Hello friends of Aprender Palavras, in this article we will learn the names of the planets and some expressions in the French language (français). The name of the planets, the universe and the solar system is something very simple in English, it will be easy for you to memorize this vocabulary. Let's start with a short text explaining what the solar system is, and a large table to increase its vocabulary.

THE solar system (Système solaire) is a set of planets (planètes), asteroids (asteroids) and comets (comètes) that revolve around the sun (Soleil). Each remains in its respective orbit (orbit) due to the intense gravitational force (force gravitationnelle) exerted by the star, which has a mass much greater than that of any other planet.

Note: Just like unite planète it's feminine, so are the other planets.

We recommend that you have basic knowledge of French pronunciation so that you can learn the words correctly.
