Level A2 - French Negation in 3 Tenses

Learn 9 ways to use negation in the present, passé composé, and futur proche!

A2 LEVEL: FRENCH NEGATION IN THREE TENSES

In this course I will teach you to reply to affirmative statements and questions using 9 different common types of negation. I'll show you how to use them in the present, passé composé, and futur proche tenses, and you'll have loads of resources to help you practice and master your new skill!

STEP 1: Download your «COURS» and have it ready to take notes, write rules, and write examples during the lesson. This is an outline of the study guide in STEP 2, but this way you can put pen to paper and enrich your learning experience.

STEP 2: Download your 8 page study guide that includes everything from the video lesson in written form.

STEP 3: Watch my 30 minute video tutorial and take notes.

STEP 4: Complete three worksheets in three tenses. Check your work with the answer keys. These exercises will prepare you for the following steps.

STEP 5: Complete a fill in the blank exercise in which all three tenses are included. Check your work with the answer key.

STEP 6: This is a scrambled sentences activity that will require you to put ALL of the words provided in order to for correct sentences using negation. Be sure to use all of the words, and pay close attention to grammar while doing it. An answer key is provided.

STEP 7: Challenge your knowledge of simple negation NE...PAS with this set of 50 numbered practice cards to master your new skill in three tenses. Check your work with the numbered answer key. I encourage you to SPEAK your answers. One set has one card per page for easy online use with no printing. The second set has four cards per page if you prefer to print, cut out, and laminate for an easy to use activity that you can pull out at any time. I recommend punching holes and hooking them together with a ring!

STEP 8: Audio: Practice your listening comprehension with this recording using simple negation. The sentences you will hear are the same 50 you practiced with your set of cards in STEP 7. I will ask each question twice, you'll have some time to speak your answer using negation, then I will speak the answer.

STEP 9: Challenge your knowledge of ALL NINE WAYS to use negation with this set of 50 numbered practice cards to master your new skill in three tenses. Check your work with the numbered answer key. Again, I encourage you to SPEAK your answers.

STEP 10: Audio: Practice your listening comprehension with this recording with ALL NINE WAYS to use negation. The sentences you will hear are the same 50 you practiced with your set of cards in STEP 9. I will ask each question twice, you'll have some time to speak your answer using negation, then I will speak the answer.
