Similarities Between English and French

In many ways, French is very much like English. For example, simple French sentences generally follow the same arrangement as English ones. Take a look at the sentences below:

The boy eats the croissant.
Le garçon mange le croissant.


From the picture above, we can find out that:
  • The word "The" is "Le" in French.
  • The word "boy" is "garçon" in French.
  • The word "eats" is "mange" in French.
  • The word "the" is "le" in French.
  • The word "croissant" is "croissant" in French.

There are also some differences that exist between the two languages. Take a look at the sentences below:

The tall blond boy eats the croissant.
Le grand garçon blond mange le croissant.


From the picture above, we can find out that:
  • The word "The" is "Le" in French.
  • The word "tall" is "grand" in French.
  • The word "boy" is "garçon" in French.
  • The word "blond" is "blond" in French.
  • The word "eats" is "mange" in French.
  • The word "the" is "le" in French.
  • The word "croissant" is "croissant" in French.

Though there are differences, we must think about the ways French and English words are alike. We can learn many French words simply by recognizing a few patterns in word endings.
