Using nouns D In French, all nouns are either masculine or feminine. This is called their gender. Even words for things have a gender.

Just learn the French word with its gender, which is always the same. Some words for people have only one possible gender, whether they refer to a male or a female. In French, very often the ending of a noun changes depending on whether it refers to a man or a woman. As things do not divide into sexes the way humans and animals do, there are no physical clues to help you with their gender in French.
