    Main similarities and differences

    • You may know much more French than you think! French and English are
      close cousins in the world family of languages, and have many thousands
      of words in common.
    • Within moments of your arrival, you could see any of the following
      words on signs in a French town. These will help you get your bearings.

      htel
      restaurant
      garage


      bar
      cinma
      avenue
    • The same spelling doesn't mean the pronunciation is the same. Here are a few examples:
      service
      brochure
      train
      caf
      terrible
      double
    • There are also many words in French that look like English words, but have taken on different meanings:
      le parking car park
      le speaker announcer
    • The way you emphasise a French word can take some getting used to. There's much more stress on the end of words than in English:
      English
      parking
      restaurant
      French
      le parking
      le restaurant
    • The order of words can also be the reverse of the English equivalents, as in the following examples:
      a Place de la Bastille
    • Bastille Square (lit. the Square of the Bastille)
      Rue de Rivoli

      Rivoli St (lit. the Street of Rivoli)
    centre-ville

    city centre (lit. centre town)
