C’est la liste du mercredi 13 octobre 2021. Here are your 10 French words of the day about les expressions. Love Learning Languages offers these quick French vocabulary lists or 10 Mots du Jour every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Each set follows a different theme, today the 10 French vocabulary words are about les expressions.
Did you know? There are lots of idiomatic expressions in French, as in all languages. When you are an English speaker, you will want to use expressions like this one: “When pigs fly” and you are tempted to translate it literally into French, so you would say: “quand les cochons voleront”… Unfortunately, nobody will understand you! So you have to learn the idioms by heart to remember them. The expression in French that corresponds to “When pigs fly” is “quand les poules auront des dents” which means “when hens have teeth”… Nothing to do with it! If you have any favorite expressions, or things to say about it, post a comment 🙂 Thanks and see you Friday!

With LLL, each week you get 3 downloadable lists of the words in French and English, a “Did you know?” in French and a Quizlet study set to learn, practice, and master them all. Quizlet is a platform for learning vocabulary that’s based on flashcards, but what has really made an impression on me is how fun it makes learning new language content! Click here for details.
