FRENCH LAUGHTER VOCABULARY

Learn RIRE in French & LE YOGA DU RIRE

SALUT!

COMMENT ÇA VA? VOUS AVEZ PASSÉ UN BON WEEK-END?

Let’s start the week in the most positive way, with laughter, RIONS! Do you know that laughing can actually boost the immune system, speed up a recovery and of course make your feel happier. And did you know that the body can’t make the difference between a real and a fake laugh?! Based on those various observations – among other things – Indian Doctor Madan Kataria founded Laugter yoga, LE YOGA DU RIRE. Now it’s spread over 100 countries, can you believe it! France is among those countries where people gather to do some cardio exercises and laugh! I’m personally not big on yoga, I get bored with it easily, but I’m pretty big on laughing. Today, let’s just have a good time together and learn a few words and expressions related to LE RIRE, laughter!

Come on, let it all out! It’s good for the body and the mind.

MOURIR DE RIRE – to crack up

Another one… AVOIR LE FOU RIRE…
