VERBS - EXTRA OR FEWER WORDS

Some verbs in French "leave out" a word you might expect to find in the English translation. For example 'chercher' means 'to look for' (ie there's no "for" word required to be attached to it).

So we have 'I look for the dog.' - 'Je cherche le chien.' There are more verbs like this.

chercher - to look for He looks for the cat. Il cherche le chat.
attendre - to wait for She waits for the teacher. Elle attends le professeur.
payer - to pay for I pay for the cakes. Je paie les gateaux.
regarder - to look at We look at (watch) the television. Nous regardons la télévision.
écouter - to listen to They are listening to the radio. Ils écoutent le radio.

In contrast, some verbs in English don't need 'an extra word' - but the corresponding French verbs require one. For example, 'I telephone my friend.' - 'Je téléphone à mon amie.'

téléphoner - to telephone He telephones his friend. Il téléphone à son ami.
obéir - to obey She obeys her parents. Elle obéit à ses parents.
jouer - to play He plays football. Il joue au [à+le] football.
plaire - to please The dog pleases the boys. Le chien plaît aux [à+les] garçons.
ressembler - to resemble The girl resembles her brother. La fille ressemble à son frère.
