May is the month where the temperatures rise, flowers bloom and people enjoy spending time in their garden.
In this post, let’s learn some vocabulary about the garden. Maybe you already know how to say garden in French, but do you know the words for flowerbed or lawn in French? And do you understand the English words hedge and shed?
As usual in this blog category of English – French vocabulary, you will find the article le or un and la or une in front of the French words so you know whether they are masculine or feminine. Remember it is always a good idea to learn the article together with the noun. It is like learning a word that is only one syllable longer, and the bonus is that it is no extra effort for your brain to memorise it when you learn them together. 🙂
Here is a list of 15 words. Read them and then practice with the flashcards below. They are here to help you learn and review all the words. Do it several times if you like and see how it gets easier each time to get the full list right.
