Lesson Transcript

In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about French currency, the Euro.
The euro consists of ones, twos, fives, tens, twenties, fifties, hundreds, two hundreds, and five hundreds.
As of October 2007, the exchange rate is roughly seventy euro cents to one U.S. dollar and roughly sixty euro cents to one hundred Japanese yen. Paper currency includes six bills and eight coins.
In French, the word for euro is pronounced "euro."
The word "cents" is translated in two ways. One is to simply say the word in English: cents. The second and more common way is to say centimes.
When saying a price, we often do not say the word for cents.
For example, "one euro twenty" translates as un euro vingt. If the price is made only of cents, then we say the price and then centimes or cents.
For example, "fifty cents" is cinquante centimes or cinquante cents.
