Do you want to know how to learn the 625 most common French words in the most effective and efficient way possible?

If so, the 625 most common French Words Anki Deck is the best solution for you!

In this post I am going to explain everything you need to know about why you should use the 625 most common French Words Anki Deck, what it is, and how to get it!

Here’s a video that shows you the content of the 625 most common French Words Anki Deck:

If you would like to read rather than watch, then please go ahead and keep reading!

Why should you use the 625 Most Common French Words Anki Deck?

  1. You will be able to understand and use almost all of the spoken language

A study by the experienced professor Stuart Webb and Thi Ngoc Yen Dang showed that by knowing the 1000 most common words you will be able to understand up to 85% of the language.

Knowing the second 1000 most common words only allows you to understand 3-10% more words that you would encounter.

Therefore those 1000 first words are absolutely essential and will help you understand almost all of the spoken language!

If you think about it, it makes a lot of sense.

You are much more likely to use words such as “dog”, “house”, and “red” in everyday conversation than “ostentatious”, “symbiosis”, and “nonplussed”.

Starting with 625 most common French words gives you an excellent foundation that will allow you to understand everyday conversation and use those words too.

Now you may be thinking, this Anki Deck only teaches the 625 most common French words, where are the remaining 375?

A big part of those are (conjugated) verbs.

It isn’t smart to learn those without knowing the grammar behind them.

For example, in English, you would say:

I am hungry.

You may expect that in French it would be:

Je suis faim.

You probably looked up that “I am” and found “Je suis“.

However, that would be wrong. The correct answer is:

J’ai faim.

In French you would use avoir (to have) rather than être (to be).

Also, Je changes to J’ because there is a vowel after it.

There are so many more examples of this, and not just the present tense, think of past tenses too.

The 625 most common French words Anki Deck contains verbs, but has a nouns and adjectives focus.

Therefore the 625 most common French Words Anki Deck should be used with the French A1 Anki Deck where you will encounter the remaining words, and understand the fundamentals of French!

Either way, the 625 most common French words Anki Deck allows you to understand most of the spoken language!

2. Practice the 625 Most Common French Words

The 625 most common French Words Anki Deck has 1,250 flashcards.

These flashcards contain every single concept that you need to know!

This means you have a tremendous amount of exercises.

The best part is that the exercises will adapt, depending on your own performance.

This gives you a tailor-made practice deck.

You will be able to practice every single facet of the 625 most common French words.

  1. Improve your French Comprehension and Pronunciation.

All of the flashcards in the 625 most common French Words Anki Deck have an audio file.

In fact, there is an audio file for the sentence in which the word is, and a separate audio file just for the word.

This means that you will know how the words and sentences are supposed to sound in French.

This will greatly improve your French comprehension.

Moreover, because you hear the audio, you also improve your own pronunciation.

Finally, if you are ever confused, there is also the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) of the words and sentences for you to check.

  1. The Best Way to Memorize the 625 Most Common French Words

One of the biggest advantages of using the 625 most common French words Anki Deck, is that it is the PERFECT tool for memorizing what you have learned.

No longer will you keep forgetting what you studied!

Read more on the benefits of Anki in the next chapter!

Why is it so important to use Anki?

anatomy 1751201 640 1

Have you ever studied for an exam and then forgotten everything a few days after the exam?

In fact, according to Art Kohn Ph.D, a professor at Duke University, within 24 hours most of us forget an average of 70% of new information.

It is a feeling that most of us experience. Often this would not be a problem.

However, when it comes to language this can become a huge issue. Learning vocabulary and grammar to then forget them later on would be a disaster!

Anki prevents this from happening and ensures that you remember what you study.

Let’s take a look at the 3 reasons why Anki is so effective.

  1. Active recall

Active recall means that Anki asks you a question and you have to remember the answer. This is more powerful than passive learning and improves your memory.

When you retrieve information from your brain you strengthen your ability to retain information and create connections in your brain between different concepts.

  1. Spaced Repetition

This system finds its origins in the spacing effect. The spacing effect illustrates how people learn better if reviews are spread out over time.

Spaced repetition introduces new concepts in batches to you. A flashcard appears and if you know the answer the flashcard moves to the next batch. This batch will be shown to you at a later time. The more often you answer correctly the later the intervals become.

However, should you answer wrongly, the flashcard moves to the first batch again, and you will see it more often.

  1. Ease

Anki takes care of all your scheduling. There’s no need to calculate when you need to use which cards. Furthermore, Anki is available on both iOS and Android users, so you can download it on your smartphone and use it wherever you are.

Card Structure of the 625 Most Common French Words Anki Deck

All words are placed in sentences so you can learn them in the correct context.

All Flashcards in the 625 most common French words Anki Deck have an image, an IPA notation, and an audio file.

The image allows you to create a better memory with the word/concept that you are studying. You are linking a concept with a certain image.

The IPA notation is so you can exactly know how something is pronounced and be able to repeat that pronunciation yourself.

The audio file allows you to understand how something is pronounced in French. This will help you to improve your French comprehension.

Here is an extract, so you can hear what the audio sounds like in the 625 most common French Words Anki Deck. The IPA notation has been added too.

J’aime le chien de mon frère.

ʒɛm lə ʃjɛ̃ də mɔ̃ fʁɛːʁ

Elle porte une robe.

ɛlə pɔɾt ynə ɾɔbə.

There are 2 card types in the 625 most common French words Anki Deck.

  1. Conjugate/Fill in the blank

On the front side, you will be faced with a sentence both in French and English.

In the French sentence, something is missing.

In the English sentence, the word that you need to know is bolded and underlined.

You have to know what goes in the missing area.

On the back, you will see the French sentence, the IPA notation of the sentence, the English translation of the sentence, and an audio file of the French sentence.

You will also see just the French word, the IPA notation of the word, the English translation of the word, and an audio file of the French word.

This gives you the opportunity to see and hear the word in a sentence and just by itself.

Please note how “sa mère” is colour coded to pink to remind you that it is feminine. All nouns are colour coded blue for masculine and pink for feminine. This will help you remember the gender of nouns better.

  1. Type the correct French word

This is the same as the first card, however in this one you have to type the correct word.

You will see if you made any errors, or if you were correct.

This helps improve your writing skills in French.

What people say?

This Anki Deck is absolutely wonderful! I am using it in combination with the French A1 Anki Deck and it feels like a cheat code. I am learning so fast, and everyrthing is already done for me so I don’t have to put in hours and hours to make those cards. I like the audio and IPA notations, it helps with the pronunciation of the words and sentences. All in all this is terrific! Thanks!
I have been looking for something like this for a long time. It has all the words that you need to talk with people and together with the French A1 Anki Deck I am learning grammar too. What I really like is the use of colour to indicate the gender of the nouns. Whenever I see something blue I know it’s masculine and pink for feminine. It makes remembering easier for me.
