How to Navigate this Site (for current French Students)

I am always tweaking this website and adding information.

If you look now at the top, your French class will have a link, and if you hover over it, the unit that we are currently studying will appear.

There will also be subsections with sometimes a specific grammar or vocab. section, for easier navigation.

Merci, et bonne chance- amusez-vous en apprenant le français!

Commercials Using French Randomly

In this episode of “Media Using French Randomly”, Mlle. C spotted a Loréal commercial randomly saying “Say Bonjour” to whatever beauty thing they’re marketing.

Fun (French) Foreign Language Learning Site

For a fun and comprehensive overview of basic French topics, I highly recommend this site: Languages Online – French section

It has a variety of fun language learning topics and methodologies.

It is broken into useful sections, each with activities ranging from fill-in-the-blank, to more fun games, and songs, to help you learn the set of vocab.

Give it a shot! Every level of French learner could benefit from learning some new words, or reviewing some old!!

 

 

La Mode – Another Random Sighting of French Word on American Clothing

“Le Français – C’est Toujours à La Mode”

The French are known for their class and style. I often see words in French on American clothing, from something common like “C’est la Vie”,  “Amour”, or “Bonjour” to less common phrases, this one was a new one for me.

If you have an extra $80 lying around, you could be a dreamer “Rêveur” too. (source) (Dans mes rêves!)

FIF FIN

French is Fun – Fin (The End/Last Lesson)

BSCS Students- I have had so much fun with you in our French classes! Merci for making it such a great experience for me, and I’m so glad you also had fun learning French!!

What Did We Learn?

Every week, we learned a bit of culture and a bit of language, and always sang a song or two! All sections went over basic vocabulary, like the French alphabet, numbers 1-20, and greetings.

The K-2 class focused on “Mon Alphabet” – their alphabet book. They also got a mini-lesson based on what the theme was that week. (Click here if you want to finish your alphabet book at home!)

The 3rd-5th and the Middle School classes learned a whole lot of French and culture, including:

Greetings, Paris, Sports, Family, a Student’s Life in France, Other French-speaking Countries, French Food, Animals, School Vocabulary, Clothes, Colors, Art, and more.

Here are some of our favorite songs from a website resource used in many classes:

Bonjour!                 Dix Petites Fleurs              Bonjour Madame

And other games and activities (a great site to explore for language-learning fun).

I hope you keep having fun learning French. Explore this site for more resources. À bientôt!

La Météo – The Weather

La Météo – The Weather

Did you know that they use Celsius (the metric system) instead of Fahrenheit with the weather in France?

To convert ºC to ºF, use this formula: C x 1.8 = 32 = F

For example, 0º C = 32º F     or       15º C = 59º F

Le Temps – The Weather



 

Quel temps fait-il?  “What’s the weather like?” or “How’s the weather?”

   –Il fait du soleil.   =    “It’s sunny.”
  -Il fait beau.  =          “It’s nice out.”
  -Il fait chaud.    =      “It’s hot.”
   -Il pleut.  =                “It’s raining”
   -Il fait mauvais.  =      “It’s yucky out.”
Il fait du vent.   =    “It’s windy.”
Il fait frais.     =     “It’s cool.”
-Il fait froid.   =         “It’s cold.”
Il y a des nuages.  =    “It’s cloudy.” (literally- there are clouds)
-Il neige.  =  It’s snowing.

Les Saisons    (seasons)         (“in” + season)

l’hiver (m)        en hiver                  (Winter)
l’été (m)          en été                    (Summer)
l’automne (m)     en automne             (Fall)
le printemps (m)   au printemps            (Spring)
