Adverbs of time

If you want to improve the quality of your French sentence then why not throw in an adverb of time. If you are talking in the present tense then put in a maintenant. It probably won't add any information but it gives you thinking time and if you say it in a French accent it can make you sound a little more French.

If you want to improve your French the worst thing to do is say nothing. Be prepared to make erreurs but you can't go far wrong with words like souvent, normalement and de temps en temps. If you are talking about yourself then how often do you do something, find the appropriate word in French and use it.

If you have any hint of an English accent then most French people pick up on this and try to speak English. If you want to learn French then try to keep speaking French and get in there quickly with an adverb of time.

A bientôt
