French Grammar

The 5th French lesson teaches the use of the gender by creating the feminine from the masculine form. In addition to that, I included a vocabulary list about clothes and finally common phrases about origins. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, Contact us from the page French Classes.


Knowing how to derive the feminine from the masculine form is very useful. It can make it easy to have a conversation about family members, pets, or professions. An example would be: “man”, “woman”, “Cat (fem.)”, “cat (masc.)” etc.

Below is a list of 12 masculine and feminine forms that you might come across or use very often. The table contains 3 columns (English, French, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.

Masculine vs. Feminine in French

Feminine French Audio
Boy Le garçon

Man L’homme
Woman La femme
Father Le père
Mother La mère

Now we will try to implement some of the forms above into full French sentences. That way you will be able to use the word not only by itself but embedded in a structure.
