TO ANSWER SOMEONE “DO YOU HAVE ANY PETS?” IN FRENCH, THIS IS WHAT YOU SAY…
J’AI……
= I HAVE…..
FOLLOWED BY THE WORD FOR YOUR PET.
FOR EXAMPLE….
J’AI UN CHAT = I HAVE A CAT
J’AI UN CHIEN ET UN LAPIN
= I HAVE A DOG AND A RABBIT
IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PETS, THIS IS WHAT YOU SAY…
JE N’AI PAS D’ANIMAL = I DON’T HAVE ANY PETS
COPY THESE EXAMPLES INTO YOUR EXERCISE BOOKS
HOW TO SAY IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF PET – “PLURALS”
MORE THAN ONE OF SOMETHING IS KNOWN AS A “PLURAL”.
IN ENGLISH, TO MAKE SOMETHING PLURAL, WE ADD AN “S” TO THE WORD
FOR EXAMPLE, 2 CATS, 4 DOGS, SOME RABBITS ETC.
THERE ARE SOME EXCEPTIONS OF COURSE… EG, A SHEEP, 2 SHEEP. 1 MOUSE, SOME MICE.
PLURALS ARE VERY SIMILAR IN FRENCH…
TO MAKE SOMETHING PLURAL YOU ADD AN “S”
DEUX CHATS
TROIS LAPINS
DES POISSONS (= SOME FISH)
AS IN ENGLISH, THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE. THE NEXT SLIDE SHOWS SOME EXAMPLES…
SOME DIFFERENT PLURALS IN FRENCH
DEUX OISEAUX
DEUX CHEVAUX
DEUX SOURIS
(IF THE WORD ALREADY HAS AN “S” ON
THE END, YOU DO NOT ADD ANOTHER)
COPY THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLES INTO YOUR BOOKS
J’AI DEUX CHATS = I HAVE TWO CATS
J’AI TROIS LAPINS = I HAVE THREE RABBITS
J’AI DES POISSONS = I HAVE SOME FISH
J’AI DEUX OISEAUX = I HAVE TWO BIRDS
J’AI DEUX CHEVAUX = I HAVE TWO HORSES
J’AI DEUX SOURIS = I HAVE TWO MICE
NOW WRITE IN FRENCH A SENTENCE SAYING WHAT PETS YOU HAVE.
ALTHOUGH FRENCH AND ENGLISH ARE SIMILAR WITH THEIR
PLURALS, IN FRENCH, THE “S” IS SILENT WHEN PRONOUNCED.
NOW HAVE A GO AT THE EXERCISES ON THE NEXT SLIDES TO PRACTISE THESE PHRASES…
WRITE A SENTENCE IN FRENCH BASED ON EACH PICTURE. SET YOUR WORK OUT

Did you notice anything different about the French word for “a” with these pets?
That’s right, one says “un”, the other says “une”.
They both mean “a” so why are they different?
In French all nouns (person, place or things) are known as either Masculine or Feminine.
Read the next slide carefully as it will explain more
keywords
READ THIS SLIDE VERY CAREFULLY
Every NOUN in French is either Masculine or Feminine
A noun is a person, place or thing. Any word that you can put the word “a” or “the” in front.
In French, the words for “a” and “the” are different, depending on if the word is
masculine or feminine.
ENGLISH
MASCULINE
FEMININE
A
UN
UNE
THE
LE
LA
REMEMBER: It is the “word” itself which is either masculine or feminine. You might
own a female cat, but the word for “cat” in French will always be masculine.
How do you know if a word is masculine or feminine? You have to learn them!!
When you learn a new noun in French, you will always learn it with the extra words
“UN”, “UNE”, “LE” or “LA”. Just like you did with the words for pets.
