Every structure you learn gives you the ability to say a huge amount. Some structures are used more than others, but all the structures together make up the whole French language. Once you’ve learnt how a structure works, all you have to do is insert different words into the slots and you have a sentence.
This course introduces you to structure 7.
The seventh structure, as I said, is where we explore conjugating verbs into the conditional. The conditional is a tense we've looked at before, but only with infinitive carriers. However, when you conjugate other verbs into the conditional, you can use them to say what would happen.
In English, the conditional is as simple as putting the word would in front of the verb. In French, you have to change the ending of the verb instead. In this course, we'll learn all about forming the conditional with regular verbs and irregular verbs (those that don't follow the rules). We'll look at how it fits into the seventh structure, how to turn it from a question to a non-question, and how to make this tense negative.
Just like when we looked at structure five, we're going to look at ways we can use structure seven with other structures. By putting structures together, we open up a lot more of the language, and it allows us to express ourselves even better in French.
As always, all the lessons in this course have been broken down into three-minute chunks. That way, you can listen to one three-minute lesson every day without having to eat into your schedule. Obviously, you can watch more than one lesson per day, if you wish, but I would recommend you stop before you want to.
You'll get lots of practise questions in this course to really get to grips with this structure. So, let's start learning all about Structure 7 in French.
I hope you enjoy
