  1. I am a lower intermediate French learner trying to introduce reading into my program to accelerate my french learning. The problem that I am facing however is that fact that most French books seem to be written in Le Passe Simple which is a tense that is redundant to spoken French. While I appreciate the need to understand this tense eventually to be able to appreciate French in its fullest I am still struggling to fully grasp the spoken tenses and not ready to add an additional (“unnecessary“) tense to my load as well as, more importantly, deprive myself the opportunity to learn the tenses that I really need to learn. So I come here seeking advice on where I can find a selection of books written in “spoken French”. I imagine that I am not alone in this scenario and most beginner or intermediate learners want to focus on the spoken tenses when choosing their reading material. Any advice is appreciated. Merci!
  2. Hallo Zusammen, ich beschäftige mich z.Z. mit Going-to-Future, Will-Future, Simple Present, Present Continuous. Dazu mache ich eine kleine Übung, bei der ich entscheiden soll, ob die Zeit (speziell Going-to-Future, Will-Future richtig verwendet wurden). Da ich leider keine Lösung habe, wollte ich euch Fragen, ob ich richtig liege. Ich habe hinter jeden Satz geschrieben, welche Zeit verwendet wurde, ob richtig oder falsch und welche Zeit eigentlich richtig wäre (falls nötig). Was meint Ihr! Vielen Dank und viele Grüße! 1. I’m going to eat at my friends’ house this evening. Going-to-Future, falsch, Present Continuous 2. Look at that man on the roof. He’ll fall! Will-Future, richtig, 3. These black clouds tell me it’s going to rain. Going-to-Future, richtig 4. The train will leave at seven o’clock. Will-Future, falsch, Simple Present 5. Next Sunday I will play golf with Bill Clinton. Will-Future, falsch, Going-to-Future 6. Italy will win the World Cup in 2014. Will-Future, richtig 7. I’m washing my hair tonight. Present Continuous, richtig 8. This year I’m going to read more. Going-to-Future, falsch, Will-Future 9. What will you do tonight? Will-Future, falsch, Present Continuous 10.I’m never smoking again. Simple Present, falsch, Will-Future 11.I go to university next year. Simple Present, falsch
  3. Hello. i am wondering about this scenario: “What are you looking at?” “Oh, I am looking at the cover of the song we were listening to last night.” Can I use “was listening to” instead of “listened to”
  4. I am wondering what is the difference bewteen the passé récent (in the past - with imparfait) and the passé antérieur. I know they have different construction and antérieur is far more formal. Is there any difference in meaning or they are just interchangeable and both can be compared to the past perfect?
  5. found the word 'saß' in a text I was reading, it translated to 'sat'? But when I congugate sitzen, I get the past tense as gessessen. Can someone explain? Is it in a different tense?
