HOW TO SAY FUCK IN FRENCH

Learn French swear word “putain” & its derivatives

SALUT!

Today we’re going to be very sophisticated indeed scone, following a request I got from one of you guys, here’s a video on the swear word PUTAIN, that French actor Jean Dujardin so beautifully shouted when he got his Oscar a couple of years ago. We swear quite a bit in France, even on national TV. No biggie. That’s why every one of you French learners should know our French “fuck”, PUTAIN. 

The first meaning of the word is actually “a whore” UNE PUTAIN. We also have the word UNE PUTE to translate “whore”. Or UNE PROSTITUÉE. 

But most of the time, we’ll exclaim PUTAIN when we’re angry or frustrated about something.

  • PUTAIN, FAIS CHIER, IL M’A ENCORE POSÉ UN LAPIN. 
  • Fuck, what a pain, he stood me up again.

But we can also use it to express our happiness, just as our dear Jean Dujardin did it…

  • PUTAIN, TROP BON, J’AI GAGNÉ UN OSCAR! – Fuck, awesome, I’ve won an Oscar!

There’s also an example of such use of the word in webisode 19 of “Oh La La, Hollywood Speaks French!” dedicated to French slang. Check it out, you may learn a few extra bad words.

  • PUTAIN QU’ELLE EST BONNE! – Fuck, she’s hot!

Then to say “Holy shit!” we say PUTAIN DE MERDE! Which translates literally as “fuck shit”, so poetic, right? Talking about poetry, why not translate “Shut the fuck up!”. Any idea? It’s going to be 

  • FERME TA PUTAIN DE GUEULE!

And someone may feel the danger of a situation in which such words would be pronounce and migth exclaim: 

  • OH PUTAIN, ÇA BARDE! – Oh my God, it’s heating up!

And to finish on all our beautiful expressions of the day, let’s look at the translation of “It’s a fucking…” this or that. I’ll give you a couple of examples: 

  • CE PUTAIN D’ORDI MARCHE MÊME PAS – This fucking computer doesn’t even work.
  • C’EST UNE PUTAIN DE PLAIE – It’s a fucking pain!

EH BIEN LES AMIS,  VOUS AVEZ EU UNE PUTAIN DE LEÇON DE FRANÇAIS AUJOURD’HUI!
