Heroes (Les Heros)

Below, I have listed the major vocabulary, grammar and structures that students will learn or have already learned in French class.  I have tried to provide an English translation along with more phonetic spellings of how these words and phrases actually sound in French

French (sounds like...) English meaning

un héros  (uhn-ay-ro) = a hero

 une héroïne    (oon-ay-ro-een) = a heroine

 un superhéros  (uhn-syu-pair-ay-ro) =a superhero

 une superhéroïne (oon-syu-pair-ay-ro-een) = a superheroine

 courageux  (coo-ra-jhuh) = courageous 

 courageuse (coo-ra-jhuzz) = courageous

 généreux  (jhay-nay-rhuh) =   generous   

 généreuse  (jhay-nay-rhuzz) = generous   

intelligent  (ehn-tell-ee-jhahn) = intelligent

 intelligente  (ehn-tell-ee-jhahn-tuh) = intelligent 

 sportif (spor-teef) = athletic
sportive (spor-teev) = athletic

 serviable (sair-vee-a-bluh) = helpful

 sympa  (sehm-pa) = kind, considerate  
super-fort  = (syu-pair-for) = incredibly strong   

super-forte (syu-pair-for-tuh) = incredibly strong

 exceptionnel   (ex-sep-syohn-el) = having special powers

 exceptionnelle   (ex-sep-syohn-el-luh) = having special powers

 content  (cohn-tahn) = happy
 contente (cohn-tahn-tuh) = happy
gentil  (jhohn-tee) = nice
 gentille (jhohn-tee-yuh) = nice

héroïque    (ay-ro-eek) = heroic

 Since the majority of emphasis during French class is on oral communication (even when students are writing or reading), and since most students hear and speak French only during this brief time each day, it is extremely helpful for you to practice these
words and phrases with them, even if it is only for a few minutes on the weekend. Try sitting down with your child and asking them to teach you how to speak these words and phrases in French, and also how to put words together to form
sentences. This type of practice is more engaging for both of you, and leads to a deeper level of learning, more than memorizing and repeating back do.
