The comedian Steve Martin in joking about his first visit to Paris once said: "The French are amazing — they have a different word for everything." But he was mistaken, as you will see. Many words in French look like English words.
FRENCH IS LIKE ENGLISH IN MANY WAYS
Are you aware that you already know many French words? You may not realize that you've been reading and speaking some French for years.
In English many obviously French words and expressions are in common use. Also, French and English have thousands of other shared words which, in their written form at least, are strikingly similar or even identical.
Thousands of words in English and French look alike. Many are spelled the same in both languages. Often the only difference is pronunciation. Some have only minor changes in spelling, and are easy to recognize.
It makes sense to begin by putting some of the already-learned skills of your first language English to good use in helping you begin to learn French as a second language.
OVERVIEW OF EASY FRENCH LESSONS
Easy French Lesson 1 begins by explaining how Easiest French is easiest because so many French words are similar to English words.
Easy French Lesson 2 introduces French words similar to English -- called Cognates.
Easy French Lesson 3 reveals English words that have been adopted into French, in the lesson English Words in French.
Easy 4 Lesson Four focuses on familiar French words that have been adopted into English, in the lesson French Words in English.
Easy French Lesson 5 reveals more French Words Spelled Like English.
Easy French Lesson 6 has words similar to English but with accent marks in French over some letters.
Easy French Lesson 7 has French words spelled somewhat like English, with part of the word spelled like English, but other parts spelled differently than English. Progressively it will show you French words spelled increasingly different from their English relatives, although still clearly recognizable as related.
Easy French Lesson 8 examines a different topic – a French word that looks similar to an English word but has a different meaning -- although it is somehow related enough to suggest the correct meaning of the French word.
For example, LIBRAIRIE in French means bookstore.
So ‘librairie’ in French is different from the English word it resembles (library) because it means bookstore, but similar in that both have to do with books, making it easier to remember.
Easy French Lesson 9 introduces French False Cognates that reveal how in some cases a treacherous French word looks like an English word but has a different meaning that can be misleading.
Easy French Lesson 10, French Pronunciation You Know from English, unlike preceding lessons about look-alikes, focuses on sound-alikes. These are French words you know how to pronounce, because there are some French words you already know how to pronounce in English.
Sound similarities are far fewer than spelling similarities. So this lesson will take you a step farther from the likenesses between the two languages toward the differences. This will prepare you for one of the logical next steps of learning -- listening to and then speaking French.
