|- Learn French|
Writing letters is a good way to learn French. Having new penpal friends who speak the language you’re learning will give you a chance to put into words what you’ve learned in grammar, vocabulary …, the point is to make an effort constructing phrases and expressions, both by using a dictionary and from what you’ve learned in general, in many ways writing letters to penpals will certainly help you a lot in your learning path.
Below is a sample of an English/ French letter that you may take as an example to your first step in having pen pals, or simply for the purpose of introducing yourself in French, you will notice that I sometimes include more than one possibility, for example you will find more than one nationality in the same phrase (English/ British), that way you can choose the most appropriate to you, modify it, delete, or add whatever you want, if you need some more vocabulary check the home page, also you will be able to find some additional phrases at the phrases page …
The English Letter Sample
My name is Speak7., I started learning French lately, and I thought it's a good idea to have some penpal friends who speak the language, that way I can practice what I learned in French, and make new friends at the same time.
Let me tell you more about myself, I'm 26 years old, I’m a young (1) American / British (2) male (3), I live in Washington/ London (4), I study languages (5), I work as a surgeon/ carpenter/ mechanic (6), English (7) is my native language, I have one brother (8), one sister (9), I have one son (10), one daughter (10), I live with my parents (11), I live by myself (12), I'm single (13), I’m married (14).
In my free time I like to listen to music (15), watch movies, documentaries... I like to travel and meet new people...and much more.
I want to learn French because I love it, I also want to learn it for my job/ my husband/ my wife (16)/ my sons (17), and above all I think it's a nice language.
As you can see, I can already write in French, but I still need to improve, because my vocabulary is limited, and I also use a dictionary a lot.
I hope to receive a letter from you soon, with information about yourself and what you like to do ...I also hope that you can help me improve my level in French.
I think that's all for now, take care and have a nice!
The French Letter Example
(to address a female we add an extra e)
I tried to put numbers at the end of some expressions so that you would know which is which in case you’re confused, obviously you need to delete the expressions that don’t correspond to your personality, also some numbered expressions may have other alternatives, for example:
(1, 3) = young female = une jeune femme. Man = homme. Woman = femme. (2) for nationalities you can check the vocabulary pages.
(4) = for countries, check the vocabulary pages or look them up online if your country is not listed here.
(5, 7) = for other professions and languages check out my vocabulary pages.
(8 - 17) = delete the ones that don’t apply to you.
As mentioned before, some nouns/ and adjectives may take an extra “e” to form the feminine, like the professions, nationalities (unless it already ends in “e”), married = marié (if you’re a male), mariée (if you’re a female).
