SLOW DIALOGUE

TRANSLATION
- My name is Suzanne.
I live in Paris.
I like books and jewellery.
I’m four and I go at school.
My teacher is very nice.
My father is a little silly sometimes but I like him very much.
Most of French nouns take a –s at plural : Un livre / des livres.
But there are some exceptions. Such as bijou whose plural form is bijoux with a –x. We’ll see about that later.

Gentille is a feminine adjective. With a masculine noun, it'll become gentil.
Ma maîtresse est très gentille
Le garçon est très gentil.
Habiter : To live.
Livre (masc.) : book.
Bijoux (masc. plur.) : jewel, the jewellery.
École (fém.) : school.
Maîtresse (fém.) : primary school teacher.
Très : very.
Gentil, gentille : nice, sweet.
Père : father.
Bête : silly.
In French, we have different ways to translate my. The possessive determinants must agree in gender and number with the noun they modify :

1. With a masculine and singular noun, we’ll use : mon.
     Mon père
2. With a feminine and singular noun, we’ll use : ma.
     Ma maîtresse
Translate in French :
1. Your name is Laure. You live in Lyon.
2. My father like books.
3. My daughter is nine.
4. My son is small.
5. My book is interesting.

Intéressant, intéressante : interesting

Translate in English :
1. Suzanne habite à Paris.
2. Ma maîtresse est très intelligente.
3. Tu t’appelles Victor.
4. Mon père est très grand.


What about you ? Where do you live ?
Et vous ? Où habitez-vous ?
