Vocabulary list in English, Hebrew and French

I am finding that I need to teach beginners English, and they sometimes speak Hebrew and sometimes speak French.  So I'm learning French right now.  I have an old book, The Berlitz Self-Teacher French book published in 1949, Here is a link to the updated version.  The Berlitz Self-Teacher French
but I don't think that French has changed so much.  There are new words, of course relating to technology, but they are taken usually from English.  I looked up all the words in two dictionaries, a French -English one and then a Hebrew English one.

Feel free to use this list in your teaching as well.  Watch for further blog posts with more vocabulary words.

Here are my vocabulary words that I have learned this week so far.

A Video a day helps you to Learn English! Steve Jobs Speech with subtitles

Video as a learning tool is very helpful, espccially if the video has subtitles! Personally I really don't like the Apple products now...
