Activities Leçon 13-Les Activités

Aimer/Préférer : 

Aimer/Préférer Est-ce que tu aimes...?=Do you like...? J'aime...=I like... Je n'aime pas...=I don't like... Je préfère...I prefer... Examples: J’aime nager.=I like to swim. Je n’aime pas chanter.=I don’t like to sing. Je préfère danser.=I prefer to dance.

Les Verbes : 

Les Verbes The following are verb infinitives (to + verb meaning)  that can be used after J'aime or Je n'aime pas to say what one likes to do or does not like to do. The same construction can be used with Je préfère or Je ne préfère pas. We do the same thing in English: I like to eat. téléphoner à=to phone someone  J'aime téléphoner à Louis.=I like to phone Louis. parler=to speak   Il aime parler français.=He likes to speak French. When expressing speaking a language, the article le is not used before the language: Je parle anglais.=I speak English.       Tu parles espagnol.=You speak Spanish.

Les Verbes : 

Les Verbes manger=to eat danser=to dance nager=to swim jouer à=to play a sport or a game Elle aime jouer au tennis.=She likes to play tennis. regarder=to watch, to look at  Tu aimes regarder la télé.=You like to watch television.

Les Verbes : 

Les Verbes écouter =to listen to J'aime écouter la radio.=I like to listen to the radio. dîner=to eat dinner  dîner au restaurant=to eat out voyager=to travel étudier=to study travailler=to work

Remarquez! : 

Remarquez! Please note: téléphoner takes an à after it before a person to whom you are calling. Regarder means to look at, so at is not expressed as a separate word. The same is true of écouter, which means to listen to. Jouer requires au or aux before a sport or game. If the sport is singular: le tennis, le foot (soccer), le basket (basketball), le volley (volleyball) put au after jouer. If the sport or game is plural: les jeux d'ordinateur (computer games), les jeux vidéo (video games) use aux after jouer.

Vouloir : 

Vouloir Verb infinitives can be used with the verb vouloir to ask what people want to do. They can also be used with the verb pouvoir to ask what they can do. Est-ce que tu veux...?=Do you want...? Je veux...=I want... Je veux bien...=I really want..., I'd love to...

Pouvoir : 

Pouvoir Est-ce que tu peux...?=Can you...? Je peux...=I can... Examples: Est-ce que tu peux jouer au foot avec moi? Can you play soccer with me? Oui, je peux jouer au foot avec toi. Yes, I can play soccer with you.

Autres Réponses : 

Autres Réponses Some other responses to invitations: Bien sûr.=Certainly.D'accord.=All right, okay.Je regrette mais...=I'm sorry but... Je ne peux pas.=I cannot.Je dois...=I must... Mais oui!=Certainly! Sure! Mais non!=Of course not! Peut-être=Perhaps

Les Questions : 

Les Questions Although there are basically two ways to form questions in French, for now you will form them using est-ce que. Est-ce que is placed before a statement to create a question. Examples: Statement: Tu aimes jouer au foot. You like to play soccer. Question: Est-ce que tu aimes jouer au foot? Do you like to play soccer?

Les Questions : 

Les Questions In the preceding example nothing changes about the statement other than est-ce que being placed before it. The "e" of que in est-ce que will be dropped before a vowel or vowel sound and replaced with an apostrophe: Est-ce qu'il aime danser?

Aimer with je/tu : 

Aimer with je/tu Remember: When asking a question with tu, the answer will always be formulated with je. Example: Est-ce que tu aimes danser? Bien sûr, j'aime danser. Notice, in the above example, the difference in the spelling of the forms of aimer=to like, to love. When tu is the subject, the verb is spelled aimes.   When je is the subject, the verb is spelled aime.
