From Mme Vines: What Are Students Learning in French?

C'est l'hiver! It's winter!

This week, students will answer the question, "Est-ce que tu aimes l'hiver?"

If a student likes winter, they would respond by saying, "Oui, j’aime l’hiver." If a student doesn’t like winter, they would respond by saying, “Non, je n’aime pas l’hiver”.

To add more detail, we add “parce-que” (because). For instance….

J’aime l’hiver parce-que c’est amusant de jouer dans la neige.

Je n’aime pas l’hiver parce que c’est toujours froid!

French to English Translations

Est-ce que tu

Do you







c’est amusant de jouer dans la neige

it’s fun to play in the snow

C’est froid

It’s cold

Maintenant, (now) here is a challenge…can you answer the question, est-ce que tu aimes l’hiver?
