This is something that could come up on the listening or reading papers, and it’s worth knowing – especially if you’re going on holiday!
Below we have some helpful hotel vocabulary to see you through, ranging from places, to things, to people, to dinner!
If you already have the title sussed, move right on – however, if you still think I’m talking about veg, keep on reading and I’ll explain everything… All 7 words! Hopefully the first three are familiar to you: “Français” is “French” in English, and “Le vocabulaire” is “(The) vocabulary”. It’s the next couple of words that may trip some people up. “Sur” can mean a few things in French, but in this context it means “on” – in the sense of it’s ‘about’ something. This works for other things as well: “Mon contrôle sur la météo” – “My assessment on the weather”. Finally we have the phrase “mode de vie”. If you remember any of the work you have done on clothing, you should remember that mode means “fashion”: “Fashion of Life” – doesn’t quite work, does it? However, in English we have another word similar to fashion… Style! “Style of life”: is this sounding more familiar? What if we swapped it around and got rid of the ‘of’… “Lifestyle”.
So there you have it. You’ve already learnt some more vocabulary:
Le mode de vie
Lifestyle (or more directly: way of life)
Long lists of vocabulary are boring, right? Right. I agree. So I’ve decided the best way to get you to remember all of the vocabulary you need to know about school is to write you a long list of vocabulary for you to remember. Oh, you don’t agree? Well luckily, I was joking.
So now you’re curious to see how I’m going to cram lots of words into your head; so read on to find out…
