Description

Today, our episode is inspired by my partner. I said it many times already but he’s not French. Despite that I tend to forget that he’s a foreigner and I make zero effort to adapt my French to his level. Sorry. I want to point out though that his level is really good so I’m not being cruel here. He understands pretty much everything that I say but there are occasional conversational phrases that he doesn’t get. I thought it would be good to talk about this so that you don’t end up completely confused like my partner if you happen to hear such a phrase.

There are several phrases that we use regularly that actually mean the opposite of what they’re supposed to mean at first glance.

 

In this Episode

  • Three conversational phrases untangled
  • A personal story
  • An infographic to download
