French days and months

  • The French months are easy to remember because they all sound similar to their English versions. 


    French Pronunciation Month
    janvier jahn-veeay January
    février fay-vreeay February
    mars mahrs March
    avril ah-vreel April
    mai may May
    juin jwehn June
    juillet jwee-ay July
    aoà»t ah-oot August
    septembre sep-tahm-br September
    octobre oc-toe-br October
    novembre no-vehm-br November
    décembre day-sehm-br December

    The French days are harder to remember. Samedi has some similarity in sound to Saturday, and lundi is easy to connect to Monday when we remember that moon is the basis of Monday and that lune, being related to the English word lunar, is the root of lundi. All the others just have to be memorized.

    dimanche dee-mansh Sunday
