Learning French

I feel I want to really brush up on my french so this section of the blog will be all about that. I’m going to work through all of french grammar step by step and see how it goes. I’m going to try and mind map as I go to help learn it all.

I am using a mac so here’s how to get french accents on a MAC keyboard

Acute accent:

alt-e then e = é

Grave accent:

alt-` then e = è
alt-` then a = à

(note, the ` symbol is just to the right of the left shift key)

Circumflex accent:

alt-i then a = â
alt-i then e = ê


alt c = ç


alt-u then o = ö (e.g. Nöel)

oe ligature:

alt-q = œ
