  5. Masculine Feminine improvement


Masculine Feminine improvement

This was previously posted by another user on a mini french discussion but thought id give rise its attention as it would be very helpful:

"Since many people are visual learners, it would be nice to associate a color (background, marker, etc.) to a word, to indicate its gender, for example blue for masculine and pink for feminine."

it would be nice to just put le / la in front of every noun in the vocabulary improvement list - we are supposed to learn the gender with the noun - so listing the nouns in a genderless way is needlessly unhelpful


could not agree more (though given the vowel issue un / une would be more definitive)


Don't forget the neuter gender. But yea, definitely one of the best ideas I've heard of since frozen cream on a stick.
