Rule 1 a er eee oh ooo ash

RULE 1: A, Er, Eee, Oh, Ooo, Ash

Why do we write and say j’aime, not je aime?

The reason is what we call the A, Er, Eee, Oh, Ooo, Ash rule (the a, e, i, o, u, h rule).

We avoid a “mushy” sound (try saying je aime…).

No words can end in a vowel+h and be next to another word starting with a vowel+h.


Rule 2 le la les

RULE 2: Le/la/les

Why is it that when we translate a English opinion (I like horses) into French it becomes I like the horses (J’aime le chevals)?

This is the basis for rule 2: you MUST put le/la/les in front of your noun and behind your opinion (I like the [noun]).


Rule 3 transforming into negatives

RULE 3: Transforming into negatives!

Whenever we make something negative, we put ne pas around the word (Je ne suis pas, Je n’aime pas etc.)

This is the third rule: to make something negative you put ne pas around your statement ((I) am, (I) like etc.)

Try making these negative:

Je suis (I am)

Je déteste (I hate)

J’adore (I love)
