Lesson Transcript

Jessi: Top 25 French Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 3: Where do you live? in French In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for French learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question Where do you live? In French this is
Ingrid: Où habitez-vous?
The first word in the question is
Ingrid: Où
Jessi: meaning Where in English.
Ingrid: (Slow, by syllable) Où
Jessi: Listen again and repeat.
Ingrid: Où
{Pause}
Jessi: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Ingrid: habitez
Jessi: meaning live.
Ingrid: (Slow, by syllable) habitez
Jessi: Now repeat.
Ingrid: habitez
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Ingrid: Où habitez
{pause}
And after that
Ingrid: vous
Jessi: meaning you.
Ingrid: (Slow, by syllable) vous
Jessi: Now repeat.
Ingrid: vous
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Ingrid: Où habitez vous
{pause}
Jessi: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Where do you live??
Ingrid: J'habite à New-York
Jessi: "I live in New York.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Ingrid: (Slow) J'habite à New-York
{pause}
adverb
n/a
Jessi: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Ingrid: J'
Jessi: which is the contracted version of the word for I.
Ingrid: (Slow, by syllable) J'
Jessi: Now repeat
Ingrid: J'
{Pause}
Jessi: And next
Ingrid: habite
meaning live.
Ingrid: (Slow, by syllable) habite
Jessi:Now repeat.
Ingrid: habite
{Pause}
Jessi: And after that
Ingrid: à
meaning something like in.
Ingrid: (Slow, by syllable) à
Jessi:Now repeat.
Ingrid: à
{Pause}
Jessi: Next is
Ingrid: New-York
which is New York.
Ingrid: (Slow, by syllable) New-York
Jessi:Now repeat.
Ingrid: New-York
{Pause}
Jessi: Listen to the speaker say, I live in New York., and then repeat.
Ingrid: J'habite à New-York
{pause}
Jessi: To expand on the pattern, replace New York with Paris.
Ingrid: Paris
Jessi: Paris
Ingrid: (slow) Paris (regular) Paris
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Paris
Ingrid: J'habite à Paris
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace New York. Say I live in Paris.

Salut @Margaret Tinck,


Thank you for commenting. Please try to download the Transcript PDF and open it with a software or an App. You can review the text this way while you're listening to our audio.


Regarding the keyboard, that can indeed be stressful, we understand that. Currently, our site does not have a built-in French keyboard yet but I will forward your thoughts to the correspondent team who make decisions about how to design the structure and the lessons on FrenchPod101.com. For the time being, you could consider using online French keyboards such as the one offered by Google Translate, or installing a French keyboard to your computer and learn how to write characters such as è, â, ù, etc.


Good luck with your French studies and if you have any more questions or suggestions for us, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Levente

Sorry but I can’t get the audio and the transcript to play at the same time. What am I doing wrong?

Tried to do the survey but the keyboard did not appear so that I could not answer the questions properly🤔
