Avoir practice for beginners: J’ai

Avoir: listening & reading practice

Focus on the 1st person:  J’ai
comes from:  Je + ai 

J’ai  =    I have 
J’ai un chien  =  I have a dog

Sometimes ‘I HAVE‘ is used in French when in English we would say ‘I AM‘:

J’ai (I have) faim        =  I AM hungry
J’ai (I have) huit ans   =  I AM eight

Try to picture the idea of ‘having hunger’ or to have years that belong to you ..!
