We start this course with a recap of the tenses we've learnt so far: the present tense, the present perfect tense, the imperative and the reflexive verbs. Then, we move on to a new tense: the imperfect tense.
The imperfect tense is the second past tense in French, and in this course we're going to learn how to form it and how to use it. We'll also look at the difference between the imperfect tense and the present perfect tense because, even though they're both used to talk about the past, they are very different.
We're going to continue looking at the prepositions à and de, and we'll see how certain verbs change depending on which preposition we use. The difference between parler à and parler de, or the difference between penser à and penser de are very interesting to look at.
In this course, we're also going to look at the fifth French structure, which it might not surprise you to learn, involves the imperfect tense.
We're going to be recapping the word depuis and how we used it with the present tense to say how long you've been doing something. And then, we're going to use it with the imperfect tense to say how long you had been doing something.
We're going to be looking at some new topics about our home life, and we'll get a Vocabulary Expansion Sheet full of words and phrases based around household chores.
There's also much more that we're going to be looking at including plenty new words, looking at the word "pour" in front of verbs, a new negative expression "ne ... plus" and how the meaning of the adjective propre can change depending on whether you place it in front of the noun or after it.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy 😊
