French word for ‘air’: **l’air**

**Tips to remember**:
1. Think of a melody or a tune since in English, we also say ‘air’ to mean a simple tune or song; this can remind you of the French ‘air’ which literally means the atmosphere or the air we breathe.
2. Associate with the English word ‘aerial,’ meaning related to the air or atmosphere, to trigger the connection.
3. You might think of the phrase “l’air du temps,” which means the mood or trend of the times – a phrase you may have seen in French culture or fashion contexts.

‘L’air’ in French translates directly to ‘air’ in English when referring to the substance we breathe. In French grammar, ‘l’air’ is masculine and often used with the definite article ‘le’ to form ‘l’air’ due to the next word beginning with a vowel.

**Other words that mean the same thing**:
– ‘L’atmosphère’ can be used as a synonym for ‘l’air’ in the context of discussing the surrounding atmosphere or air quality.
– ‘Le souffle’ translates to ‘breath’ but can also be associated with air.

**Alternate meanings/slang**:
– ‘Avoir l’air’ means to seem or look like; it’s an expression used to describe someone’s appearance or the impression something gives. For example, ‘Il a l’air fatigué’ means ‘He looks tired’.
– As slang, ‘air’ does not have a widespread alternate meaning.

**Examples in sentences**:
– J’ai besoin d’air frais. (I need some fresh air.)
– Ouvre la fenêtre pour laisser entrer l’air. (Open the window to let some air in.)
– Cette chanson a un bel air. (This song has a nice tune.)
– Il semble avoir l’air triste aujourd’hui. (He seems to look sad today.)

Remember that the context always matters, as ‘air’ can be part of many different phrases and expressions in French.
