In French, there are masculine nouns and feminine nouns. Sometimes nouns are either feminine or masculine and sometimes masculine nouns have their feminine form. To find the feminine of a noun, you generally add “e” at the end of the masculine noun. But this rule doesn’t apply to a lot of nouns.
In this lesson, we will show how the meaning of certain nouns can help the French learner decide whether a noun is masculine or feminine.
Names of trees, days, months, seasons, metals, chemical elements, and languages are usually masculine.
