    Learning French, Livie?! I’m se excited! And I’ve read every post you’ve written so far. It’s a nice way to hear your voice and peek into your life when you’re so far. If you ever want any help at all with any French, I really want to help. I miss French so much, so you would be doing me a favor by asking for it!

    • Yes, Jess! I will be sure to ask and it’s good to know you would enjoy it too. For a start…what the best way to do verbs and tenses? I hope you and Joel are well, Jessica. Thanks for reading a long. : )

    Hi Liv! A quick go-to for tenses (if I understand you correctly–let me know if your question was different) looks like this…
    Passé composé: for events that happened in a specific time frame (e.g.: J’ai reçu une lettre de ma mère ce matin.)
    Passé imparfait: for events without any specific time–can also be said as, “I used to…” (e.g.: J’avais un chat blanc quand j’étais enfant.)
    Comining the two: You were doing something, then something else happened (e.g.: J’allais au supermarché quand mon téléphone a sonné.)

    Future tenses…
    “I’m going to…” looks like “Je vais voir un film au cinema ce weekend.”
    “I will…” puts an ending on the infinitive of the verb: “Tu parleras en français avec ton amie Jess!”

    Subjunctive is tricky, so I’ll let a real teacher show it to you. But you’ll use subjunctive mostly for commands. For example, “Have a good weekend,” would be, “Passez un bon weekend.” (The French use the verb “passer” to talk about anything you do relating to time–like passing some kind of time.)

    I hope this has been more helpful than confusing! Again, any help you want, just ask. We can even Skype/FaceTime if that helps!
