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.
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]).
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)
Translate these sentences into French/English:

I don’t like dogs.
I hate horses.
