Learn to say your emotions in French
Today we are learning about how to express emotions in French!
A recent video of ours focused on expressing likes and dislikes and today we want to show your little ones how to say how they are feeling, so we are really making sure their voices are heard…as if they weren’t enough already!
We have also added a few adjectives of character, I think the phrase ‘He/she is naughty’ is a good one to know!
Take a look at our video below to see Tonton expressing his emotions in French!
Here is what you heard:
Je suis excité I am excited
Il est excité He is excited
Je suis timide I am shy
Il est timide He is shy
Je suis en colère I am angry
Il est en colère He is angry
Je suis heureux I am happy
Il est heureux He is happy
Je suis gentile I am kind
Il est gentile He is kind
Je suis triste I am kind
Il est triste He is kind
Je suis fatigué I am tired
Il est fatigué He is tired
Je suis coquin I am cheeky/naughty/a rascal
Il est coquin He is cheeky/naughty/a rascal
Don’t forget that some of these emotions in French change spelling and pronunciation in the feminine form:
Je suis excitée (no change in pronunciation)
Je suis heureuse
Je suis gentille (no change in pronunciation)
Je suis fatiguée (no change in pronunciation)
Je suis coquine
So we hope you and your children have fun copying these phrases and the impressive acting by Tonton!
Let us know if you like the video and if it inspires any language play at home!
