Hi.

 

Here is a phrase you can use

"Voici un cadeau de ton papa pour t'aider en français" > Here is a gift from your daddy to help you in french

 

 

Thank you for your help. It is very appreciative. There is just one clarification. I am his grandfather not his daddy. Could I replace papa with grandpere without affecting the meaning of the sentence? Waiting to hear from you.

Regards

Lloyd

Yes, you could replace it with grand-père (there's a hyphen and an accent grave) OR papy (this is more colloquial and means grandpa instead of grandfather [which I think is too formal]).

 

It won't change the meaning of the sentence in any other way, rest assured. :-)

Since you used "Papa" in your phrase, I assume the books were from his dad. Papa in french means Dad.

But as Charlie said, you can use Papy, or Pépé, or Grand-père (but mainly Papy), without changing anything.
