Youtube French Lesson of the Week - Expressions with Avoir

I have found it is quite common for
students in Intermediate French Immersion to make mistakes with expressions using avoir.  For example, a student might say "Je suis chaud" to say "I feel hot" when they should be saying "J'ai chaud" instead.

Below is a Youtube video about expressions used with the verb "avoir" (to have).  I have added it to my playlist called "grammaire" (French Grammar).  For further practice, encourage your child to write the French expressions out on flash cards and write the English translation on the opposite side.  If your child has a mobile device, he/she can install this handy Flashcard making app to practice their avoir expressions.  I created a set of flashcards with ease using this app.
