Exercice 1 – J’ai soif

J’ai envie de boire quelque chose, mais je ne sais pas quoi.  J’aime bien boire de l’eau, mais j’ai envie d’autre chose aujourd’hui.  Je vais regarder dans le frigo.  Peut-être qu’on a du jus de pomme.  J’adore le jus de pomme.  Je n’aime pas boire du soda parce que c’est mauvais pour la santé.  Il ne faut pas boire trop de jus non plus.  Ma tante mange trop de sucre et elle a des problèmes de santé.  


1 Qu’est-ce que j’aime bien boire?
2 Qu’est-ce que je cherche dans le frigo?
3 Pourquoi est-ce que je n’aime pas boire du soda?
4 Pourquoi est-ce qu’il ne faut pas boire trop de jus?
5 Pourquoi est-ce que ma tante a des problèmes de santé?


1 J’aime bien boire de l’eau.
2 Je cherche du jus de pomme dans le frigo.
3 Le soda est mauvais pour la santé.
4 Il y a beaucoup de sucre dans le jus.
5 Ma tante a des problèmes de santé parce qu’elle mange trop de sucre. 

Translation: I’m thirsty

I feel like drinking something, but I don’t know what.  I really like to drink water, but I feel like something else today.  I am going to look in the fridge.  Maybe we have some apple juice.  I love apple juice.  I don’t like to drink soda because it is not healthy.  You must not drink too much juice either.  My aunt eats too much sugar and she has health problems.
