BEGINNER1. LESSON #30. WHAT DO I KNOW ?

Lesson 30 ! Congratulations !!!
Let’s sum up what we know at this point.

- You met the useful expressions c’est and ce sont.
- You know there are different ways to ask questions in French.

1. You can just put an interrogative mark at the end of the sentence. That’s the most casual way but the most used indeed. That’s the one you already can use easily.
Tu manges ?

2. You can invert the verb and the subject pronoun. You join them with an hyphen.
Manges-tu ?

3. You can use the expression est-ce que but we’ll explain you later how to use it.
Est-ce que tu manges ?

- You met the last subject pronoun : on.
- You know new determinants : du, de la, de l’ and des.

- You know there are three grammatical groups for the verbs.

- You know the verb vouloir which belongs to the troisième groupe and is an irregular verb which has its own way to conjugate.

- You learnt lots of words about food.

1. You know la fourchette, l’assiette, le couteau, le verre. Let’s learn know la cuillère (the spoon).

2. You know differents names of meals : le petit-déjeuner and le dîner. We say déjeuner for lunch. And we already saw that le goûter was quite important too !

3. And you know some food names (enough to begin !) because Jean, Marie, Victor and Suzanne spent a lot of time eating during these lessons.
