LC Tip of the Week #7

Use of “y” :

We have already discussed this great little fella, “y” : it means “there”.  An example of this is :

I like town. I go there each weekend.

J’aime la ville. J’y vais le weekend.

See the way “y” jumps back 1 word. It is treated like a vowel – which is why “je” becomoes “j’  “

Can you translate the following, using a well known “must have” – he told me that : il m’a dit que

“He told me that he would come there with me”

Remember when forming the verb “come” – to use conditional tense ( future stem and imperfect ending )

A tricky structure, so think carefully!  Give it a go – we only publish the correct answers, so if you get it wrong – it won’t appear on this page!

Bonne Chance!
