**Tips to remember the French word ‘l’ordinateur’:**

1. **Association:** Think of an “order” being processed by a computer and remember that ‘ordinateur’ sounds a bit like ‘order’.
2. **Visual imagery:** Imagine an office in France with a sign that says ‘Salle de l’Ordinateur’ (Computer Room) to link the word to a visual location.
3. **Rhyming:** Create a rhyme with French words, like “Pour calculer, j’utilise l’ordinateur” (To calculate, I use the computer).


– ‘L’ordinateur’ is a masculine noun in French. The ‘l” is the definite article ‘the’, highlighting that you are talking about a specific computer.
– In French, words usually take on a gender and ‘ordinateur’ is masculine, hence it is preceded by ‘le’. When combined with ‘le’, the ‘e’ at the end of ‘le’ is dropped due to elision, because ‘ordinateur’ begins with a vowel sound, forming ‘l’ordinateur’.

**Other words that mean the same thing:**

– Un PC – short for ‘un ordinateur personnel’ which means a personal computer.
– Un micro-ordinateur – a term used in the past, equivalent to microcomputer.

**Alternate meanings or slang:**

While ‘l’ordinateur’ is not slang and does not have alternate meanings in itself, the word “ordi” is often used as a familiar, casual abbreviation in spoken French.
