Level A1 - French Disjunctive Pronouns Lesson
Learn what disjunctive pronouns are in French and the many different ways to use them
French Stress Pronouns - Disjunctive Pronouns Comprehensive Lesson
This is a complete lesson on how to use French disjunctive pronouns: MOI - TOI - LUI - ELLE - NOUS - VOUS - EUX - ELLES. In English these are: ME - YOU - HIM - HER - US - PLURAL YOU - THEM.
The first step is to watch my 13 minute video tutorial carefully and take notes. I've included a 7 page support guide so that you will have all of the examples used in the video written down for you. In the support guide document you will also find a link to a quizlet study set on French prepositions of location. These are often used with disjunctive pronouns.
You'll then take an online quiz to practice what you've learned in the video tutorial. There are 50 questions with multiple choice answers.
Next, you'll be able to download 50 cards to practice using French stress pronouns in three different ways. These cards closely resemble the online quiz, but they're much more of a challenge since there are no multiple choice answers available. Also, the answer prompts aren't always exactly they way you will have seen them in the multiple choice quiz. You can either practice with these cards online or print out a deck for those times when you don't want to be stuck in front of your computer.
All of the cards have a question written on them. There are two blanks to fill in with your answers. One of the blanks requires a disjunctive pronoun, and the other requires you to change the verb conjugation to agree with the subject of the answer sentence. All of the cards are written in the present tense.
At last comes the real challenge and the true test to know when you've finally mastered French disjunctive pronouns. You'll listen to an audio recording of me asking you the same 50 questions that you will have first seen in the multiple choice quiz, then you will have practiced using the challenge cards with answer prompts. This time you'll write out your answers with no prompts at all on the student response sheet provided. Answer key is provided.
Verbs to be conjugated in present tense: être (10 cards), aller (14 cards), avoir (5 cards), faire (5 cards), regular -er verbs (12 cards), vouloir (1 card), partir (2 cards), prendre (1 card).
