NEW MEDIA-ENHANCED VERSION! The unscripted but guided video introduces stu­ dents to natural, authentic language as used by a va­ riety of people living in France. We enter their homes, neighborhoods, schools, and places of work, and we meet their friends and families. While speakers in the video use common features of current-day French such as ne deletion, the elision of tu, and vocabulary typical of informal speech, the CHEZ NOUS program presents the grammar and vocabulary of Standard French for student imitation.

Some of these features, such as the absence of ne, find their way into speech used by prominent per­ sons in formal situations. However, although we want students to see authentic, communicative na­ tive interactions and to hear natural speech (which is the objective of the video clips), we present more \"standard\" forms such as the inclusion of negative ne and the retention of the vowel in tu in the classroom context for student production.

Les pronoms sujets et le verbe être Les pronoms sujets et le verbe être SINGULIER PLURIEL je suis I am nous sommes we are tu es you are vous êtes you are il ' he is ils 1 sont they are elle > est she is elles J on , we are ♦ The verb être means to be. This form is called the infinitive; it is the form you find in the dictionary listing for the verb. Notice that a specific form of être corresponds to each subject. Because these forms do not follow a regular pattern, être is called an irregular verb. ♦ A subject pronoun can be used in place of a noun as the subject of a sentence: —Alex est de Paris ? —Alex is from Paris? —Non, il est de Bruxelles. —No, he's from Brussels. As you have learned, use tu with a person you know very well; otherwise use vous. Use vous also when speaking to more than one person, even if they are your friends. Pronounce the final -s of vous as /z/ if the word following it begins with a vowel sound, and link it to that word: Olivier, tu es de Paris ? Olivier, are you from Paris? Madame, vous^êtes de Liège ? Madame, are you from Liege? Audrey et Fred, vous^êtes de Audrey and Fred, are you from Genève ? Geneva? LEÇON 1 JE ME PRÉSENTE I sept 7

On is an indefinite pronoun that can mean one, they, or people, depending on the context. In conversational French, on is often used instead of nous to mean we. On always takes the singular form, est. Nous, on est de Lille. We arefrom Lille. Elies refers to more than one female person or to a group of feminine nouns. Ils refers to more than one male person, to a group of masculine nouns, or to a group that includes both males and females or both masculine and feminine nouns. Anne et Sophie, elles sont en forme. Anne and Sophie arefine. Jean-Luc et Rémi, ils sont stressés. Jean-Luc and Rémi are stressed out. Julie et Damien, ils sont occupés. Julie and Damien are busy. ♦ Use a form of the verb être in descriptions or to indicate a state of being. Elle est occupée. She's busy. Tu es malade ? Are you sick? Je suis stressé. I'm stressed out. ♦ The final -t of est and sont is usually pronounced before a word beginning with a vowel sound. Il est^en forme. He's fine. Il est malade. He's sick. Elles sont^en forme. They're fine. Elles sont stressées. They're stressed out. Comment ça va ? I am fine. . . . tired. Je suis en forme. . . . stressed. ... fatigué/e. . . . very busy. ... stressé/e. . . . sick. ... très occupé/e. ... malade. ♦ Use c'est and ce sont to identify people and things: C'est Madame Dupont ?

E2 Je m'appelle Louis-Jean, je suis de Port-au-Prince, à Haïti. 2. Les pronoms disjoints ♦ You know that subject pronouns can be used in place of a noun (for example, a person or an object) as the subject of a sentence. Subject pronouns appear with a verb: —Adrien est de Paris ? —Is Adrien from Paris? —Non, il est de Trois-Rivières. —No, he's from Trois-Rivières. —Pierre et Mélanie sont occupés ? —Are Pierre and Mélanie busy? —Oui, ils sont occupés. —Yes, they are busy.

♦ A different type of pronoun, a stressed pronoun, is used: ♦ in short questions that have no verb: Je m'appelle Clémence, et toi ? My name is Clémence, how Ça va bien, et vous ? about you? I'm fine, and you? ♦ where there are two subjects in a sentence, one of which is a pronoun: Damien et elle, ils sont fatigués. She and Damien are tired. ♦ to emphasize the subject of a sentence when providing a contrast: Moi, je suis de Lausanne, I'mfrom Lausanne, mais lui, il est de Saumur. but he's from Saumur. ♦ after c'est and ce sont: —Is that Paul? —Yes, it is he. —C'est Paul ? —Oui, c'est lui. —Ce sont M. et Mme Dulac ? —Is that Mr. and Mrs. Dulac? —Oui, ce sont eux. —Yes, it is they.

FORMES ET FONCTIONS 1. Le genre et les articles au singulier All French nouns are assigned to one of two noun classes—feminine or masculine—and are therefore said to have a gender. The gender of a noun determines the form of other words that accompany it—for example, articles and adjectives. ♦ The indefinite article The indefinite articles un and une correspond to a or an in English. Une is used with feminine nouns and un with masculine nouns. Un or une can also mean one: Voilà un bureau. Here's a desk. Donnez-moi une chaise. Give me a chair. Il y a une fenêtre dans la salle There's one window in the de classe. classroom. Before a vowel sound, un ends with an /n/ sound that is pronounced as if it were part of the next word: un_ami, un_ordinateur. In negative sentences, the indefinite article is replaced by de/d': Il n'y a pas de lecteur DVD. There's no DVD player. Il n'y a pas d'ordinateur dans la There's no computer in the classroom. salle de classe. ♦ The definite article There are three forms of the singular definite article, corresponding to the in English: la is used with feminine nouns, le with masculine nouns, and 1' with all nouns beginning with a vowel sound. As in English, the definite article is used to indicate a previously mentioned or specified noun. Voilà la carte. Here's the map. C'est le professeur. That's the professor. Donnez-moi 1'affiche. Give me the poster. In French the definite article also designates a noun used in a general or abstract sense. In such cases, no article is used in English. J'aime le football. I like soccer. Ma sœur adore la musique. My sister loves music.
