To Make + Nouns

Faire - to make + noun
Faire is one of the first French verbs students learn, along with its most common English counterparts: "to do" and "to make." While "make" seems straightforward enough, in reality it has a number of different meanings and uses, many of which have completely different French translations.

Adverbs of Manner

French adverbs
Adverbs of manner express how the action of a verb occurs. In English, the vast majority of adverbs of manner end in -ly, whereas in French, they mostly end in -ment and are created from adjectives.

Important News

I'm finding that more and more readers are having trouble logging in via Patreon, plus having to leave LF to use that service is very unwieldy, so I now recommend that everyone create a Lawless French membership. The levels and benefits are identical, you won't need to leave the site to log in, plus you can also post on the blog and forum.

If you're already a Patreon subscriber, you can continue using that service - assuming that it works for you. If not, please cancel your subscription there and create a Lawless French membership instead.
