FRIENDS FALSE & TRUE: A Quiz on French Words which are just like English

French and English share tens of thousands of similar words, thanks to the Normans who conquered England almost a thousand years ago, bringing their language with them. Some are identical in spelling and meaning, so-called vrais amis (‘true friends’), but some are faux amis (‘false friends’) and have been the cause of many an awkward moment in international conversation! For each question, I’ll give you a French word, and you just need to choose the correct meaning from the choices below. Sounds easy? That’s because it is!
