Leçon 50: Describing Person’s Feature

Learning French With Elly_Describing Person's Feature in French

Bonjour à tous !

As you already know describing people physically (take a look to leçon 49), now let’s take a step further by describing person’s feature.

One day you might want to describe someone more precisely, in this case we don’t use the verbe être anymore but we have to use avoir.

Start with ==>> il a… / elle a…

Elle a les yeux bleus (She has blue eyes)

You wouldn’t say “She is blue eyes“, right? because it is gramatically wrong. Click this link parler_français for audio picture pronounciation and the list of adjective you might chose to use.

You have to remember that the adjectives are in plural form, because we never speak, for example, the single strand of hair when describing someone’s hair colour.

French Expression 4: J’en ai marre

Learning French With Elly_French Expression_J'en ai marre_I think I've had enough in French

Bonjour à tous !

Do you, by any chance, felt tired with something that you are facing about? I think many people understand that kind of feeling right? I believe you already know how to express it in English, and yes… in that situation you might say “OK, I think I’ve had enough with this!

In French, there’s also a way to say or express the same thing, it is “J’en ai marre!” It is a French expression wich means I think I’ve had enough or I’m sick of it.

Example:

Tu es toujours comme ça. J’en ai marre ! (You are still like that. I think I’ve had enough!)

The litteral meaning of J’en ai marre is I’m fed up, but in French it is used to express something that you already tired of and you are done with the certain thing. The synonim of this expression could be J’en ai assez.
