Learning French Words Through Etymology and Mnemonics
A New Approach to Vocabulary Study


Learning French Words Through Etymology and Mnemonics will be published in late summer 2017. It is the second book of the Learning Words Through Etymology and Mnemonics series, modeled after the first book Learning Spanish Words Through Etymology and Mnemonics, which readers are encouraged to preview for the same style and similar content (only different in the language of the words to be studied). For now, you can view two sample pages of Learning French Words Through Etymology and Mnemonics, which are near the beginning of the book therefore the words are mostly for beginners. The book arranges the headwords in usage frequency.

Sample Pages

(The main text of this little dictionary arranges the words in the order of their usage frequency per Lexique.org word frequency. Cognates serve as the most important learning aid.)
