- Pendant l’histoire de Noël, j’ai posé les cadeaux au pied du sapin.
- Les enfants seront fous de joie demain matin. Je vois que tu n’as pas oublié de poser des mandarines et des bonbons. Tiens, on dirait qu’il y a un cadeau pour moi.
- Ouvre-le maintenant.
- Alors ouvre ton cadeau aussi... Un bracelet. Il est magnifique. Il ira très bien avec mon collier.
- Une écharpe. Elle ira très bien avec… elle ira très bien tout court !
- Et embrasse-moi. Demain c’est Noël !
- During the Christmas story, I put the presents on the foot of the Christmas tree.
- The children will be crazy (overwhelmed) with joy tomorrow morning. I see that you didn’t forget to put some tangerines and some canddies. Eh, it seems like there’s a present for me.
- Open it now.
- So, you open yours too... A bracelet. It’s wonderful. It’ll fit so well with my necklace.
- A scarf. It’ll fit so well with… it’ll fit so well and that’s it.
- And kiss me. Tomorrow it’s Christmas Day.

- passé composé

On dirait qu’il y a un cadeau pour moi.
The verb dire is here conjugate at conditionnal mood. We’ll speak of that later.
For the time, just remember that expression that is often used as soon we’re not really sure of something.
Just look at the picture and answer this question :

Start each sentence by Je pense que dans le cadeau rose il y a…
