Self-talk French

If you're learning French, there may not be that many people to practice with. But you can always practice with yourself. I have a short explanation of what self-talk is about here. Below are some expressions you can review mentally as you go about your daily routine if you're learning French so that it becomes more a part of your life. Where there appears "..." you can fill in with your native language or look up what you're most likely to fill in the blank with.

Je veux manger... (I want to eat...)
Je veux boire... (I want to drink...)
Il y a beaucoup/peu de gens. (There are many/few people.)
Maintenant je cherche un verre de l'eau. (Now I'm going for a glass of water.)
Je suis occupé(e). (I am busy.)*
Il fait chaud/froid aujourd'hui. (It is hot/cold today.)
Il pleut. (It is raining.)
J'achète ceci. (I am buying this.)
Combien coûte-t-il ? (How much is it?)
Merci. (Thanks.)
*Add the "e" if you are female. There is no change in pronunciation.
