SLOW DIALOGUE

TRANSLATION
At home :
- Suzanne, I take your doll, you take your doudou.
- Why ?
- We’re going at Grand-ma’s.
- Great !
- I’m taking your candies, too.
- My yellow candies ?
- Yes. Your lemon candies.
- Yummy !
A doudou is a Teddy bear or every other animal or even a blanket that the child drags around everywhere and sleeps with. No good translation known.
Maison (fém.) : home.
Prendre : to take.
Pourquoi : why.
Grand-mère (fém.) : grand-mother, grand-ma.
Génial : Great.
Bonbon (masc.) : sweet, candy.
Jaune : yellow.
Citron (masc.) : lemon.
Miam : yum, yummy.
We saw how to translate my with mon, ma or mes.

It works the same for your.
At the « tu form », we use :
- ton with a masculine and singular noun.
     ton doudou, ton bonbon
- ta with a feminine and singular noun.
     ta poupée, ta maîtresse
- tes with a plural noun
     tes bonbons, tes jouets
Translate in English :
1. Vous allez chez Grand-mère.
2. Tu prends ta poupée jaune.
3. J’aime les bonbons.

Translate in French :
1. I like lemon.
2. Here’s my doll.
3. Your grand-mother is short.


What about you ? Do you like candies too ?
Et vous ? Vous aimez les bonbons aussi ?
