Leisure Time Activities - Le Temps Libre


When given the choice, French people would rather have more free time than more money. For them, leisure time is an essential component of what they call la qualité de la vie (the quality of life). By law, they work only thirty-five hours per week and they have a minimum of five weeks of vacation per year.

Like their parents, French teenagers (les ados français) value their leisure time and try to make the most of it. What are their favorite activities? Here is what they do when they have a free evening.

Qu'est-ce que tu aimes faire le soir?



Je regarde la télé.



Je sors avec mes copains.



Je vais au cinéma.



Je lis.



Je vais au concert ou au théâtre.



Je vais danser.



Je fais du sport.



Je bricole. (Fix things around the house)




Regardez les photos et lisez les phrases qui décrivent ce que les jeunes aiment faire.

Faire du jogging

Michèle est très sportive. Elle fait souvent du jogging dans le parc de la ville.

Faire du skate

Thomas adore faire du skate. Le samedi, il va au skatepark avec ses copains.

la plage

À la martinique il fait beau tout le temps. À la plage, on fait du surfing ou de la planche à voile.

Faire du snowboard

En hiver, beaucoup de jeunes Français vont à la montagne avec leur famille ou leur école. Le snowboard -- ou le surf -- est un sport très populaire.

Okay, so here is how you should be able to communicate with your friends about your temps libre. Read through the dialogue to see if you understand and compare it to your conversations. Practice by writing your own conversation and discussing the topic in French with your friends.

François: Eh, salut Anne, comment tu te sens?
Anne: Moi, je me sens bien. Et qu'est-ce qui se passe avec toi François?
François: Bah, rien du tout! Je vais au skatepark avec Julie et Thomas.
Anne: Ah bon, tu fais souvent du skate?
François: Ça dépend! Je fais du snowboard en hiver et j'aime aussi faire de la natation.
Anne: Ça alors! Tu es très sportif! Moi, je ne fais jamais de sport.
François: Merci Anne. Alors toi, qu'est-ce que tu fais?
Anne: Ben, pas beaucoup. Je chante dans la chorale et je lis des livres.
François: Dis donc, c'est super!
Anne: C'est pas mal. En fait, c'est différent. Alors, qu'est-ce que tu fais ce samedi?
François: Oh là là, le fais les corvées. J'aide ma mè nettoie le range ma fais mes devoirs...c'est horrible!
Anne: Ça alors! Désolée. Tu n'as pas de chance!

Practice reading this conversation out loud. Now read it through with a partner, taking turns being François and Anne. Well, c'est tout (that's all).

Comment tu te sens?

Much of what we do is a question of how we feel at the time. Read the dialogues below to see how you can incorporate the question "comment tu te sens?" into your discussion about leisure time activities.

Philippe: Salut Jean-Luc, comment tu te sens?
Julie: J'ai soif.
Philippe: Que fais-tu alors?
Julie: Euh, je vais aller au café prendre un coca.
Philippe: Eh bien, je peux t'accompagner?
Julie: Ben, oui, allons-y!
Philippe: Super, partons!

Marie: Coucou Julie, comment tu te sens?
Henri: Moi, pas très bien.
Marie: Hein, pourquoi tu vas si mal? Qu'est-ce qui se passe?
Henri: Oh, ce n'est rien. Mes copines sont impolies.
Marie: Ah bon, alors, tu n'as pas de chance!
Henri: N'est-ce pas...mais ça va passer
Marie: Absolument. Tu as raison. Ça va passer.
Henri: Bon, à plus Marie!
Marie: Tchao Julie. Bisou!

Note: To add more avoir expressions, consider the following. There are many other feelings that you can have. Here are a few to learn:

  • avoir chaud - to feel warm
  • avoir froid - to feel cold
  • avoir faim - to feel hungry
  • avoir soif - to feel thirsty
  • avoir raison - to be right
  • avoir tort - to be wrong
  • avoir de la chance - to be lucky

For more information on forming questions, look at the grammar section.

Time frames

Tous les jours, chaque jour, le matin, l'après-midi, le soir, après ..., avant ..., tôt, tard, ce week-end


En été, en hiver, en automne, au printemps

As you continue to read and listen, work on building your vocabulary, and improving your French, you should be able to say much more. Work on adding extra details about the scene, who was there, what the weather was like, and more information about the events that took place. Move beyond just talking about your preferences, and work on including a large variety of verbs to tell the actions. Add descriptive words to explain how people looked, feel, and act.

Making comparisons involves either comparisons or superlatives. This is a fairly easy task in French. For a review, look at the following sites: Target language and UT Austin - Comparisons and Superlatives. Here are a few examples as they relate to sports.

Les Européens aiment le foot, le cyclisme et le tennis plus que les Américains.

Les Américains aiment le football américain, le baseball et le hockey plus que les Européens.

Le sport le plus populaire en France est le foot.

Le sport le plus populaire aux États-Unis est le football américain.

Les Français jouent au handball plus souvent que les Américains.

Les Amércains font du jogging plus souvent que les Français.
