Final Tip of the Week of 2009!

Alors,  it’s the last one for the year folks!  Let’s make it an interesting one  so…..

how to use the word “y” :

“y” means there.  It will always jump back one word.

For example : I love town. I go there every weekend.

J’aime la ville. J’y vais le weekend.

See the way the “y” jumps back before the “vais” ?

It should be “je y vais”.  But “y” is treated as a vowel in French!   So because of the two vowels, we drop the “e” in “je” – j’y vais.

Now you try this one :

I love town.  We go there every weekend.

The first correct answer submitted in the “leave a comment” above – will have a raffle ticket for the 50 euro raffle to be held first week of Jan.  There is one more raffle ticket to win – if you can “name that song” – see the last quiz on our site !!  Have you entered it yet??

See you in 2010!
