Leçon de français 3…Thank you Nelly (Crutchy)

This my third French lesson which Nelly has kindly written for me and emailed from the most appropriate place to receive a French lesson from…France.

These are the words which I attempted to learn in Koh Samui and Koh Tao whilst Nelly travelled with us. I am only slightly better than when I started but Nelly I appreciate every French related email you send me…So here’s to you 😉

Bonjour Ian,

Bon, je vais essayer d’écrire pour toi tous les mots féminins et masculins que nous avons vu ensemble!!

( Well, I’m gonna try to write for you all the feminin and masculin words we saw together!! )

I’m starting with the feminin ones (of course!)


Remember in french, in feminin, “The” is “LA”

“A” is “UNE”

Plurial of “LA”, we use “LES”

Plurial of “UNE”, we use “DES”

La mer = the sea (your favourite!!)

Une baleine = a wale

La mer = the sea

La lune = the moon

La pluie = the rain

L’eau = the water

Une vague = a wave , des vagues = waves

Une femme = a woman

Une fille = a girl

Une voiture = a car

Une cabane = a caban ( same same and not different! )

Une main = a hand

La jambe = the leg

La tête = the head

La peau = the skin

La bouche = the mouth

L’oreille = the ear

Les lèvres = the lips

( Les fesses = the bottom ! “mes petites fesses!!!”

La bite = the dick ….sorry again but feminin!! )

Une béquille = a crutch , des béquilles = crutches

Une sieste = a nap

Une bouteille = a bottle

Une bière = a beer

La vie = the life

La pastèque = the watermelon


In masculin, “The” is “LE”


” a” is ” UN

Plurial of “Le”, we use “LES”

Same as feminin for the plurial!


At the end of the some words, you’ll find a blue letter, wich means « silent letter » !
