Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Yasmine: And I'm Yasmine.
Eric: And welcome to Must-Know French Sentence Structures, Season 1, Lesson 20. Offering a Polite Invitation.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a sentence pattern for making a polite invitation.
PATTERN
Eric: For example, "Would you like to join our team?"
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous joindre notre équipe?
Yasmine: [slow] Aimeriez-vous joindre notre équipe?
Eric: The pattern for making a polite invitation has 3 elements. First, the polite form of "would you like to."
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous.
Eric: Second, the verb "to join" in the infinitive form.
Yasmine: joindre.
Eric: Third, the complement, in this case "our team."
Yasmine: notre équipe.
Eric: Altogether, we have "Would you like to join our team?"
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous joindre notre équipe? [slow] Aimeriez-vous joindre notre équipe? [normal] Aimeriez-vous joindre notre équipe?
Eric: First you have the expression "would you like to," followed by a verb in the infinitive form, and then a complement.
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous joindre notre équipe?
Eric: So remember, to make a polite invitation, first start with the expression "would you like to," followed by a verb in the infinitive form, and then the thing you want to invite someone to.
Eric: Here's another example meaning, "Would you like to come to the party?" First, the polite form of "would you like to."
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous.
Eric: Second, the verb "to come" in the infinitive form.
Yasmine: venir.
Eric: Third, a complement, in this case "to the party."
Yasmine: à la soirée.
Eric: Altogether we have...
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous venir à la soirée? [slow] Aimeriez-vous venir à la soirée? [normal] Aimeriez-vous venir à la soirée?
Eric: "Would you like to come to the party?"
[pause]
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous venir à la soirée?
Eric: How do you say - "Would you like to have lunch together?" To give you a hint, "to have lunch together" is...
Yasmine: déjeuner ensemble. [slow] déjeuner ensemble. [normal] déjeuner ensemble.
Eric: "Would you like to have lunch together?"
[pause]
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous déjeuner ensemble? [slow] Aimeriez-vous déjeuner ensemble? [normal] Aimeriez-vous déjeuner ensemble?
[pause]
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous déjeuner ensemble?

Eric: Let's review the sentences from this lesson. I’ll give you the English equivalent of the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud in French. Here we go.
Eric: "Would you like to join our team?"

Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous joindre notre équipe?
[pause]
Yasmine: Aimeriez-vous joindre notre équipe?
Eric: "Would you like to come to the party?"
[pause]
