These sheets introduce expanded vocabulary lessons, including shapes, fruits and vegetables, clothing, animals, and more.

When it comes to learning French vocabulary words there are a bunch of different techniques that can be very helpful for you to learn them fast. Not only fast, but they will stick with you. While many teachers start by teaching whole words, we tend to encourage you to learn French root words. You can do this by learning words that share the same root at the same time. It often is helpful to learn French/English cognates early on in your learning process. Cognates are words that are very similar between two languages. Some straight examples are the words: animal and ambulance. These words are spelled the same and pronounced the same in both languages. Then you have cognates that are really close in spelling and pronunciation, but there is a subtle difference in both. This can be found in words like: vocabulary (English) : vocabulaire (French) and artist (English) : Artiste (French). A good method to learn how to pronunciate words is to listen as much as possible. You can watch YouTube clips that have French/English speakers to learn all the little nuances between the languages.

One of the biggest advantages to learning a foreign language is to be able to get the food and drink you want, whether you are ordering at a restaurant or shopping at a local grocery store. Similarly, you also want to be able to dress appropriately for the weather and whatever activities you have planned. These sheets cover more involved activities and items you would use on a daily basis. Since France is famous for its wonderful food, you definitely want to be able to identify the dishes and ingredients correctly.
