Learn the translation on page 165. Les quatre saisons sont: le printemps, l'été, l'automne, l'hiver. Dans quelle saison sommes-nous, au printemps, en été, en automne ou en hiver?-Nous sommes en hiver. Qu'est-ce que vous faites en été? Je vais à la campagne; je joue, je lis et je m'amuse beaucoup. Quelquefois nous allons au bord de la mer, et nous nous amusons beaucoup sur la plage, avec le sable et les coquillages. En hiver je vais à l'école et je travaille beaucoup. Nous avons beaucoup de leçons à étudier, et beaucoup d'exercises à écrire. Il y a de la neige en hiver; il fait froid, j'ai froid; faites du feu; faites un bon feu. Le feu est éteint; allumez le feu; voici une allumette; maintenant il fait chaud, j'ai chaud. Il y a des fleurs au printemps; il y a des fruits en été et en automne. En hiver les jours sont courts; il fait sombre, il fait nuit de bonne heure.
