  6. Qu'est-ce que tu fais (en/au autre saison)?
  7. Avec qui? (I'll ask this question after either #4, #5, or #6!)
  8. Then you ask me two questions... not the weather, not when's my birthday, and not ça va or my name or anything else to which you already know the answer.
First play the practice video, then CAH asks students questions

{30 minutes} venir and the recent past (passé récent—p. 168)
  • Learn conjugation of venir: to come!
    • je viens, tu viens, il vient, nous venons, vous venez, elles viennent
  • Use this verb to mean physically coming to a place:
    • Nous venons à la fête!
  • You can also use this verb to speak of something that just happened:
    • Nous venons de manger: "We just ate."
    • Je viens de ranger mes affaires: "I just picked up my things."
    • Basic formula: conjugate venir, then add de, then add the infinitive of the action you just did.
  • Practice with p. 168 Exs. 33 and 34.
Les Devoirs: Lots of review for the Chapter 5 Grammar Quiz (Tuesday, March 20!)
  1. Do p. 169 Ex. 35
  2. Write 8 French mini-dialogues of this form:
    • "Are you going to do X?" (use aller + infinitive for futur proche!)
    • "I just did X." (use venir de + infinitive for passé récent!)
    • Each dialogue must use a different verb for "X" (chanter, étudier..., faire...).
  3. Do p. 176 review exercises 1, 2, & 3. Write complete sentences!
