Being a beginner in French and alone in the country can be a scary experience. You feel that people are speaking very fast and also overwhelmed, most of the time when trying to express yourself…
Here are three sentences in French that you can apply in many situations ( at the bakery, at the Café or at the market). Learn them by heart and it will save you from a lot of struggle!
- Je voudrais ( I would like)- un croissant,- un café, -un kilo de tomates, s’il vous plait. Je voudrais + article and noun+ s’il vous plait.
- Je vais prendre un croissant,-un café,-un kilo de tomates. Je vais prendre ( I am going to take) + article+ noun
- Or use the structure article + noun+ s’il vous plait! Un croissant, s’il vous plait!
Got it? Very easy indeed. All you have to do now is to go practice it!
