Top 12 French expressions they don’t teach you at school

Learning French in school is often all about the grammar rules and the pronunciations which can often make language learning no more fun than watching paint dry. Things would have been a lot more interesting if our teachers had taught us a few of the more fun, bizarre but easy-to-use French expressions that are out there. And there are plenty of them. Here at The Local, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to select some of the best and most colourful French expressions, that you wouldn’t have picked up in a classroom. Use them on a daily basis to impress the locals or quite possibly reduce them to hysterics. See how many of these you’ve had cause to deploy. Let us know some more great French expressions that you won’t learn at school, and we’ll include them. Email us at [email protected]
