Pets vocabulary , plurals and revision of verbs as well as use of Il y a / Voilà

Let us look at plurals again:
Definite articles

La coccinelle (f.)= The ladybird
Les coccinelles= The ladybirds

When we wish to say ‘ there is’ or ‘there are’ we are either going to use ‘Voilà’ or ‘Il y a’ depending on whether we are pointing or stating.
There’s the horse!
Voilà le cheval (pointing)
Voilà les chevaux=There are the horses (pointing)

About angeleannandrews

I am Anglo Maltese and live in Surrey with my husband and son. I have been teaching languages for almost 30 years. Having been trained in Anthropology, I have social issues at heart. When I was nearing 50, I wished to use my talents to make money for charity. I have created 50 photo-poems which will be featuring on this site. If you wish to encourage my effort, please give a small donation to ShelterBox http://www.justgiving.com/user/23773460 after reading my poems. Many people are out there actually tackling the world's problems. We may not be able to join them but every little helps.Thanks a million! Angie
