Language for Little Learners


French words of praise

April 19, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Uncategorized

Throughout the day I find myself constantly encouraging my children to do this or to that and tell them that they’ve done well when they show me something they’ve built, colored or drawn. What I’ve been doing lately is try to take the English out of my praising and encouragment and only say those things in French.

For example:

fantastic! – fantastique!
You will succeed. – Tu vas réussir.
incredible! – incroyable!
pefect! – parfait!
excellent! – excellent!
good job! – bon travail!
very good! – très bien!

and my personal favorite – oh là là! The cutest thing is when your own kids start saying oh là là!
