Before start learning a language, we first need to know these two verbs
1. TO BE AND TO HAVE.
The most useful verbs in every language are these 2 verbs. let's check together how simple we use in French, le verbe etre et avoir !
From the tutorial, you will learn to say, je suis = I am and mention your name or i have a dog = j'ai un chien etc.
Prepositions are very important, because every time you want to go or to do something in every action you take, you need to mention at least one preposition.
Let's see if you find it simple to learn à, au, en, aux - in French
There are not to many questions in one language, you can count them.
Remember, if you do not know something you have always to ask, that;s what smart people do, so learn these basic question and ask me for more.
Learn these questions below :
Qui? (kee) (Who?)
Qu’est-ce que? (kehs-kuh) (What?)
Quand? (kahN) (When?)
Où? (oo) (Where?)
Pourquoi? (poor-kwah) (Why?)
Comment? (koh-mahN) (How?)
Combien? (kohm-biahN) (How much? How many?)
Quelle? (kehl) (Which?)
Y a-t-il? (yah-teel) (Is there? Are there?)
Learning to conjuagate verbs is to simple because there are always definitions how to do that !
See how simple is this : In french actions or verbs are seperated in 3 groups.. in this lecture we will learn the 1st group with ER - les verbes en ER, on dit en Français.
Remember we have more than 10 000 verbs which they end with ER, the point is learn One and do same with others, the rule does not change except for the verb Aller - to go
The verb Aller - is the only French verb that ends with ER - but i'ts an irregular verb.
So it belongs to the 3rd group of verbs in French.
We said that verbs with ER - takes these endings : e,es,e,ons,ez,ent.
Check the conjugation of the verb aller and learn to use it with practictal examples
In this lecture you will understand the French articles, you will know when to use (le) and when (un) or
(la) and (une) the plural nouns with (les) and (des).
Repeat and check all lectures once again ! - Now you can say
Bonjour, je suis le prof de français à Paris, j'ai un téléphone et un chien.
j'habite à Lyon, je parle bien Français et anglais etc....
les adjectifs possessifs are very important - so when you want to say :
mon ami parle bien Français or tes amis parlent bien anglais - its not the same thing.
Mon père travaille dur - my father works hard.
check the lesson and learn these adjectives in very simple way !
Remember we have learned Je suis Beli, prof de Francais - affirmative sentence.
Now it iS time to make negative sentence using
ne + verbe + pas Ex : Mon ami ne travaille pas en France, il travaille en Allemagne ! etc.
Verbe au présent

Verbe au passé
NE/N'+ être ou avoir + PAS + verbe
- Vous avez mangé ? - Non, je n'ai pas mangé.
C'est + ...
CE + N' + est + PAS ...
- C'est bon ? - Non, ce n'est pas bon.
Phrase avec 2 verbes
NE+ verbe 1 + PAS+ verbe 2
- Vous devez aller à l'école ? - Non, je ne dois pas aller à l'école.
NE/N'+ ( " ) + verbe + PAS
- Vous vous couchez tôt ? - Non, je ne me couche pas tôt.
Le / La / Les ...

If you act, this means that you have done an action. so how many actions you make during the day ?
So remember actions are verbs - more verbs you learn more you expand your vocabulary !
Prepositions are important because they work to connect various parts of a sentence.
Prepositions tell us where something is in relation to something else or how things are related in space —in, on, to, with, under etc.
Others show physical connections or possession between nouns or pronouns and another word such as of, with, by. Some refer to relationships in time: while, during, after, until, before, since.
In every language, adjectives are important elements of sentences. Using adjectives means that we can express the quality of any person or object. Without adjectives we could not say how any object looks like
Adjectives are important because they...
--- describe a noun (person, place, or thing)
--- tell more about a noun (person, place, or thing)
--- make sentences more interesting
--- affect the meaning of sentences
Many children learn how to hold a pencil, by first coloring with crayons.
So learning colors will help you to make a choice, Ex : J'aime une voiture rouge - after watching the video, try to make some simple sentences
One thing to note with days of the week is that in French they don't have capital letters. The same goes for the names of months. For all of you who are a bit lazy with your capitalization generally — you're in luck!
Chaque saison a ses charmes, ses couleurs, ses bruits, ses fêtes... Et vous ? Quelle saison de l'année aimez -vous le plus?
these words are very useful, just write in your notebooks and repeat once again in order to memorise them !
Demonstrative adjectives (this, that, these, those) are words used in place of articles to indicate a specific noun. In French, they must agree in gender and number with the noun they modify:
Ce is the masculine singular demonstrative adjective:
Ce prof parle trop. - This (That) teacher talks too much.
J'aime ce livre. - I like this (that) book.
Ce becomes cet in front of a masculine noun that begins with a vowel or mute h (learn more):
Cet homme est sympa.
- This (That) man is nice.
Je connais cet endroit. - I know this (that) place.
Cette is feminine singular:
Cette idée est intéressante. - This (That) idea is interesting.
Je veux parler à cette fille. - I want to talk to this (that) girl.
Ces is plural:
Ces livres sont stupides. - These (Those) books are stupid.
Je cherche ces femmes. - I'm looking for these (those) women.
Start simple. Do not attempt to teach all 26 letters at once. Simply concentrate on a few letters at a time and try to spell your name in French !
Remember when we said '
J'ai un chien, now you can say : She has a rabit - Elle a un lapin, il a un chat etc..
Thomas aime beaucoup la nature et les animaux. À la maison, Thomas a un chien, une tortue, un oiseau et un lapin, et toi ? Tu as des animaux à la maison?
Pour connaître les animaux en français regarde la vidéo suivante :
for example, that “apple = pomme” in French, because you can’t speak a language by translating your mother tongue word for word. When you want to refer to an apple in French, you shouldn’t be thinking “apple; apple = pomme; say pomme”. You should just look at the apple and know that it is “pomme”.

Bonjour ! , my name is Ylber, I was born in Novosello, a small village in the south east of Kosovo, now I live in Montpellier which is a city in south of France, exciting and much more dynamic. I studied French Literature at the university of Montpellier but also English as a foreign language. I have been teaching for 5 years now in many schools and associations. I really enjoy teaching. It gives me the opportunity to learn about the different cultures around the world.
I have become a self taught, Depending on the complexity of a topic, learning something new can take a long time. And it’s bound to be frustrating as you grapple with new terminologies, new models, and apparently irrelevant information. When you are learning something by yourself, there is nobody to control the flow of information, to make sure you move from basic knowledge to intermediate and finally advanced concepts.
Keep in mind these three things :
1. Believe in God
2. be patient and
3. never give up !
Patience with your topic, and more importantly with yourself is crucial — there’s no field of knowledge that someone in the world hasn’t managed to learn, starting from exactly where you are.
I'm constantly trying to improve my teaching skills in order to satisfy the needs of my students. Internet is a very useful tool to experience new methods
I truly believe that learning new things opens the mind and allows you to be more tolerant. I’m quite open minded and flexible and always promote a positive way of learning - I like to tailor my lessons to my students’ needs so that I really can help them progress at their own place in a fun and caring environment!
My job is a passion and I look forward to share my expertise with you ! A bientôt !
I hope you enjoy learning as much as I enjoy teaching !
