Quick Grammar Points:

1. negation: "elle a" (she has) - elle n'a pas (she doesn't have).
Note: the negative particles, ne ... pas go around the verb.
2. reflexive verb: se promener (to stroll, take a walk) - ils se promènent (they stroll).
Note: "se promener" is reflexive in French but the English equivalent "to stroll" is not.
