C’est la liste du mercredi 16 juin 2021. Here are your 10 French words of the day about ice cream. Love Learning Languages offers quick French vocabulary lists or 10 Mots du Jour every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Each set follows a different theme, today the 10 French vocabulary words are about ice cream. Self learning advice: if you want the words to stick better, use them all week a couple of times a day. Create conversation in French in your mind if you have no option to speak French!
Did you know? In 1668, Francesco Procopio begins to serve ice cream at the Café Procope, in Paris. Iceboxes, which are holes in which ice was stored in straw, allowed Louis XIV, the Sun King, to enjoy ice cream in summer. The ice was harvested in winter and stored in thirteen coolers in the park of the Palace of Versailles. Ice cream had already been already popular in other cultures, including Persia, for a long time!
With LLL, each week you get 3 downloadable lists of the words in French and English, a “Did you know?” in French and a Quizlet study set to learn, practice, and master them all. Quizlet is a platform for learning vocabulary that’s based on flashcards, but what has really made an impression on me is how fun it makes learning new language content! Click here for details.
