Habits 1







chaque jour
Every day

une télé
a tv

C’est lundi aujourd’hui.
It’s Monday today.

The ‘u’ in lundi seems to have an ‘uh’ sound.

Chaque matin ils regardent la télé.
Every morning they watch tv.

Lundi
Monday

Il regarde la télé.
He watches tv.

Remember: ends in e, feminine.

Trois jours
Three days

Deux jours
Two days

I was right, the ‘u’ in lundi is definitely an ‘uh’ sound.

il regarde la télé chaque jour.
He watches tv every day.

Jus
Juice

en
in (just like in spanish)

banque
Bank

lundi
Monday

Days in French aren’t capitalized, unless at the beginning of of a sentence, of course.

Sommeil
Sleep (noun)

Nouvel
New (seems like ‘novel’ almost. Meme: the new novel)

Demander
to ask for (sounds like demand)

Lentement
slowly (sounds like lement. Meme: slowly lement not going quickly; or another Meme: slowly lent a mint to my friend).

pour
for

Food 4

Cette pomme est bonne.
This apple is good.

Une banane
A banana

It occurs to me that the unaccented e sounds just like the a in Spanish. They achieve the same sound for feminine declension of articles. They both sound like ‘uh’!

Des fruits
fruits

Looks like ‘fruit’ comes from French —only in French the ‘i’ is pronounced and the ‘t’ is silent (including the plural s when added).

Le thé est très bon.
The tea is very good.

Très
Very

Have to remember that très means ‘very’ and not Spanish tres which means three.

Elles préparent une pizza.
They are making a pizza.

Tu aimes les bananes?
Do you like bananas?

un fruit
A fruit

‘Fruit’ in French almost sounds like ‘free’ or even a little like ‘fooey’.

Elles préparent une pizza.
They are preparing a pizza.

J’aime les pommes.
I like apples.

Il mange une banane.
He is eating a banana.

Un fruit
A fruit

Bon
good for masculine

Bonne
Good for feminine

Prêt
Ready

Français
‘Fran - say’
French



Food 5

Je cuisine des légumes.
I am cooking vegetables.

Turns out cuisine is a verb! Maybe cuisiner for infinitive? Yes! Infinitive is cuisiner!

Tu cuisines un plat français?
Are you cooking a French dish.

un plat
Dish

Papier
Paper

Cuisine: Kitchen?
Yes it’s also a noun that means kitchen. A feminine noun.

Ces croissants sont bons.
These croissants are good.

Ces pommes sont bonnes.
These apples are good.

un légume
A vegetable

Funny’s how légume in French is vegetable but in English it means peanuts, beans, etc. I wonder why that is?

Ces plats sont bons.
These dishes are good.

Tu cuisines?
Do you cook?

Ces pizzas sont bonnes.
These pizzas are good.

Je prépare des légumes.

Œuf
Egg

The French pronunciation of œuf sounds like ova which is an English/Latin prefix that means egg.

Pays
Country

Repas
Meal

Cuisine is pronounced almost exactly how it’s pronounced in English.

Habits course for next time!
