Level A1 - French partitive articles and other ways to use DE

Learn how and when to use French partitive articles and many other ways to use DE

French partitive articles and other forms of DE complete lesson - DE LA - DE L' - DU - DES - DE - D'

It is difficult to know when to use partitive articles and the correct form of DE when you don't know all of the rules and when you've not had enough practice.

This lesson focuses on using DE or D’ before adjectives that come before the noun, the partitive with masculine, feminine, singular, and plural nouns, using DE or D’ after different forms of negation, using DE after certain verbs when followed by an infinitive, and using DE or D’ with expressions of quantity.


This lesson is included in my money saving PACKAGE OF BUNDLED FRENCH LESSONS.


Included in this lesson:

  • 30 minute video lesson
  • Printable lesson guide
  • Worksheet: Contracted articles vs. partitive articles
  • 100 practice cards with answer key
  • QUIZLET study set link

Once you've watched my video lesson on ALL of the different ways to use DE, use your set of 100 numbered cards to master your new French skill! This particular grammar lesson is one that tends to come back to haunt you once you've made it to the intermediate or even advanced level..... UNLESS you learn the rules from the very beginning.

These cards will have you using all of the different forms of DE that you will have learned during the lesson.

Keep your stack of practice cards ready to pull out at any time! I encourage you to keep them around and review them once a month or so. You know what they say, use it or lose it!

If you prefer a paperless version, I’ve included a PDF with only one card per page to use on tablets or computers.

I'm Jennifer, and I'm a French teacher. I didn't grow up speaking French. I started learning French as an adult, so I know exactly how frustrating it can be when just trying to listen and respond seems impossible. I was fortunate enough to have CARING teachers who helped me and never seemed to be frustrated with me. When I started teaching French 20+ years ago, I was again fortunate to have mentors who showed me that CARING about my students and understanding their difficulties is the only way to help. I've been exactly where you are, and I know how to help you.

I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and French, then taught French for a year and moved to France for a year before pursuing and earning a Master of Arts degree in French. I taught French at Saint Louis University High School, a Jesuit college preparatory school for young men, for 14 years. A while before relocating to the South of France, I began teaching French online via Skype. I am now teaching French online full time and I also give immersion classes and guided city visits in both languages in Béziers, France.

It’s my job to guide you and help you along on your journey to learn French. Learning should be fun, and I will make sure that enjoy yourself as you improve your listening, writing, reading, and most importantly your speaking skills. Over the years I have developed many creative strategies to guarantee your progress. All students have different learning styles, different strengths and weaknesses, and different levels. One of my first jobs as your teacher is to provide you with an approach that will suit your learning style so that you will get the most out of your classes as possible.
