I am nineteen. *We use the verb "avoir" to talk about how old people are. It's almost like you are saying how many years you "have"* Quel âge as-tu? How old are you? *Again, we are using "avoir" to ask how old someone is. In this case I am using an inversion of the verb and subject to form a question. We have not been taught this in class or in the book yet, but she often phrases questions like this when she is talking in class* ex) Comment t'appele-tu? What's your name? ex) As-tu un stylo? Do you have a pen? ex) Avons-nous un examen? Do we have a test? Les articles définis/indéfinis review *Definite articles are used for something specific, while indefinite articles are used for more general terms* ex) Voici des enfants. Ce sont les enfants de Marion. Here are some children. They are Marion's children/the children of Marion. ex) Voici une ville. C'est la ville de Besançon. Here is a town. This is the town of Besançon. ex) Voici un immeuble. C'est l'immeuble. Here is a building. This is the building.
