2 Saying your name and nationality
Now have a go at Activity 2.
Listen to a variety of people giving their nationality and match their names to the correct nationality.
Using the following two lists, match each numbered item with the correct letter.
- 1 = c
- 2 = a
- 3 = b
- 4 = e
- 5 = d
You already know a few nationalities and understand that if the writer is French (male), you would say ‘français’ and if the writer was French (female) you would say (‘française’). However, if the nationality already ends in -e, like ‘belge’ (Belgian), you don’t add a further -e for the feminine form. This means that the spelling is the same for masculine and feminine.
