Complete french in_the_street

  1. 1. 10 5 Dans la rue In the street You want to find out where some places are in the village. The important thing is to know what to ask for, then people will point you in the right direction. VOCAB Pardon madame, la boulangerie s’il vous plaît? excuse me, where is the baker’s please? Try to guess which places are mentioned in the following examples. a Pardon monsieur, la poste s’il vous plaît? b Pardon mademoiselle, l’office du tourisme s’il vous plaît? c Pardon madame, le supermarché s’il vous plaît? d Pardon madame, le garage Citroën s’il vous plaît? Un peu de grammaire A bit of grammar So far you may have noticed three different ways of spelling the word for good: Bon voyage! Bonne année! Bonnes vacances! This is because in French, nouns (words which represent objects, people or ideas) have a gender; they can be either feminine or masculine. Un voyage a journey is masculine, une année a year is feminine, des vacances holidays is feminine but also plural. The gender of nouns does not follow any logical pattern so you will need to be aware of the gender of every noun you learn. 01-TY-French_xxii-069_01-05.indd 10 13/10/2009 12:06
