French Jobs Vocabulary: Basic rules
French jobs vocabulary, although extensive, is pretty easy to learn. But first, you have to keep these few rules in mind.
- In French, each profession word must correspond in gender (masculine or feminine) with the person it’s describing. You will notice that some of the professions have two names (one masculine, one feminine).
Example: un acteur/ une actrice (an actor/an actress)
- There are jobs that are the exact same in the masculine and the feminine forms.
Example: un dentiste/ une dentiste (a dentist)
- There are also jobs that are always written in the masculine only no matter if the person performing them is female or male. The reason behind it is that those jobs were traditionally performed by men. Not cool, I know! #feminism 😉
Example: un pompier (a firefighter)
