Vive la France!French False Friends
Here is a challenging game that is a lot of fun. If you are learning French, it will also help you distinguish "false friends", those confusing French words that look like English words but mean something entirely different.
Each of the following sentences contains one of those words that look exactly an English word. The sentence itself is a hint as to which word it is. So, here is all you have to do:
  1. Find the word in each sentence that is also a French word;
  2. Write the English translation in the box to the right.
  3. Press the question mark;
  4. Find out if you identified the correct word.

Good luck.
