Unit 1

Masculine and Feminine ( Gender)

French all nouns are either masculine or feminine. This is called the gender of a noun. Before a
masculine word use un for a or an eg- un crayon( a pencil) . Before a feminine noun use une for a or an
eg- une trousse ( a pencil case).

Plural Nouns

One way to make the nouns plural in French add an –s to the end of the nouns. But this is not always the
case. eg- un crayon – des crayons.

Write the plurals-

Un stylo----

Une trousse----

Un cahier---

Un portable----
