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 . The context will often give you the meaning of the word, and you’ll grow to recognize the spelling more and more easily as you get familiar with the language.

  • Et (and) / Il/Elle est (He/She is)/ Tu es (You are) /  une haie (a hedge) / Je/Tu hais (I/You hate)
  • Un mur (a wall) / une mûre (a blackberry) / mur (ripe)
  • Un coup (a hit) / un cou (a neck)
  • Le ver (the worm) / vert (green) / vers (towards) / le verre (the glass)
