This is an actual problem of mine. Most of my pet elephants have a drinking problem ( Especially Dave) and i wish to confront them about it ( Dave's wife has already left him and he doesnt get to see his two daughters). Sadly they only speaks french. I wish to tell them that i care and i want to help them but i cant remember the french word for drinking. Is there an easy way to remember it? Like a word that sounds like it? Please help.
First, awesome comment :) and second how about a simple sentence like this "your noir cat needs to boire to live" or something like that. Just making up weird but easy to remember sentences can help you remember words. Another suggestion is looking at the word everyday and practice using it. This method usually help words stay in your long term memory instead of short term. Hope my suggests help.
"Nos" is "our" for plural items (nos elephants = our elephants). 'Notre' is our for single items (notre elephant = our elephant). 'Mon' is 'mine' if there is just one thing (ie - mon livre = my book). 'Mes' is 'mine' if there is more than one thing (ie - mes livres = my books). Of course then if the noun is feminine it changes to ma (for singular - ie ma robe = my dress) but stays mes for plural (mes robes = my dresses). Hope that helps!
