. Ils aiment jouer au foot. Comment es-tu Marc?
Marc: Eh bien, moi, j'ai treize ans. Je suis très actif. J'ai les yeux marron et les cheveux longs, bouclés et bruns. Je suis assez mince, mais c'est parce que je fais souvent du jogging. Je n'ai ni frères ni soeurs. Je suis fils unique. J'habite dans un joli quartier près des montagnes. Ma maison est petite, mais très confortable.
Isabelle: Il me semble que tu as l'air très gentil. Je suis contente de faire ta connaissance.
Marc: Moi aussi.

Notice: In this conversation you really ask only one question, but it is good to ask others as well to follow up or to encourage your partner to give you more information. Practice giving the information you would need as well as asking some of the questions here.

1-Comment est (nom)?
2-Comment s’appelle-t-il/elle?
3-Quel âge a-t-il/elle?
4-Quelle est sa nationalité?
5-D’où est-il/elle?
6-C’est quand son anniversaire?
7-Quel est son numéro de téléphone ?
8-Qu’est-ce qu’il/elle aime?
9-Où est-ce qu’il/elle habite ?
10-Qu’est-ce qu’il/elle n’aime pas?
11-Qu’est-ce qu’il/elle fait pour s’amuser ?

Two ways of getting into the topic would be to say: Comment est ta famille or Parle de ta famille.

Return to top

 

 

Conversation 2 - Exchanging personal information.

PRACTICE 7:

Pauline: Salut Thomas, ça va?
Thomas: Ah, moi, je vais plus ou moins bien. Et toi?
Pauline: Bien, merci. Écoute, je voulais t'inviter chez moi ce week-end pour célébrer mon anniversaire. Tu peux me dire ton numéro de téléphone ou ton mail?
Thomas: Absolument, je suis très content que tu voulais m'inviter. Mon numéro de téléphone est 62-02-83 et mon e-mail est thomas.lacoeur@gmail.com.
Pauline: Alors, je t'envois les infos, mais si tu ne les reçois pas, donne-moi un coup de téléphone d'accord! Mon mobile est 04-93-27.
Thomas: Parfait, merci. Est-ce que tu aimais l'école aujourd'hui?
Pauline : Pas vraiment. J'avais un examen en anglais. Le prof est super stricte. Je déteste ça. Mais, heureusement Jean s'assied à côté de moi et nous avons rigolé pendant le cours. Sinon, je m'ennuyerais complètement. Tu avais quoi aujoud'hui?
Thomas: Moi, j'avais les maths et géo. C'était bien. J'ai maths avec Matthieu et Frédéric. Ils sont tellement drôles. Le prof est super stricte aussi. On n'a pas d'examen dans son cours, seulement beaucoup de devoirs, mais ils sont assez faciles.
Pauline: Tu as de la chance. Heureusement c'est presque le week-end!
Thomas: Oui et c'est ton anniversaire. On va s'amuser parfaitement hein?. Alors, à ce week-end!
Pauline: Oui, salut.

In this conversation they discussed several topics. You should be able to ask about someone's name, age, nationality, their friends, their classes, or family, their likes and dislikes. You could even plan to get together sometime and do something.

Practice asking these questions and figure out how you would answer them in French.

1- Comment ça va?
2-Quel âge as-tu?
3-Tu es de quelle nationalité?
4-D’où viens-tu?
5-Comment t’appelles-tu?
6-C ‘est quand ton anniversaire?
7-Quel est votre numéro de téléphone ?
8-Ça s’écrit comment?
9-Qu’est-ce que tu aimes faire pendant ton temps libre?
10-Qu’est-ce que tu n’aimes pas faire?
11-Que fais-tu pendant ton temps libre?
12-Que penses-tu de l'école?

Using the correct verb: avoir ou être.

PRACTICE 9:

The verb "avoir" means "to have" and "être" means "to be". In French there are certain cases where you will use avoir instead of être. Here are some examples:

J'ai 30 ans. Literally I have 30 years. In other words, I am 30.

J'ai soif. Literally I have thirst. In other words, I am thirsty.

J'ai froid/chaud. Literally I have cold/hot. In other words, I am cold or hot.

J'ai raison/tort. Literally I have reason/fault. In other words, I am right or wrong.

To describe your hair or eye color you will most likely use avoir:

J'ai les cheveux longs et blonds et les yeux bleu-clairs. I have long blonde hair and light-blue eyes.

However, you can use être as well:

Mes cheveux sont longs et blonds et mes yeux sont bleu-clairs. My hairs are long and blonde and my eyes are light-blue.

Note: you have to use the possessives (my) and the plural form (are) if you do it this way.

You can also use être to say you are blonde, brunette, or a red-head.

Je suis blond(e), brun(e), ou roux(rousse).

 

ÊTRE

Je suis
Tu es
Il / Elle est
Nous sommes
Vous Ètes
Ils / Elles sont

AVOIR

J’ ai
Tu as
Il / Elle a
Nous avons
Vous avez
Ils / Elles ont

Here is a great online practice for you to see if you understand which verb to use when.

Listening about School

PRACTICE 10:

school pictureHere is a great school article that would give you an idea what it would be like to go to school in France.

Here is an important link to school information. Here you can practice reading and listening comprehension.

http://web.cortland.edu/flteach/civ/ecoles/ecoles.htm

Present or Past Listening

As part of the listening quiz, you need to be able to tell if the descriptions are in the present tense or the past tense. Two strategies for this are 1) Listen to the verb endings, and 2) Listen for expressions.

Here are some past tense expressions:

  • Avant-hier
  • Hier (soir / matin / après-midi)
  • L'année passée / L'année dernière
  • L'été / L'hiver passé
  • Une fois
  • L'autre jour
