Learning to Speak French by Learning to Use French Phrases Part IV

 


Visitors: 165

Learning a new language can be very scary for many people. I have many friends from every part of the word, and I don't know why, but people from the United State like to speak French like crasy. Some of them intend to live in France and to buy a house. Then here's an idea of what their need to say.

I want a house to live in permanently: Je cherche une résidence principale.

I am looking for a holiday home: Je cherche une résidence secondaire.

I'm looking for a flat in town: Je cherche un appartement en ville.

I'm looking for a house in the country: Je cherche une maison à la campagne.

Do you have any houses by the sea? Vous avez des maisons au bord de la mer?

We are looking for a farm: Nous cherchons une ferme.

We are looking for a property with a large south-facing garden: Nous cherchons une propriété avec un grand jardin très bien exposée.

We are looking for shop premises: Nous cherchons des locaux commerciaux.

We want a house that is ready to live in: On voudrait une maison habitable de suite.

We want a new house: Nous cherchons une maison neuve.

We want a house for renovation: Nous cherchons une maison à restaurer.

I would like something a little bigger/smaller: Je voudrais quelque chose un peu plus grand/petit.

I would like something that is closer to a village: Je voudrais quelque chose qui se situe plus près du village.

We want a house with at least four bedrooms: Nous cherchons une maison avec cinq pieces minimum.

I want a fitted kitchen: Je voudrais une cuisine équipée.

Our budget is €100,000: Nous avons un budget de 100,000 euros.

Above all, we want somewhere quiet: Nous voulons le calme avant tout.

The house is very close (literally two steps) from the beach: La maison est à deux pas de la plage.

The house is five minutes from the village: La maison est à cinq minutes du village.
