hi everybody Candace here welcome to ask a teacher but I answer your most common French questions the question for this lesson is what are the different ways you can make a negative sentence in French unlike English negative sentences in French have two parts the most basic negative sentences use new and pas and put the verb in between them for example I'm going is Ravi so I'm not going is univita you can make more complex negative sentences by using the with different negative words let's go over some examples so you can learn how to make negative sentences in French correctly please on it's unusually means more but together with know the phrase becomes no more for example Geneva pre means I'm not going anymore there are also negative words in French that can be used on their own or with no for example let's look at this short conversation your friend asks you to feed you skinny where do you go skiing in the winter you can respond no Geneva Jame no I never go hear the word Jame meaning never is used with without know your response would be no Jame no never another negative word yeah which means nothing can be used by itself or with no like in this example your friend asks kiss catch a fish Audrey me Nene what are you doing today if you're responding with no your answer would be Jennifer Audrey I'm not doing anything today without no it will be just real nothing one of the most common combinations is the banker uncle means again but in Geneva banker it becomes I'm not going yet you can also you use per uncle on its own to say not yet for example triplet are you ready bunker not yet another good expression is petty - that means not at all for example someone asks you it is of two years wha did you go out last night you can respond no Peduto no not at all remember French only uses two negative particles in a sentence if you use free the sentence becomes something like the double negative in English for example if you say univita Jame mini-me I don't never go then that means that you do go sometimes but it sounds unnatural okay I hope that makes more sense now if you have any more questions please leave them in the comments below and I try to answer them I know - see you soon
