One French Word A Day – Spring 2022

Day 44 – prier

The Learning French 100 Day Project – Monday, May 2, 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!


prier (transitive/intransitive verb) : to pray; to pray to


Nous avons prié pour nos enfants. (We prayed for our children.)
Paul priera pour moi et mes chats.
(Paul will pray for me and my cats.)
Claire croit que si elle prie tout les jours sa vie sera meilleure.
(Claire believes that if she prays every day her life will be better.)
