I’m a big fan of noting things down. I write, I draw and I do it all the time. I do it on paper most of the time.
I’m a big believer that in language learning writing with your hand is one of the great techniques to remember things. That’s why I was really happy to have discovered a board that allows me to write as many language drills as I want and without wasting any paper !
Knowing the names of countries in French is essential for a beginner. Not only will it allow you to speak about yourself properly, but also it will let you understand your speaker when they introduce themselves.
In France, especially in big cities like Paris, Mareseille or Nice you will come across people of different origins and nationalities. It will be easier for you to understand them if you know the names of the countries they are coming from.
What you need to know about the names of countries in French is that they normally come with a definite article (masculine or feminine). However, they are often dropped, depending on the context and the sentences in which they are used.
But visiting all these magnificent places without the slightest knowledge of French can be dull. Wouldn't it be great to get more from your visit to the Louvre for example if you could exchange in French a little with another tourist or a guide about a particular work of art ?
