For French learners, homonyms are trouble-makers! They are words that sound the same but have a different meaning and spelling. Confusing? As you slowly enlarge your vocabulary, you’ll see that they won’t be that much of a problem .

  • Et (and) / Il/Elle est (He/She is)/ Tu es (You are) /  une haie (a hedge) / Je/Tu hais (I/You hate)
