  • 2. Vocabulaire les articles DEFINITE INDEFINITE • • • • • • • le the (m.sing.) la the (f.sing.) l’ the (m/f + voyelle) les the (m/f pl.) un a/an (m.sing.) une a/an (f.sing.) des some (m/f pl.)
  • 3. le, la, l’, les (definite articles) • What do these words mean? These words ALL mean THE. • So how do you know which one to use?????
  • 4. When to use which one?  Well, first of all, if the noun is plural, there is only one definite article you can use: les • Example to say the teachers you would say: • les professeurs.  (If a noun is plural, you don’t really need to know if it’s masculine or feminine in order to choose the correct article- because there is only ONE plural article to choose from: les)
  • 5. If your noun is singular (that means you’re talking about only one thing), then you have to choose from le, la, l’ . Your choice of definite article depends on the gender of the noun that follows (is the word masculine? or feminine?) • In French, every noun has a gender—it is either masculine or feminine. • In order to choose between le or la, you have to know the gender of the noun.
  • 6. Use LA with feminine nouns Since the noun table (table) is feminine if you want to say the table you would say: • la table. • Since carte (map) is feminine, how would you say the map? • la carte • Magnifique!
  • 7. Use LE with masculine nouns Since the noun crayon (pencil) is masculine if you want to say the pencil you would say: • le crayon. • Since stylo (pen) is masculine, how would you say the pen? • le stylo • Fantastique!
  • 8. • So when do we use l’ ? See if you can figure out the rule: l’oignon (m) = the onion l’agrafeuse (f) = the stapler l’école (f) = the school • What do these FRENCH words have in common? • • • • That’s right!!! They all: •Start with a vowel •AND are singular.
  • 9. Use L’ with singular masculine or feminine nouns that start with a VOWEL l’ is used to mean the in front of a masculine or feminine noun starting with a vowel. • Example: l’ ordinateur
  • 10. Révision • 1. _____ livre (m) = the book le • 2. _____ prix (m) = the price le la • 3. _____ coupe glacée (f) = the ice cream sundae • 4. _____boissons (f) = the drinks les • 5. _____oignons (m) = the onions les • 6. _____ ordinateur (m) = the computer l’
  • 11. Vous êtes très intelligents! • So let’s move on to indefinite articles…
  • 12. un, une, des (indefinite articles) un, une & des are indefinite articles. (They don’t refer to any specific item— any one will do.) un/une = a (or an) Des =some Examples •un livre = a book •un oignon =an onion •une portion = a serving •une pomme=an apple •des frites = some fries
  • 13. un, une, des In front of a masculine singular noun use… un In front of a feminine singular noun use… une In front of a masculine or feminine plural noun use… des
