Have you ever heard of the rule of 80/20 in a language ?
This rule stands for 80% of a language is used 20% of the time, and 20% is used 80% of the time.
So why would you learn 80% of a language that you will never use ?

But, the way they are put together with everyday sentences, makes it understandable for everyone. The sentences included in 1000 most common French words will give you a taste of how one talks in everyday life, at home, at work, and in conversation between friends.
The little French dictionary of word families
Not your regular dictionary
If you know me, you know that I learned English by myself a few years ago. Some methods were successful, some were not, to say the least.
One of the methods that worked incredibly well while developing my vocabulary was to learn words by families.
Let see an example in English :
A tooth / Teeth
Why would you stop there when you can learn :
1. A toothpaste
2. A toothbrush
3. A toothache
4. A toothpick
5. The wisdom teeth
6. The tooth fairy
7. Tooth decay
Do you see how you can speed up your vocabulary learning in one sitting ?
Then I realized how powerful that could be to have a dictionary for people to learn the same way in French.
So I put myself to work, and I came up with this dictionary where you can learn more than 2500 words.
All the families start with a simple word that you most likely know.
Learn 11 words from "Une dent"
Learn 7 words from "La cuisine"
Learn 6 words from "Une histoire"
Learn 5 words from "La neige"
And so many more !
