Nouns are the names we give to people or things, and there are no people more important than our family and friends. In this quiz we take a look at forty French nouns related in some way to the people closest to us. Not all the words are those for family members or friends. We also include some abstract nouns such as ‘love’, ‘trust’ and ’freedom’, plus some nouns describing what we and the people around us may have, such as hair, glasses and beards. Have a go and see how well you can do. It’s a fast and fun way to revise for the GCSE French exams.
