Bonjour gens de Vizzed. I know this is long overdo but this is my entry for learning how to speak french.
Singelli : I know you been waiting for me to do so
Anyway, Let us start with the basics.


Today I am going to start small. I will be teaching alphabet (Which is useful and thankfully is on the beginning pages of the French book "Bien Dit") and gender of the words. I won't go to much detail to it but will just give you a bit of basics. Let our toes touch the water first before we take a swim to the language.

Alphabet

As you know, the alphabet are basic fundamentals of any language. It helps us understand how to pronounce words

Here is how to say the alphabet

 A- Ah G-jzeh M-Meh S- Es Y-ee-greck
 B- Beh H- Ash N-Neh T-Teh Z-Zeh
 C- Say I-Ee O- Oh U-you 
 D-Deh J-Jeh P- PehV-veh  
 E- Eh  K-ka Q- Kyuu W- Doopla-Vay 
 F- Ef     L-l          R- (roll it)     X-ex                                
  

     
Gender
-agemasculineExceptions:une cage, une image, une nage, une page, une plage, une rage
-eaumasculineExceptions:l'eau, la peau
-efeminineExceptions:un lyce, un muse
-ionfeminineExceptions:un avion, un bastion, billion, un million, un lion, un scion
-tfeminine



Okay, most languages consist of genders, Spanish and French are big examples. In french, how you can differentiate most words is by how they end (Look at the chart above). There are a few exceptions but we won't go far into detail until later in the next few posts. Some examples are: Girl,boy, language, Car, cat and dog.

Girl and boy is quite obvious. In English, we use "The" to direct the subject that you are referring. French however, You use "Le" and "La". (There are more like mon, mes, and etc but not going into detail until later in the thread.) So when saying "The girl is happy", you say "La fille est huereux" La is referring to the girl, helping you know she's female (Obviously). The same goes for boy. When you want to say "the boy", you use "Le" To help describe that he is male.

Some words can go either way with the genders. The next word that does this is language. "Wait what? Language doesn't have a gender?' a few might say. In reality, it does, just not in English. Language is feminine and masculine, depending on how it is used. When used to describe the language of the people and/or country, it's feminine "La langue". When describing about a system , it's masculine "Le langage".

Other words, as I mentioned earlier, may look manly in English, but it's quite the opposite. Car is a perfect example of it. "Why is car female? It's big, heavy and manly" Though not in the chart, most words that end in "e" are usually feminine.Again, exceptions but might go to detail probably next lesson. "Une voiture" is what is is in the french language. (The chart helps you people, it saves lives)

Cat and Dog. Both can be male or female "That's quite obvious by now, don't you think?" Well yeah, but it doesn't hurt to learn. Basically Cat and dog can be "Le chat et le chien" or "La chat et la chien" Simple and effective

Well, since we covered a bit on genders, on to next week's lesson. "Wait, Isn't there more to the subject though?" Yes there is but right now, we are just dipping our toes into the water. You'll learn more about genders on the next lesson, including how to use verbs and adjectives in different genders, different words to describe the gender (My, mine, his, her, etc) and a bit more. Until then, au revoir?

This is about it. Until the next post, au revoir
