Welcome to the fourth French lesson about the plural. This time we will learn about the singular form and what it looks like in the plural, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of emergency phrases.
The plural is the form which refers to more than one object or person. For example: I speak two languages the plural here is [languages] because it refers to more than one [language]. The examples below use plurals in different ways and places to demonstrate how they look when converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - French|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] je parle une langue
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] nous parlons trois langues
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] il visite de nombreux pays
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] ils sont heureux maintenant
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun] elle a cinq chaussures rouges
|I want a sandwich without onions|
[preposition + plural noun] je veux un sandwich sans oignons
The following is a list of examples showing both the singular and plural form. This demonstrates how the plural is used with humans, objects and animals.
Now it's time to practice your French by looking at these phrases which are related to emergencies. Be prepared when traveling abroad, just in case you need help or by offering help to someone else. I recommend writing these expressions down on a notebook before traveling.
|English - French|
|Help au secours !|
|Call the ambulance appelez l'ambulance !|
|I need a doctor j'ai besoin d'un médecin|
|Where is the closest pharmacy? où se trouve la pharmacie la plus proche ?|
|Are you okay? ça va ?|
|I am sick je ne me sens pas bien|
|Call the police appelez la police !|
