French Feelings VocabularyFrench Feelings Vocabulary & Phrases

In this lesson you will learn how to say 20 feelings (les sentiments) words in French. An important thing to keep in mind is that these are adjectives and the way they are written must correspond with the person to which they are referring – either masculine or feminine. For many of the words there is no need to change the pronunciation. However, when the last letter of the word is a constant and you add an extra “E” the feminine form you must pronounce that last consonant. The end “eux” word for happy – “Heureux” changes to “euse” in the feminine form. You will see that the feminine pronunciation he is much different in the video.
