Household 2 is the sixty-fourth skill in the French language tree (assuming read left to right). It has six lessons, and the skill teaches more vocabulary related to the house and the items commonly found inside.

Grammar Notes[]

Some pronominal verbs (see Verbs: Reflexive) are used to express the passive voice instead of putting those verbs into the passive voice:

  • il se dit = it is said
  • La chambre se nettoie = the room is cleaned
  • Le tapis se lave = the rug is washed

The latter two are found in this skill, but many other verbs use this construction.
