J'étudie... - I study...
J'étudie beaucoup! - I study a lot!
At school in France, children study much the same subjects we do. Some of the subjects look and sound very similar too.
la musique - Music
l'histoire - History
les sciences - Science
l'art - Art
Others can be worked out:
l'informatique - ICT
The 'I' stands for Information doesn't it?
l'éducation physique - PE (Physical Education)
Others have short forms. Les mathématiques is shortened to les maths – just as we shorten Mathematics to Maths.
les maths - Maths
La géographie is shortened to la géo:
la géo - Geography
And here are some languages:
le français - French
l'anglais - English
l'espagnol - Spanish
Be careful when you talk about school subjects in a sentence – some need the l', le, la etc and others don't:
J'ai informatique maintenant. - I have IT now.
J'aime le français. - I like French.
Je n'aime pas la musique. - I don't like Music.
