Nouns are some of the most common words, both in English and in French. Nouns are the names we give to things, for example ‘table’, ‘cloud’ or ‘television’. Everything you can describe is a noun, not just the things you can see. In this quiz we look at some French nouns for the things you might encounter at school. See how many you know or can remember. Keep practicing to revise for your GCSE exams.
