To share with you

Continuing with this song, hopefully you can see why I shared it with you? And if you don’t believe me about all the verbs, there’s present, future, and past in this verse. Plus the simple counting. And multiple object constructions. So yeah, chock full of grammar, even though it’s for kids. You’re welcome.

Seriously though, I’ve got to build up my foundation to work on to some other podcasts. Some of them are tough, and I’d love to do more with Manger and Transfert, two that I’m most interested in. But they are quite challenging for me.

It’s not just their speed, it’s the way words continuously flow together. Even a word like “enfants” is lost to me. I just went and did that episode of Transfert. Yeah. It’s way harder than this kid’s song, but let’s work up to it, together. We’ll have harder stuff coming soon.

J’ai cinq abricots
Que je mangerai bientôt
J’ai six chocolats
A partager avec toi
J’ai sept petits pains
pour le goûter de demain
J’ai huit gros bonbons
Que m’a donnés mon tonton
Un deux trois quatre
Cinq six sept huit
Je sais compter jusqu’à huit
Je sais compter jusqu’à huit

I have five apricots
That I will eat soon
I have six chocolates
To share with you
I have seven buns
For tomorrow’s snack
I’ve got eight big candies
That my uncle gave me
One two three four
Five six seven eight
I can count to eight
I can count to eight
