French Classroom Vocabulary in French

An array of French vocabulary words primarily used in an educational or classroom setting.


The word 'professeur' in French is used similar to the English word 'professor', used to address or refer to a teacher in the academic field, particularly in higher education like college or university. Just like in English, it carries a connotation of respect for the individual's knowledge in their particular subject area.

The French word 'question' is used in the same way it is used in English. It can refer to a sentence phrase designed to get information or a specific matter of discussion. However, when it comes to grammar, it often follows the verb-subject-object order, unlike the English subject-verb-object rule. So, in French, you might say 'Pourquoi aimes-tu le football?' which translates to 'Why do you like football?' in English. But literally translated, it means, 'Why like-you the football?'

The French word for 'research' is 'recherche'. It can be used in a variety of contexts, such as in academia or professional work. It can refer to the systematic investigation into and study of materials and sources in order to establish facts and reach new conclusions, just like in English. For example, 'Je fais une recherche sur ce sujet' means 'I am doing research on this topic'.

The French word 'règle' corresponds to 'rule' in English. It can be used in various contexts such as literal rules or guidelines to follow, a regular or standard procedure, measurement tool, or even in mathematical context just like its English counterpart. Always pay attention to the context as it might alter the word's meaning.

The French word for 'science' is 'science', pronounced as see-ahns. It's used in much the same way as the English word, referring to a systematic and logical approach to discovering how things in the universe work. It's a countable noun in both languages, so it can be plural or singular depending on context. Common expressions include 'les sciences naturelles' (natural sciences) and 'faire des sciences' (to study science).

The word 'table' in French is also 'table', pronounced slightly differently. It is used in the same context as in English, referring to a piece of furniture with a flat top and one or more legs, providing a level surface on which objects may be placed. It's used in everyday language and is a commonly known noun.

Example sentences with  table

The French word 'tableau' is used to mean 'board'. It is commonly used in the context of blackboard or whiteboard in a classroom. However, it can also refer to a dashboard or panel of buttons and gadgets in cars or machines, and even a painting or a work of art in gallery. So depending on the context, 'tableau' can have different meanings.

Example sentences with  tableau

The French word for 'university' is 'université'. This term is frequently used in academic and educational contexts, very much similar to how 'university' is used in English. It refers to institutions of higher education and research which provide both undergraduate and post-graduate education.
