1

Quel âge as-tu ?

How old are you ?

In French you say "to HAVE a number of years".

2

J'ai 25 ans.

I'm 25 years old.

Literally: I have 25 years.

3

Parlez-vous français ?

Do you speak French ?

Another way to ask the same questions is:
“Est-ce que vous parlez français ?” or
“Vous parlez français ?” (rising intonation)

4

Oui, je parle un peu.

Yes, I speak a bit.

 

5

Non, Je ne parle pasfrançais.

No, I don't speak French.

To make a negative French sentence, you must follow the "ne + verb
+ pas
" structure. In spoken French you can omit the "ne" word. Eg.
Je parle pas français. J'ai pas mes clés (I don't have my keys).

6

Tu parles bien anglais.

You speak well English .

The "s" you must add while conjugating (the second person singular, that is you (tu) ). This "s" in "parles" is silent, so you don't pronounce it. 

7

Je te présente Marie. C'est une amie.

Let me introduce you to Marie.
She is a friend of mine.

Lit: I introduce you to Marie. It is a friend.

8

Enchanté !

Nice to meet you !

Lit: Delighted (by meeting you). You may also hear: "Ravi." or "Ravi de faire votre connaissance." 

9

Comment allez-vous ?

How do you do ?

A polite way of asking how someone is.

10

Ca va, merci.

I'm fine, thank you.

Lit: It goes. You can also say "Je vais bien." (I'm going (doing) well.)

11

Tout va bien, merci.

Everything is fine, thank you.

Tout is conjugated as the 3rd person singular. 

12

Je ne comprends pas.

I don't understand.

The verb "comprendre": to understand.

13

C'est un plaisir de faire votre connaissance.

It's really nice to meet you.

Lit: It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance.

14

Je suis américain. (man)

Je suis américaine. (woman)

I am American.

In general, you need to add “e” to an adjective to get the feminine form. There are two genders in French: masculine and feminine. Thus: "unaméricain" but "uneaméricaine", "un ami anglais" but "une amiefrançaise".  

15

Vous êtes français

Vous êtes française.

You are French.

In formal speech to be polite with people you don’t know (adults), you need to use “Vous”, the plural form of the personal pronoun, instead of the informal "tu" reserved for the people you know, your friends and the people younger than you in general.

16

Tu es américain et elle est anglaise.

You are French.

Between friends, kids and people you know you use “tu” (you).

17

J’habite à New York.

I live in New York.

Verb “habiter” means “to live”. Je + habite becomes
“J’habite”, the “h” is silent here.

18

Où habitez-vous ?

Where do you live ?

The formal way of asking questions in French is to
switch the verb and the subject. But there are other
more common ways to ask questions: by adding "est-ce que"
or simply raising your intonation ?

19

On habite aux Etats-Unis.

Nous habitons aux Etas-Unis.

We live in the United States.

“On” is the common ways of saying “we” or “nous” in French.
In spoken French you will hear "on" instead of "nous" 99% of
the time.

20

Je m’appelle John.

My name is John.

Literally “I call myself John”. “s’appeler” (se appeler) is one of the “pronominal verbs” which are very common in Romance languages.
“S’appeler" is also the verb with the “er” ending, the simplest and the most common type of verb to conjugate. Look at the difference between this sentence (7) and the next one (8) in terms of conjugation. You need to add "s" in the second person singular. The pronunciation stays the same however. 

21

Comment t’appelles-tu ?

Comment tu t'appelles(intonation)

What's your name ?

Literally “How do you call yourself ?” te + appelles = t'appelles. There can't be two vowels next to each other. It makes the pronunciation easier. 

22

D’où viens-tu ?

Where do you come from ? /
Where are you from ?

“Tu viens” comes from the verb “venir”, to come.

23

Je viens du Royaume Uni.

I come from the United Kingdom.

“venir de” (to come from) + le Royaume Uni = venirdu
Royaume Uni. So, "de + le" = du.

Dear Language Aspirants,

How to choose a foreign language depends on many factors:

1. For employment in India: 

India remains a big market for offshore/outsourcing processes. The MNC's having their business/clients in non-English speaking require employees with respective Foreign Language.

German:- Germany being the Economical & Business hub for entire Europe provides lot more employment as outsourced to India. It covers Automobile industry (Merc, BMW, Audi, VW, Porsche), world's third largest manufacturing nation in medical technology production; also huge opportunities in mechanical & plant engineering industry.

Japanese & Chinese: For Business & Technological advancement, there are many companies having tie-ups with Japan & China. But as learning these languages require to learn a completely different script, it is obviously little tough, and may not be chosen as a HOBBY to learn.

2. For Further Studies: 

German, French & Spanish - any one of them can be chosen for studies in Europe. In Germany the cost of Studies is negligible due to Govt. funded studies.

3. For Travel & Leisure: 

Of course French & Spanish are the ones to choose for this purpose. Both of them are the topmost languages spoken in the world after English

 

Disclaimer: This is my personal opinion on choosing a foreign language to learn. The students/candidates should do their own research for their final decision.

Le titre "L' orage catastrophique que vous avez eprouvé d'une soirée / La tempête terifique".
 
La relation entre nature phisique et sa inhabitante est profonde d'ailleur très intégale. La environ naturelle ouvre et donne tous les objects qui sont trops bienveillants et effective pour leur survivre. Elle nurir la vie d'animaux ou l'être humain du temps primitive. En core, ses resources propre, eliments structurales, beauté l'ambience, bonté etc nos bénit autante et complète toujours. Pour c'eux choses, nous sommes l'oblige de gratuit .
 
Mais à la fois, cette nature agréable peut partenir une catastrophe du mal en soudain à cause de géographique ou météologique. En fait, l'ingrédeant constructif et déstructif, Ils on coexsiste d'en côte a côte. Voici, l'orage, est une forme fatale de nature adorable.
 
Bien etendu, ça va je peut envisager que une fois de jadis quand je m'obtenais cet experience terible dans sa prise macabre. Il y avait les jours d'été. L'atmosphère qui faisait un peu chaude, maussade et humide de midi. Et, à vers soire, la pléthore nauge de danse et gris s'essemblait et couvrait le ciel brilli tante vite. Toute après, une sombre noire engloutait ce jour clair en nuit de prochaine. Il semble l'oracle placide devant une combate colossale.
 
Avec les brûlants de tonnerre grave,elle bruille grincement. Elle frappeait d'éclat argent que fallait une scie poignante crevassera le ciel rouge encore et il tombait de sur nous, d'hasard. Le vent vanquait violent et aussitôt, un coup de severe retenait le pouvoir puissant de tempête mythologique que ne jamais déjà-vue. Comme-ci, on apparait des diables ou Titans en masse, ils ataque la terre en garrision au but de detruire-lui, en efait.

La vitesse et force d'orage gagnait le plus forté amplitude avec sa horride proportion. Ça cyclone tourbillon écrasait ou voler chaque chose solide au milieu sa route. Abondé des arbes haut et gros, les tours d'éléctrique, des pierre tas, les murs de bamboux s'tembaient sur là bas comme une fueille sèche qu'ils n'avaient pas un peu de poids. Les petit cottage, les cabin de bois ou foin, les ferme de bétail s'effondre à sort de maison de fachier. Des bêtes et oiseaux, ils béleint, courreint et crient d'influire panique. 'Les misérables' se lance par tout, çà- y- là. On fait que le destin de mourrir qui se proche.

De puis, l'eau de puie commençait de tomber lentement et ainsi, on samblait que cette calamité et colère de nature venait de cesser lentement. Cependent, la texture et vue des environs et paysage kaleidoscope qui mets lequel en débris, la ruine morbide, devatation de richesses et produits. C'est la picture ineffable et sporadique. Dans façon, la nature protéctrice peut camouflager la forme déstructrice donc!
