First of all, you need to know the verb ‘être’ meaning, ‘to be’. We use this verb to say ‘I am, you are etc’.
Être To Be (pronounced) Etre
Je suis I am Je swee
Tu es You are too ay
Il/elle est He/she is il/el ay
Nous sommes We are Noo sum
Vous êtes You are (plural) vooz etay
Ils/elles sont He/she are (plural) ils/els sont
Right, after learning Être, we use, Je suis which is I am to start the sentence off.
*note that in middle of sentences, in French, ‘je‘meaning ‘I’ gets no capital like it does in English!*
Words change depending on if you’re a female or masculine. Usually if you’re a female, you will add an extra ‘e’ at the end of a word.
Je suis grand I am tall Je swee gron
Je suis grande I am tall Je swee grond
The pronunciation of the word changes once an ‘e’ is added. The last letter is then usually pronounced.
