Et j'ai parlé de tâches ménagères
Rien ne résiste au quotidien

Quand il s'agit de se faire du bien

Notre amour a pris la poussière
Pas de coupable dans cette affaire
Prenons ensemble la serpillère
Et enterrons la hache de guerre

 Je n'ai pas envie de
J'irai diner avec toutes mes copines
Tu le sais bien je te fais pas un dessin
Car tes copains ben eux sont toujours là

 J'aurais dû te prévenir un peu plus tôt
Que tous mes potes venaient au studio
Pour boire ensemble un petit apéro
Fais pas la tête mon petit agneau

Et j'ai parlé de tâches ménagères
Rien ne résiste au quotidien

  1. À quelle heure est-ce que M. Rocque se lève le matin?
  2. Qu'est-ce qu'il mange pour le petit déjeuner?
  3. Comment va-t-il à l'école?
  4. Quelle période est-ce qu'il enseigne Français 3?
  5. Quelles activités est-ce qu'il fait avec sa famille?
  6. À quelle heure est-ce qu'il mange le dîner?
  7. Quand est-ce que M. Rocque se couche?

Now you should practice describing your daily routine in French.

Return to top






You need to practice describing where things are located. You also need to ask where things are. To do so is fairly simple in French.

Où est la télécommande ?

Où sont les crayons ?

You choose depending on whether the thing you are asking for is singular or plural.

To respond, you must also consider the gender of the item or use the items name itself.

(La télécommande) Elle est sur le canopé.

(Les crayons) Ils sont dans le bureau.

To do this correctly, you must understand the gender of nouns. Go to the following website to review this concept on the gender of nouns. Then, practice your dialogue.

Return to top




Likes & Dislikes + Noun and Verb


The key verbs here are adorer ('to love'), aimer ('to like'), préférer ('to prefer') and detester ('to hate').When expressing your likes and dislikes you will also be using the ne pas construction ('not').

j'adore le football
j'aime jouer au golf
j'aime le riz mais je préfère les pâtes
je n'aime pas le temps anglais
je déteste danser

Notice how you can use a noun (like le football) or a verb infinitive (like jouer) after the first verb aimer, détester etc. If it is a noun you use be sure to include the word for 'the', e.g. le football not just football.

The vocabulary you will most likely need when talking about things you love, like, dislike or hate are school subjects, sports and leisure activities, and food and drink.


In French, you can easily add richness to your sentences by adding some key conneting words such as parce que (because), mais (but), ou (or), and et (and). As you learn, push yourself to always include more content.

j'adore l'anglais parce que c'est intérressant
j'aime les maths parce que le prof est formidable
j'aime l'anglais, mais je préfère la biologie
je n'aime pas la technologie parce que c'est ennuyeux
je déteste le dessin parce que c'est nul

Changing subjects

Consider if you decided to talk about what other people like. This requires a new subject. In French, that means changing the verb too. Review the basics of regular verbs on the grammar page. Now practice writing out what you would say below.

Listen to the following presentation as an example for further practice. Notice how they discuss multiple topics (sports, likes/dislikes, free-time, favorite food/drinks, etc.), they expand and create longer sentences with detail, and they use different subjects as well. Try to incorporate similar things in your own presentation.

Here is a list of French student's examples of describing their rooms. Use these to find vocabulary or to try and say something that you want.

Assignment 4: Find out what the lifestyle is of a French teenager. You can do this by reading online blogs, talking to some French teens that you know that live here in Orem, or by asking your French penpal to tell you about it. Then do a journal entry in French where you describe what their life is like, their daily routines, the preferences, and any other interesting things about them and their family and where they live. Compare and contrast your lifestyle with theirs. What is the same and what is different?

Bonjour! Je m'appelle Tyler Miller et voici ma journée pour aujoud'hui. Je me suis levé à 6h 40.  J'ai mangé le petit déjeuner, des céréales froids avec du lait et le jus d'orange.  Puis, je me suis lavé et je me suis brossé les dents.  Je suis arrivé à l'école en autobus à 7h 45.  À 8h 00, j'ai eu les mathematiques.  À 9h 30, j'ai eu la musique.  À  10h 45 j'ai pris le déjeuner!  J'ai mangé un sandwich, une pomm, et des collations.  Puis, j'ai parlé avec mes amis.  À 11h 55, j'ai eu l'anglais.  À 1h 15 j'ai eu le français.  Après l'école, j'ai fait mes devoirs et ai joué avec mes amis.  J'ai mangé le dîner à 5h 30 avec ma famille.  Après le dîner j'ai joué de la guitare et ai regardé de la télévision. Je me suis couché à 9h 30. Et voila! Ma journée!

Plan d'EtageAssignment 8: Ma Maison Future - What kind of house do you dream of having some day? Here is your chance to think about it. Draw the floor plans for your dream house. You don't have to put everything in it, or even label everything. You do need to label the rooms in French (le salon, la cuisine, une chambre, etc.). Have fun with it.
