Playing this popular board game in its French edition helps you memorise the names of famous places in the capital of France, and a French-speaking friend will help you learn the words for all the elements of the game, and how to say things like “It’s your turn (c’est à toi),” and “Go to jail” (aller en prison). Other games like chess can also be played with a friend who speaks French and you can learn the names of the various pieces for this game.
