INTERMEDIATE. LESSON #14. LES PETITES ANNONCES3

- Quel loyer pourrait-on payer ?
- Je pense qu’il ne faudrait pas dépasser 1000 €. On pourrait peut-être aller jusqu’à 1100 €.
- Alors il ne reste plus beaucoup de choix, même en passant par une agence.
- Sur le magazine, il en reste trois. Le premier est à 1030 €, le second 1070 et le troisième 1085.
- Nous appelons ?
- Si je n’avais pas peur de déranger j’appellerais mais il est un peu tard. Appelons demain.
TRANSLATION
- What rent could we afford ?
- I think it would be better not to go higher than 1000 €. We could maybe say 1100 € but not more.
- So, there’s not a lot a choice left, even if we go through real estate office.
- On the classified, there’s three left. The first one is 1030 €, the second one is 1070 € and the third one is 1085 €.
- Are we calling ?
- If I wasn’t afraid to disturb, I would but it’s a little late. Let’s call tomorrow.
Agence immobilière (fém.) : real estate office.
Appeler (au téléphone), téléphoner : to call.
Déranger, troubler : to disturb.
In this lesson, we have again conditional forms
pourrait-on, il ne faudrait pas, j’appellerais.
Nothing new about that. Just get used to these forms.

Let’s continue to count.

Cent onze

Trois cents

900

Neuf cents


Attention ! When the word cent is followed by a number as in 201, it takes no –s at the end. That’s why we write : deux cents but deux cent un.

You can now count to 1000 which is mille.

In this lesson, we have different numbers. Let’s read them together :
1100 is mille cent.
1030 is mille trente
1070 is mille soixante-dix
1085 is mille quatre-vingt-cinq.
Translate in French :
1. 122
2. 856
3. 534
4. 999
5. 1072
