English translation of mois

month

The French word for 'month' is 'mois'. It is used in the same context as in English. For instance, if you want to say 'I will be there in a month', you would say 'Je serai là dans un mois'. It is a masculine noun, so when referring to a specific month you would use 'le' before it, for example 'le mois d'Août' for 'the month of August'.
