FRENCH WORD OF THE DAY #4

Hello, guys late post again (sorry) and today I will be talking about family members and I think it's going to be fun!

Sister will become sœur in French, pretty tricky because you have the weird oe together.

Brother is frère in French I will talk about small and big in the next sentence.

Small will become petit in French

Big is just gros in French, actually sounds like gross in English! @__@

Mother and father in French sounds and spells nearly the same, they become mère et père in French which is Mother and father in French.

Grandfather and grandmother is Grand-père et grand-mère in French. It's sounds also like mother and father in French but just add the grand which is big in French!

Cousin is cousin again in French! (this one is easy to remember)

Aunt and uncle is tante et oncle in French, the last word oncle and the last word in English uncle sounds nearly the same. (these tips might help you with your exam)

So there we have it, I did not write father in law or sister in law because it's not that usall we use those words in French. Hope you enjoyed this lesson as much as I did, and if you have any recommendations for the next lesson, I will definitely reply and do it! Au revoir

very good. One minor suggestion, you should not pronounce the French word gros like the English word gross. They are different. The French word sounds more like gro as in Miracle-Gro plantfood.
