Inviter : to invite.
Salon (masc.) : living-room.
Collier (masc.) : necklace.

C’est is a really useful expression. It’s used with a singular word. With plural words, correct form is ce sont. Though, in casual French, we often use c’est.

C’est
or Ce sont are expressions that we use to present someone or something. They are followed by a noun (or a pronoun).
C’est un cadeau. C’est du vin blanc.
Ce sont des chips.

C’est>
is also used to comment something . It’s followed by an adjective.
C’est gentil. C’est joli.

Ne mange pas
is the negative form of the imperative mood. We use the same two-part negative adverb ne…pas and we place it on both sides of the verb.
Ne (or n’) + verb at the imperative mood + pas + the end of the sentence

Translate in French :
1. It’s my living-room.
2. They are (those are) my parents.
3. It’s nice and polite.

Translate in English :
1. Mangez des chips.
2. C’est de la limonade.
3. Ce sont des bonbons verts.
