A- Oui, ce sont des nouvelles résidences. (Yes, these are new residences.) TIPS WITH PLURAL WORDS… The final letter of the plural form of some adjectives are usually not pronounced. Trés, Joliés, fillés is pronounced like…. Tré, Jolié, fillé When these adjective types are before a noun, you here the /z/ sound, as shown. les beaux enfants is prounounced les beauZenfants. VOWELS /O/ AND o as in sport The vowel in the word beau is /O/ and is short and is different that the slided word in English bow. The other o that is in sport has less tension yet still dows not slide like in English. These words inlufe le prof, il est fort, and il adore. CONJUGATION WITH –RE VERBS word- attendre j’attends nous attendons tu attends vous attendez il attend ils attendent Good luck with chapter 3!
