In this section, I’m going to show you the French words and vocabulary used to talk about the body.
I don’t know if you have noticed, but the topic of the human body is almost always present in vocabulary training materials intended for beginners. French is definitely not an exception to this, and the reason for this is quite simple — From the moment they can see, hear and talk, French kids learn to sing “Tête, épaules, genoux et pieds”, the equivalent for “head, shoulders, knees and toes”. You’ll agree with me that it’s quite a catchy tune, which will make children (and adults alike) go nuts if you know how to pace the song on a faster cadence.
Learning about our own body is perhaps one of the most important self-doscovery steps we had to make make as human beings. Doing so in French, I hope, will give you the same excitement.
- You are a complete or false beginner of French (although students at higher levels can still benefit from practicing with flashcards and from listening to the audio clips).
- You want to be able to describe in French almost every part of your body with accuracy.
- You don’t necessarily have French-speaking conversation partners readily available to start a simple Q&A talk.
- You’re looking to take your listening and speaking skills with confidence and at your own pace.
- You must have a computer and it must be connected to the internet.
- Your computer must be equipped with built-in or external speakers to be able to listen to the recorded French audio segments.
- No prior knowledge of French is required as everything will be taught.
- You must, at least, be familiar with the English and/or French alphabet, and if you were able to follow me until now, chances are I don’t have to worry about it on that point.
