...Remember: the construction of the negative forms in French works differently than in English because it is composed of two elements and because of its placement: the first element, ne (n’), comes in front of the verb; the second has to be placed after the verb....

ESSENTIAL VERBS - “s'appeler”

Learning and remembering this verb can help you introduce yourself and understand other people when they introduce themselves.

We are
going to look at the verb “TO CALL ONESELF” or “TO BE NAMED”: S'APPELER (présent de l'indicatif).

You will
notice that the verb has an -ER ending, but it does not belong to the same family of verbs as REGARDER. Use this verb to introduce yourself, and other people you know to French speaking people.

Notice
the ending of the "NOUS" and "VOUS" forms have just a single "L" in them, and the others all have a double "L". Why? No idea! Well, we know but… really, you don’t want to know for now.

This is
for pronunciation. Without the "double L" in the other words it would change the "L" sound in the word.

Listen to
the sound samples and see if you can hear the difference.

...When trying to determine which word to use with a country or continent (AU or EN), the only difficulty is in knowing its gender. Nearly all countries that end in “E” are feminine and the rest are masculine. There are just a few exceptions: le Cambodge, le Mexique, le Mozambique, le Zaïre et le Zimbabwe....

TOP TIP: Masculine and feminine countries

If a country ends in an "E" then it is always feminine! So use "EN" to say "IN" that country.

If the
country name doesn't end in a "E" then it is masculine and use "AU". If it is a masculine plural then you must use "AUX".

See the
examples which show how you can say something is IN the country.
