À Boire (things to drink)

You can remember the French for coffee by thinking of going to the cafe to drink it. The French for water is usually said mineral water - you can see that the French for mineral is similar to the English word mineral, so eau is obviously water!

To remember verre, imagine a VERy large glass. Vin is like 'vineyard' and is pronounced a little like 'van' - think of a van delivering you wine from it's vineyard.
S’il vous plaît: Imagine the waiter bringing your drink on a silver plate - and you have to say please to get your drink! Then you have to say 'seel voo pleh'.
