    A multiple-language online dictionary.
     
    Using this site to look up an occasional simple word is best.
     
    For entries that return multiple possible French equivalents, be sure to carefully check:
    1) part of speech
    2) context clues (provided in parentheses)
     
    When using words found on this site, be sure to:
    1) select the English-French or Fench-English search feature [note: It is very common for students to accidentally select another language which results in an incorrect French assignment].
    2) Copy spelling correctly, this includes accent marks.
    3) Pay attention to the part of speech and follow the grammar and sentence word order patterns presented in class:
       a. nouns-
       -pay attention to gender    abbreviations [m=masculine;    f=feminine] AND use an appropriate    article 
       b. adjectives-
       -pay attention to notes about irregular    forms
       -modify to agree in gender and    number with the noun you are    describing
        -follow the adjective placement rules    provided in class
       c. verbs- [see verb2verbe below]
       -conjugate in the present tense [all    year];
       -use in the infinitive after another    conjugated verb [all year];
