Aurelie (aurelie_thiele) | 1 comments Hello Zahraa,
maybe you can start with a list of jobs in French - just walk around and write down the jobs of people you see. (Vendeur, conducteur, restaurateur, serveur, etc) Many nouns about occupations for males will end in -eur and for females in -euse. Some will also end in -iste, like "fleuriste" and "bouquiniste" (although technically I'm not sure whether "bouquiniste" is a job... but it's for a good cause...) So you'll already have the rhymes of your poem. Then perhaps you can make sentences about those jobs to complete your masterpiece. :) Hope this helps!
