It has been a while since I have posted some language tips!
In my last posts about French, I ‘taught’ you how to describe your personality (the ‘Être/I am’ verb basics were included), basic greetings, how to have a basic conversation and the masculine + feminine colours (as in the colours that are le or la, not being stereotypical!) and also, formal vs Informal greetings!
Describe your personality * includes the verb ‘Être/I am’
Having a basic conversation * Includes the verb ‘Aller/to go’, important words such as directions, conjunctions.
Formal vs Informal greetings* Different words and phrases are used for certain age groups
I would really recommend reading the ones with the asterisks * as I’ll be using the verbs and phrases fom those posts, in this one (I won’t re-teach an old blog post unless help is needed)
Lets get started!
Helpful airport phrases
Where is my suitcase? Où est ma valise? Oo ay ma valeez? (Pronounciation)
Ma valise = my suitcase (ma is feminine so the noun suitcase in French is feminine, this does not change if you are a male yourself. If you are a male, the noun remains female)
*I have my suitcase. J’ai ma valise. Jay ma valeez
*I have my suitcase with me. J’ai ma valise avec moi. Jay ma valeez avek moowah
(Avec = with, moi =me)
*I don’t have my suitcase with me. Je n’ai pas ma valise avec moi. Je nay pah ma valeez avek moowah

(Porte= gate (for the airport) (and means door also))
