Holly’s essential guide to holiday French

Guess what? Me, my mum and my dad are going to France this year and I need to start learning my French.

At the moment I know how to say hello and bye. I also know how to say:

Can I have a chocolate ice cream, please?

Je voudrais une glace au chocolat, s’il vous plaît.

I wrote this because it’s nice to know how to speak another language and I wanted to share this with you. So I expect soon your French will be better than mine!

We are going to France for a week and a day. Hopefully we will escape this English weather: nasty I can tell you.

To read our phrasebook (which we can hopefully add to and format when we work out how!) please click on the link below. Merci et au revoir!

July 16: we have updated the file to include phonetic pronunciations too!



  1. Just want to tell you The Great Dog Bottom Swap arrived today and everybody loves it from 71 to 3 years old. We haven’t laughed so much in ages. Thank you Holly and we wish you a lovely holiday in France. Bon voyage, a toute la famille.:)


  2. Have you tried reading Le Petit Prince? It’s quite possibly one of my favorite books. The French might be a little advanced if you are just learning, but it’s available in English translations as well, might be fun to check out if you haven’t already!


  3. We have a copy of Le Petit Prince here and will definitely be reading it, thanks for the suggestion! Holly’s class started it last year but only got halfway through. We’ve got a dual language book so that should be fun!
