Week 2: Food - saying what you don’t like


In Week 1 you discovered some food vocabulary and how to express what you like using j’aime, j’adore, je préfère with the articles le, la, l’, les. This week you will find out how to express what you dislike.

Last week you also learned that, in French, you need to distinguish between masculine and feminine forms, and that means that you must learn each word with its gender. This week you’ll have the chance to practise this, learn more vocabulary and express your dislikes using a wider range of expressions. Finally, you will discover some French expressions related to food.

Have you got a good dictionary? You might need to refer to one for some of the activities this week, so think about how you plan to look words up when you need to. There are many online dictionaries available, or perhaps you prefer to use a printed version. Either way, find one that suits you and is reliable and accurate.

Last week you started to keep your own language notebook; this week you’ll be adding to it. In particular, we suggest you make notes on the grammar you’ll be studying and how you’re going to memorise vocabulary (we give you some tips). We will also give you advice on how to improve your speaking skills.
