Shopping for Clothing…in Your Pajamas

(And yes, that’s still a big deal to the French.) Get up to speed with French clothing vocabulary by visiting the website for a major department store. Our recommendations: Galeries Lafayette or Le Printemps. (Be sure to choose “versione français”!) Learning by context is one of the most efficient ways to pick up new vocabulary words. So dive into the world of online shopping and see if you can figure out each of these terms:

  • à suivre…
  • bonne affaires
  • compte
  • livraison
  • luxe
  • marques
  • paiement sécurisé
  • panier



While you’re browsing, check out “Les Vitrines” for a glimpse of the latest fashion displays. Happy shopping!
