1. Lecture 1: Section one introduction to the French language Lecture one Introduction Hello and welcome to the suit, Emmy Course. Thank you for trusting being buying the course. I worked hard on it to make sure you get a quality education. This course is meant for English speakers. Zero notion of French or people who would like to be able to find everything they need on their own and be more independent. I will not teach you grammar deeply or how to conjugate complex verbs. It's more of a course to teach you the basics, like numbers, pronouns and in general, see if you like the French language and help you decide if you want to learn more. Also, if you'd like to be more confident and stop relying on people when traveling discourses for you, this course is divided in seven sections. First Section is about the French language in general, where it's spoken to differences in the alphabet, the letters to pronounce Z ation, etcetera. The second section is about the genders come and verbs, some basic Valka, Billary and cultural matters. After Section two, we will be able to make simple sentences and asked basic informations and Section three we will learn a lot of vocabulary. Now that you know how to build sentences, you need vodka billary to fill them. Section four will be a big step. I will leave you in the wild to make sure you worked enough on the previous sections will work on family jobs, finding things in common verbs. In Section five, you learn airport and hotel vaka, Billary and personal items. Section six will focus on understanding spoken French. Common abbreviations and short names will exercise on spelling, understanding, spoken information and more. The seven section will be focused on dialogues at the airport and at the restaurant. I recommend working on one or two lectures a day you don't need to rush through. Practice is key and learning a language. I will work on new lectures and published new content each month. Thank you for addressing my course, and I hope you will have a great time. Happy learning. Don't worry. If you notice that this course is not right for you or does not meet your expectations, you can ask for a refund. Please remember that you did me a first. Some extra features like taking notes in the video and downloading resource is be careful about onscreen information on how to use those features 2. Lecture 2: lecture to Why Learned French? Have you have a dreamt of a super desperate situation like you can't run your trucks and speeding car or you just let it in French speaking country and your only friend, Speaker friend is gone missing. You're on your own, all the remembers we Sava, you're not going to get far. Given that over 65% of the French population does not speak a second language frequently, maybe you should learn French to have. We're relying on others. And there's many benefits about speaking French. French is the fourth most widely spoken language into European Union. 80 million people speak French as their mother tongue, and a total of 247 million people speak French. Knowing a second or third language can help you in your search for a job. Believe it or not, you will make new friends and friends will always bring you benefits. Look at this map. It represents where you are able to communicate now as an English speaker. English could already take you pretty far. That's effect. You can travel to Australia, the UK, and have the African continent. Now, look at this map. It represents where you be able to communicate. If you spoke French and English now you're able to communicate in over 70% of the African continent France, Belgium, Switzerland, Madagascar and French islands. That's a whole lot of new countries you'd be comfortable in while traveling one day. If you work hard enough and are able to speak on a good level, you might even be able to understand old fridge poetry. And that is a great reward. I hope this course will give you motivation to learn more everyday in travel to discover more polices. 3. Lecture 3: lecture. Three. Who am I? My name is Emily Open writing The English Way. I was born in Brussels, Belgium, and I currently live in the south of Belgium in his city between Brussels and the French border. Most of my close family members of French and English speakers. I have lived in North Yorkshire for a month and attended the Bridge College. Back of my teenage years. I'm a fan of England and English. I love poetry and music, and I've been making using since I was 14. I love learning and sharing. What I know before becoming an instructor had a YouTube channel where it was posting translation of American hip hop songs. Use the new laws about copyright. I had to stop, but my passion to teach never stopped. I started a bachelors, become a teacher and had the opportunity to teach young teenagers. I realized that teaching was the thing. It was the best job for me, but I didn't agree with the schools for around the school systems who are started to work on UTV courses. And there I am. Now I'm super happy to have you as a student. If you have any questions about me or my past work, feel free to ask 4. Lecture 4: let your for you can do it and Google is your friend. If you think you're going to have a hard time learning because everything looks and sounds so different, let me reassure you. By giving you a couple of words in French, you will easily see that it's not that different. Ticket a bucking you probably understood everything it means. Parking ticket order of the words isn't the same, but of vodka. Billary is similar. The world the means. The ticket is related to the parking. It's like pyramid country means permit of driving. Therefore damaging Codrea means driving license. Please know that a ticket and French is just a receipt or a paper or a price for a code is written. If you want to say you got a speeding ticket, you just say Jamie on TV. PV is a report that a police officer writes you when you're caught doing illegal things. Let's do another one. Let's do a home visit. I am just all often shorted us has toe questo means the same thing as the English word visit Ion means vegetarian. Jackson's tell us how to pronounce the letter as on the bodies, just like we've seen with ticket of backing the word links Zhaan and police. This means an agent of the police, a police officer, this school. This 1 may be a little harder. You know what a bus is right? And the words color sounds like scholar, so it's related to school. This Kula means school bus if instead Latin, it will be super helpful in understanding structure of French words. Kamerad! Agita! You got it. It's a digital camera. If we wanted to say digital phone, we would say Telephone digital. The E at the end of digital means that the world camera is feminine. No E because telephone is a masculine work. See, there's a town, a word that you won't even have to study because they're similar to English words. If you're not sure about the pronunciation of a word, Google translator is your friend. It's been mine for years. While you're in Google, just type Google translator or Google Trad and type the French word that you want to hear when you're done typing. Just hit the speaker logo and a lovely lady will read the word for you. Make sure this like French as the import language 5. Lecture 5: Section two Basic Valka, Billary and Grammar Lecture one. The alphabet Ends Pronunciation. You're lucky if you learn French. You don't have to learn you alphabet, but you'll have to wonder differences in the pronunciation of the letters. If you simply take a look at the keyboard, you already notice a major difference. Our first roll is called as if T, while English keyboards have quality. Instead, still looking at the keyboard, you'll notice that we have accents. Letters like you A and e mails have two different versions of the letter C. Once you're done spotting the differences, we can move on to the pronunciation part of the lecture door. You'll quickly notice if it's pronounced differently than the English alphabet. Let's start be see dear, uh, as g Hush E. Is she? Yeah, l i m and oh, be to yeah s dio Yeah, they do privy Eakes you like zit. About five or six letters are pronounced like in English. I'd like to highlight the difficulties of some letters of the French off a bit. Letter J sounds like the J part of Cheesy. It is super confusing to English speakers because the French J sounds like English J No worry. You get used to it. Fun fact. The letter G is frequently used in texts to shorten the G meaning I have or I du in French because is pronounced the same way in English is letter you that is used to shorten you. Same thing. The letter e is a really short letter. Unlike the I sound in English, the G sounds like the G part of the word cheeses. Just drop the D sound and you're good to go. Since some French speakers have trouble with G and J two, you might hear French speakers say that David get dies. The best French DJ. Please don't laugh. They're really trying your best. Well, the car letters pronounced k in English. It's pronounced like taught in French, depending on your X, And the letter o sound similar to is pretty similar. Both languages, except for a Q, is a little shorter. Fun fact. This letter is used to shorten the work who pronounced the same way, which means, but if it is really hard to tell English are, as we learn, it sounds more like a double you. Actually, that's how we learn it in French. You'll have to pull the Spanish out of you to pronounce this f right, But do not roll your tongue. The sound of the air is right in the middle. F the W in French literally means do prove e double T in English. You pronounce it like double. You looked at the letter and said Yes, two letters B but next to each other. So the rivet the while letter is pronounced economic, which means Greek. I in Dutch is pronounced use alone. Every language family seems to see this letter differently. If you are Canadian or nota pronunciation of the alphabet by Canadian, you'll notice that we say, Is that the same way door? If you're ever in trouble with spelling something in French, you can still pull the Charlie card by giving you a letter and the word to confirm it. For example, C come, Charlie s comes era If come folks thought just like the way the police. I didn't for a car tax over the radio. Now that you're familiar with the alphabet, all see how it's divided in French? There's 26 letter six of voles and 20 continents, uh, e o. And like our vowels, the rest of the alphabet constants 6. Lecture 6: months and days. Okay, that you have mastered the art of the alphabet. Let's learn some vocabulary. You will need the basics. First months, days and numbers. Take your time. What you're learning. Don't rush and finish everything in 10 minutes. If you need to hear something again, you can go back in time using the navigation bar on the video player. Let's start with the day's first. If you know a little bit of Italian you'll see looks pretty similar. Landy Monday. Do you know that all sound that Kanye was makes on some of his songs? That's your Monday sell. The love part is long. That D sound is always short when you're talking about dates. Atlantic, Long Beach, Large Mahdi Tuesday Do not forget what I said about the letter air. If you do not say the letter it right, you'll always make the mistake. Some really experienced French speakers that were originally from an English speaking country still make that mistakes. I've heard some please focus on that letter Medical Wednesday. This one is a little harder because you're facing three were letters put together XY here, think of the English word recruit and remove the eat. That's how XF should sound. Medical Merkel D Judy Thursday This one is a little easier. Do not forget that the true sound has to be longer than the deep fun. Fact about Judy. We often joke online about Star Wars using the world Judy because it's similar Jet I. We often say the return of the judicial is your vote. Friday. The first part of the world won't as pronounced slowly, and the rest of the word is quick Walda dish volatile some D Saturday. The letter E is not clearly pronounced in French. That's the only thing to note about this word, something. Some demotion Sunday. The combination of the letter C H turn into which sound like in shahr the ending E is usually dropped when speaking fast. OK, now that you get the days, let's start talking about months. You'll see some months air similar to English Jean via January. The UK sound is pronounced like a quick yea, so it should sound like GE Ge Fei every February. If every has an acute accent on the E, which means it's not regular eat. Same things goes on for the E A sound. It's favor Yea. In some regions, the eyes more pronounce, so it sounds like a 50 year mass march. This one is pronounced just like Amar. Skinny Barak said. The A sounds more like the French A. Do not forget to pronounce the s the end of the word muss muss every April, just like every levin but more Frenchy May May this one son's 90% like the English word his room. June. These men sound can be difficult to pronounce, so focus and repeat it again. Sure, some people actually say Drill a salad bowl Like Joie Julia July This one is pronounced like jewelry. Yeah, Judy Boot, August the A is now pronounced here. What boot? And that's actually how some people pronounced out. They say septum. September October, October no vom November This home December last four months are easier to write and remember, be careful toe work on a pronoun station, though 7. Lecture 7: Okay, Big step ahead numbers. They're not super easy, but at least the repetitive. There's an easy method to remember everything. You have to learn numbers from 1 to 101st. Once you know your numbers, you just need to add another number to talk about 3000 Exeter. The numbers and French have the same structures as English numbers and Dutch, for example. It's different. Here's how it works in English, we'd say 22 French. We would see that do so. 20 and two in Dutch, we say Twin, twin D two and 20. So you'll be fine. Just make sure to practice every day. First, let's look at 0 to 10 zero. Not pronounced like the English way. It's zero. Oh, let's use that Kanye Sound again. Oh, do the exit. Ian of the word is silent. Do twas the s is silent, although people won't look at you Weird. If you say it, just try to focus on not saying it. Yep, The Q u A is pronounced like top. If you really want to speak, probably don't forget the E at the end, even though most French speakers will drop it chatto sandwich. This number sounds almost like sunk, sank, Cease. The eggs is pronounced as an s. So it's cease cease since the p is silent. So just say it like set reach. The age is silent here, so it sounds like wheat. If you pronounce it the right way, it will actually sound like you're starting to whistle it, REIT. No, If this one sounds just like it's written enough these once again, the eggs sounds like in s dese. Okay, it was pretty simple, but I have to warn you before we start, the people from France have a weird way of counting over to number 60. I'll explain it later. It's your choice. If you'd rather learn the Belgian way of counting or the French way of counting. Let's continue with numbers from 11 to 99. Who's DUIs plays get those. Jones says. That's all you have to remember. From here. You can see that there is a pattern in the words it becomes dese meaning tonight and the number associate id. So 17 is gonna be this Sit 18 is gonna be this street Exeter, D said these reeds these enough that no, you know, that Vermont means 20. Once again, there's a pattern. It goes on until 60. Vote. I don't know they do that twat. Don't get that sunk. That sees that said that meat that enough. So that's 20 to 29. Now you have 30. 30 is taught tall. Tina Tom Do Don't watch. Don't get taunt Sank Kansi's Taunts it. Paul treats Talton. If that was 30 to 39 let's go to 40 can hold General Deal Gallon do gallant law count cap Got sock ounces that was 40 to 49. Circled 50 Sakata cycle. Do psych on 12 so I don't get sick on psych Psych. Kansi's second said Cycle treed. Suckled enough. That was 50 to 59. Now let's see. 60 Swiss on Swiss Cynthia sweats. Undue stress on tour so I don't get so it's on psych. So Assad sees social set. So some treat so something. If Okay, so you're still in the safe zone about numbers. Now, please welcome 70. Pronounced like 60 10 then goes on 60 11 60 12 60 13 exit row in French. We just keep going with sit. Don't sit Tall tales that don't Instead of saying Swiss on these sorts until source on those. It's your choice now to either study the French Way or the Belgian oy. That's that's up to you right now that, say, the easiest one is the Belgian one on, and maybe you can learn to French one later. But stick to one method. Whether it's the French wanted a Belgian on, there is actually no need to learn both or try to blend in using the French Way unless you're a spy. Belgians understand the French numbers and French understand the Belgian numbers, so you'll be fine if someone tells you number. Using the way you don't usually use, repeat it with your method and check if you're talking about the same numbers, which can be really important about prices or time or dates and stuff like that. Okay, so the French way goes on like Swiss on this. So it's not the only source on does so sometimes cattles. So some girl's so salt says so, Cindy said. So it's on the street so sensitive, so it's actually 60 and 60. Den. 60 11 60 12 60 30 and extra. The Belgian way. Sounds like this, said Don't saved Adia sipped on Do said, Don't or sit down, grab cept on, Sonic said. Don Sees stepped on, said Sadat. It sit down. Now is about the time we get to 80. Fun fact, about 80 is that people from Switzerland say, Look, don't or Wheat in, which sounds a little moral logic. French sake it, although it literally means four times 20 after Kosovo, you at 123 Excedrin. Once you reach 89 you get back to that weird pattern. Go HD 10 80 11 exit room. Okay, so let's go with 80 Tetovo, get over our get hovel. Do get Covanta, Get over, get gettable! Selling cattle sees Get travel, Sit, get worried, Kept of a live Then we go back to the batter. Get about these get Jones says, All right, you can breathe for a minute. You just learned the hardest part of it. Congrats. Now let's get to 100 above. It is much simpler, trust me. So that means 100. If you want to count over the 100 just add the desired number after some. So one sign 125 Sandoz 112. Remember that number because is the emergency number in Europe Some Swiss Audio 161 Exeter ? Just be careful about higher numbers, though. Meal means 1000. It doesn't mean a mile. There's no miles and friends and there's no miles in Belgium, so you'll never see a mile. It's meal. It means 1000. Emilio means one million Amelia means a 1,000,000,000 video means a trillion letter eight. 8. Lecture 8: letter eight Geography and accents. You probably know that a language has many different dialects. French from Belgium and friends from the south side of France are different. Also, just in case things weren't complicated enough. There's a lot of regions where people speak French and another language. Look at the map below. It's a simplified explanation of different languages spoken in officially French speaking countries in the Brussels region, most people speak French or Dutch. I added English as 1/3 language because many European commissioner members work there and speak fluently English. You can see that the north part of Belgium, called Flanders, is not in green. It's because the main languages Flemish Sam ish is the name given to the Dutch language spoken by citizen of Flanders, usually Belgians living in the north or pretty good would English, and you can easily communicate with them. Since Belgium in France have coming borders with Germany, citizens living near the border speak German. Belgium has an official community of German citizen and as adopted German as 1/3 official language in France. Some people live in as us can speak French and Alsace yah. It's a mix of French and German, a big part of France, used to belong to Germany during the war, and it explains the massive influence of German on French. And as us the country always has an influence on the French language. In the north of France, people speak with an accent that sounds like South alone. Your French fun fact. For many years, Flanders and Wallonia have been fighting over Brussels. Geographically speaking, it's into Flanders territory that the majority of Brussels citizen are French speakers. Okay, now you know more about all the weird French parts off Europe. Now you're ready to move on to how to introduce yourself. 9. Lecture 9: lecture. Nine. How to introduce yourself when someone told you you were expecting them to be polite, especially if you give them in full advice or help them get somewhere. You'd be upset if someone just ask you for something and then stormed off without saying thank you. You'd also be super embarrassed. Something in French without knowing how to think or greet people. That is why I'm about to teach out. Introduce yourself. Okay. Introducing yourself requires a minimal knowledge about French verbs and how to country gate. Um, let's start with the personal pronounce First Joe, Joe, or depending on the verb following, means I The rule about Joe and Jay is simple. If the verb following it starts with a vowel, the becomes Let me show you some examples. Germont The pronoun does not change because the following verb doesn't start with a foul. Jeez, the verb I've starts with the foul. Therefore you need to shorten the Sha Tau. Avoid a weird sound. Usually if you miss up and use the wrong pronoun, it will sound weird And you will know you made a mistake until you're totally comfortable with the first pronoun. Don't hesitate to practice and speak with native French speakers. They'll correct you. You can also listen carefully when it's their time to speak, so you can master the first person pronoun to means you. I hear a lot of learners pronounced this one wrong all the time. Once you pick the habit, you always say it wrong. So please listen carefully and repeat it until you get it right. People usually say tool, but it's too to two. Is the friendly way to talk to someone you know? If you don't know personally someone, or if you're talking to an employer, your boss or anyone with more power than you, you need to use the polite form. There's a chart online to help you determine eight if you should use to or vou. Since it's pretty complicated, I'll just explain it to you here. If you're talking to a child, you can use to, even if you don't know that kid, unless the child is a member of the royal family or related to a country leader than you used to polite you. If you're talking to an adult who is a part of your family, you can use to. If the adult is family from super far away the family tree. You can use the polite forum until the person's is. It's OK you can use to when talking to retired. People usually use If you're about to talk to an adult stranger on the street, you can use, for example, when you're about to ask for directions and you can always say excusing more before starting toe. Ask anything. If you're speaking to your lover, recalls friend, Husband, wife. You can use to. If you're talking to the family of your lover husband, wife, use voodoo and then ask if it's OK if everybody uses too friendly for usually, people will feel embarrassed and politely ask you to stop using too polite for if you're talking to a president, your boss, the waiter, waitress, a teacher or the seller in a shop, use voodoo unless there close to you. Of course, in general, if you're not sure, used food until the person says that you can use to. People will say to permit you to you. It's not really translatable, but it basically says you can call me with to look around. If people used a friendly form to talk to everyone. Just do the same thing. Don't be mad. If a kid uses the friendly form with you. They usually don't learn the difference before age nine or 10. You u stands for him and l stents for she. The pronoun is used to talk about a group of people, but it's considered singular. For example, well, more wholesome means we're eating together. The only represents the group, and you can replace the own with it, and it will still be correct. Eat. It can also be used to represent something else in a person. For example, it improved, meaning it's raining. It's what we call unpersuaded all Another example. Gylfie Boo. Meaning the weather is good. New is the French version of we Nothing special about this one, who is either the polite version of two or a way to talk about multiple people. Just like the English you il L. This one is a little tricky. Deal means they were talking about boys. It means you're talking about a group of girls. There's just one thing. What do you say when it's a group of boys and girls? There's if there's at least one boy in the group. It's automatically heal, meaning that if you have a group of nine girls and one boy, it's gonna be it'll. Boys always win with verbs Now that you know your pronounce, we can start learning verbs. Let's start with to be so you'll be able to introduce yourself to tell someone who you are . There's two ways you can either say hi, my name is or say hi, I am. We'll learn both weights Usually introduce yourself by giving your first name and your last name. Let's learn some vocabulary First Penal First name. This is your first name. I'll do it for me. Gemma. Bill Imedi. Imedi No or not for me is last night your family name. This is your last name. I'll do it for me again. Modeled for me a Scrivens Mama Emily Scrivens. If someone asks you Kelly Toma or kill it vocal. No, they're expecting to hear your full name Age in English and Dutch. When you want to give your age, you use the verb to be in French. You will see I have 20 years old, for example. Unusual moment Image E G. You can spot the difference is here and friends, you would say I have 21 years in the ocean. Dutch. You would say I am 21 or I am 21 years old in French. We just used to say year and all to say years. We don't use another word to go with it simply to be named. It's in the woods. Introduce yourself Instead of saying I'm John, you can see my name is John. For example, let's start to fully congregate to be in tow. Have it to be just to a Yeah. And, uh, Newsome was it Essel? Now let's start to congregate Tohave J Teoh. Uh ah. News, everyone. Mousavi it is, um, as, um, there's no special trick to remember them. You just have to study them. Please be careful not to make a mistake with Isam and ism. Now you can study all those new verbs announced that you've learned, and when you're done, we'll be starting to practice 10. Lecture 10: link Turton being polite. Okay, It's now time to learn how to be polite and what words to use when greeting someone. You could totally survive a conversation with Sela Salvato. What is so interesting at all? Instead, let's run how to greet someone. If you're about to talk to a stranger someone who seems busy with something, you can just say excuse him or to get their attention. I'm a more civil play is what people tell you when they're busy for a short amount of time and they'll get back to you as soon as they can. They could also say announced dancing problem. You can use messy to think someone in Messi, Baku to think someone a lot. See, Problem can be used to call a stranger, usually to tell them something like, Hey, you dropped your wallet or a something fell out of your pocket. Something like that.

Lecture 11: a lecture. 11. Gender NEDA You know how to form basic phrases. It's time to fill them with some useful vocabulary. You may be aware that now owns have a gender in French. It can be tough to learn, and you need to do the same thing every time you learn a new word. Study the gender of the word. Knowing the gender of a noun is super important in French because it deter minds. The choice of pronoun, the adjective following any can influence the verb 99% of the time. There's no rule to remember the gender of a noun. The only way to know is to study carefully and always remember the gender. When you check a word in a dictionary, I'm going to give you a few rules to recognize the gender of announce in Belgium is, um, Bella Back tomorrow we're going to focus on the adjective bell that you can see a means pretty. It's written in different forms. The one would just bell and the one with Bella.

Let's take another example much at Amazon like DVT, it'll result. You can see that the adjective amuse own Haddon e added to the second sense, so you can spot the difference. Now. Much is a masculine word. Activity is a feminine word. Let's look at another example. Rudisha ITC Alloy Lebranchu ec alloy.
