This section covers the French words and vocabulary used to describe public places and buildings.
The most iconic place in France today is the Eiffel Tower. But did you know Mr. Gustave Eiffel, the architect behind this hugely famous structure, received sharp criticisms before, during and after its construction? Renowned French writer Paul Verlaine, for example, called the Eiffel Tower “this belfry skeleton”, while François Coppée vilified the tower as “incomplete, confused and deformed”. Geez, so much hate! I wonder what they would say today, mdr/lol.
Although I cover some iconic French sites, this vocabulary section is intended to cover mainly public places found in most cities and towns around the world, including the City hall, hospital, primary school, and so on.
- 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 go to various public places every day and would like to master the names of these places in French.
- 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.
