Writing in French
It’s just as important to include accents when writing in French as it is to spell words correctly. It drives me kind of crazy when people say, sorry, I can’t type accents on my computer / tablet / smartphone. Yes, you can type accents – yes! even on your old computer. No, you don’t have to buy a French keyboard, or install any software.
Virtually every system has at least one built-in method for typing accents – you just need to follow these links to find out what it is and how to activate it.
