In this unit, we will learn how to count in French. We will start with 1 through 30. We will add other numbers as we progress forward to 1,000,000. We will be using numbers to tell time and do some math!! A good way to get a head start is to check out my podcast on Numbers.


We will also learn how the days of the week and months of the year.


The vocabulary includes jours, lundi, mardi, mercredi, jeudi, vendredi, samedi, dimanche. Combien de ...  Mon numéro de téléphone est... Et, plus, moins, font, fois. Time: Il est..., demie, heure, quart, midi, minuit.

Now that we know our numbers in French, we can start using them to give/get information such as asking for and getting time.  If you go to the 
Telling time Quizlet, you will get all the vocabulary needed to tell time in French.  Notice that we use the "h" (not ":") to separate hours from minutes.  Example: 10h22.

Check out the other online web pages to practice telling time.  The Battleship game is a lot of fun!!

Check out the following two videos on telling time:

This week, we will continure our numbers beyond 79 and learn the French translation for the arithmetic operators: plus (et), moins, fois, divisé par, égal (font).  We finished the week doing some math in French.

To start our new unit, we will learn the numbers 0-19.  Like in English, once you know these numbers, you are halfway to knowing how to count from 0 to infinity!!

Don't forget to check out the numbers podcast. I also added a copy below.
