Health in French

You never know when you’ll need to talk about your health in French, so it’s best to be prepared. After today’s French language lesson with audio you’ll be able to say if you’re not feeling well, and recognize the French words for a health shop, natural medicine and more.
 
But it’s not always about medical French
 
Ever heard French people saying santé when they raise their glasses for a toast and wondered what it meant? It’s the expression for cheers in French!
