Country Name in French

Since the Czech Republic changed their name to Czechia, has the name in French changed? If so what is it? Has the gender changed?

Improvement possible

Would be more useful is we could see what gender were countries starting with a vowel.

The starting letter doesn't have any bearing on the gender of a noun.

DanielA1Kwiziq community member

Exactly, and as a result we currently can't tell from this list. Those genders would be a very useful addition!

JocelynC1Kwiziq community member

yes it would be, thanks for asking!

EllaB1Kwiziq community member

All countries ending in 'e' are feminine (except Belize, Cambodge, Mexique, Mozambique, Zimbabwe). This info is taken from a Kwiziq lesson

KatjanaA1Kwiziq community member

When listening to the list, they use a male or female voice so that way, you'll know if it's masculine or feminine
