True Friends

Believe it or not, when you walk into your first French class, you already know hundreds and hundreds French words, because there are more than 1,700 vrais amis; that is, French and English words that are spelled identically and mean the same thing – at least sometimes. While not a complete list, these pages will help you start using a huge variety of French words from day one.

But first, a few comments:

  • The second column indicates the part of speech in both languages. However, some words have an additional part of speech in one language that is not a vrai ami in the other, so be sure the part of speech corresponds to what you mean to say.
  • For nouns, the French noun gender is also indicated in the second column.
  • Many of these are only semi-true friends: they only mean the same thing in certain contexts. So before using these words, double-check their meaning with a native speaker or dictionary to make sure you’re saying what you think you’re saying.
