Workbook

(page 90) ---8.6 - 8.7 --Numération

It's time to review French numbers. For this section, you are going to have to do a review of numbers in French. Numbers are covered in the workbook on the following pages:

Page 47: 1-29
Page 67: 20-69
Page 76: 70-100

Here we are going to move into numbers involving hundreds and thousands. Study sections 8.6 and 8.7 regarding the uses of cent (hundred) and mille (thousand). Notice in 8.7 that mil is used instead of mille in dates.

(page 91) --- 8.9 -- Numération

Study the examples in phase 1 and phase 2. Then write out the remaining math problems in the same way. You will also be asked to write out several dates in French. Note the following vocabulary items.

Soustraction = subtraction
plus = plus
moins = minus
font = make

* 8.9 -- Numération

(page 91) --- 8.11 -- De la, de l', du, des, pas de

Du is the contraction of de and le. Des is the contraction of de and les. De can mean of, from, or about, so these combinations with the words for the can mean of the, from the, or about the. These combinations also have the meaning of some. In all of the examples in this section, the meaning is some.

Il a du temps. = He has some time.
Il a de l'argent. = He has some money.
Il a de la fortune. = He has some fortune.
Il a des relations. = He has some relationships (acquaintances).
Il a des amis. = He has some friends.

As you learning in the introductory lessons, these combination of de and le, la, l' and les will be replaced by de or d' following most verbs in the negative. In the negative, the meaning can change from some to any.

Il n'a pas de temps. = He doesn't have any time.
Il n'a pas d'argent. = He doesn't have any money.

Etc.

(page 92) --- 8.15 -- Du, de la, de l', des; verbe avoir

Write appropriate answers to these questions using the material provided in the workbook. You should also answer the questions using pronouns instead of repeating the names in the questions.

* 8.15 -- Du, de la, de l', des; verbe avoir

(page 93) --- 8.16 -- Possessifs; mon, ma, mes

If you remember your introductory lessons, you already know this material. Go back to the second introductory lesson if you need to review the expressions for my.

(page 93) --- 8.17 -- Possessifs; mon, ma, mes

I won't ask you to check the family tree to find the answers to these questions. I will give you the answers, but in English. Write out the French equivalent of the questions and answers. (Note the use of c'est in these sentences instead of il est or elle est. C'est is translated either he is or she is depending on the case. Ce sont is also used instead of ils sont and elles sont.)

* 8.17 -- Possessifs; mon, ma, mes

(page 93) --- 8.18 -- Possessifs; ton, ta, tes

Again, Go back to the second introductory lesson if you need to review the forms of the familiar your.

(page 94) --- 8.19 -- Possessifs; ton, ta, tes

Same thing as 8.17. I won't ask you to check the family tree to find the answers to these questions. I will give you the answers, but in English. Write out the French equivalent of the questions and answers. (Note the use of c'est in these sentences instead of il est or elle est. C'est is translated either he is or she is depending on the case. Ce sont is also used instead of ils sont and elles sont.)

* 8.19 -- Possessifs; ton, ta, tes

(page 94) --- 8.20 -- Possessifs; son, sa, ses

Same story. Go back to the second introductory lesson if you need to review the way to say his or her in French.

(page 94) --- 8.21 -- Possessifs; son, sa, ses

Same type exercise as 8.17 and 8.19. I won't ask you to check the family tree to find the answers to these questions. I will give you the answers, but in English. Write out the French equivalent of the questions and answers. (Note the use of c'est in these sentences instead of il est or elle est. C'est is translated either he is or she is depending on the case. Ce sont is also used instead of ils sont and elles sont.)

* 8.21 -- Possessifs; son, sa, ses

(page 95) --- 8.23 -- Possessifs: mon, ton, son, ma, ta, sa, mes, tes, ses

One more exercise on the possessives, but this one is a combo pack. Keep in mind everything you did on the earlier exercises, and write the French equivalent of the questions and answers.
