Animals

French Animal Vocabulary

Here you will a list of words for over 40 kinds of animals in French. You’ll notice that most of the animals use the masculine gender. However, there are a few exceptions such as the word for cow (la vache). Also, a lot of the words are very similar to English so they’re pretty easy to learn. Finally, watch out for the pronunciation of l’écureuil, which means squirrel, as it’s a bit tricky. Click on any of the French words, listen, repeat and practice your pronunciation. At the bottom of the page you will find resources for games and flashcards, a quiz and worksheet.
