One French Word A Day – Spring 2022

Day 28 – déménager

The Learning French 100 Day Project – Saturday, April 16, 2022

I’ve been studying French on and off for about a year. My interest in the language began when I started reading classical French novels by Balzac, Dumas, Flaubert, Stendhal, and others. I’m also a budding armchair historian of the French Revolution. In 2018/19, I spent Christmas and the New Year in Paris. Bonne Année !!

French is a beautiful, musical, romantic language, … and I’m keen on learning it.

For the next 100 days (all of Spring 2022), I’ll focus daily on a French word and use it in sentences. The results of my efforts will surely be hilarious, peppered with errors, and unequivocally bad French … but you gotta have the freedom to fail.

So, without further ado … let’s learn French! Allons-y!


déménager (transitive/intransitive verb) : to move (something); to move; to move house


Nous avions prévu de déménager une semaine plus tard. (We planned to move a week later.)
