CHAPTER 4: Sports – Introductory Notes

This lesson is about sports and the common French words on that subject.

What would be a vocabulary course worth, a French one at that, if no mention of the word sport was made? France has millions of sports fans, the majority of them cheering mostly for le foot (soccer in French). Of course, France has its share of traditional sports and games. La p├ętanque is assuredly one of the most popular among them all. It is enjoyed by young and old alike and can be practiced in parks, grassy areas, or even dirt and paved roads. Enjoy!
