  1. Cognates are words that have similar form and meaning in two languages. Learning cognates can help language students build their vocabulary in as little time as possible. However, there are true cognates, near cognates, and false cognates and a student should know the difference. In addition, you'll have to learn their pronunciation as they differ most of the times. Here are some of the true cognates I've learned (there are hundreds in most major languages) French-Engish: le guide (luh geed) the guide la note (lah noht) the note l'animal (lah-nee-mahl) the animal l'omelette (lohm-leht) the omelette l'orange (loh-rahnzh) the orange German - English Banane banana Apfel apple Buch book Katze cat Athlet athlete Kaffee coffee Fieber feber Haar hair Spanish - English actor actor area area civil civil explosión explosion enigma enigma hotel hotel curioso curious Any cognates you can share with your own language or any other languages you are currently learning?
