BONJOUR !

J’AI UN SCOOP POUR VOUS AUJOURD’HUI !

4% of French words are of English origin.

And guess what… AUTRE SCOOP ? Two thirds of English words are actually of French origin. OH MY GOD. I’m being serious guys. I couldn’t believe it myself.

I have very good news for you guys who want to be able to communicate in French fast ! The French language actually uses a bunch of English words. Some French people are actually very worried that the English language is gonna take over LA LANGUE MOLIÈRE ! LE FRANÇAIS SERAIT-IL « HAS BEEN » ?

The list of English words used in French and that I could teach you is endless. So I thought I’d just focus on English words used in a party context, and in a business context. I’ll start with the party vocab.

SCENE WITH ENGLISH WORDS USED FOR PARTY TIMES

ÇA VOUS DIT DE VENIR AVEC MOI FAIRE LA TEUF ? ON PEUT COMMENCER LA SOIRÉE DANS UN PUB, PENDANT LA HAPPY HOUR, POUR BOIRE DES COCKTAILS, ET PRENDRE UN SNACK – OU UN SANDWICH SI VOUS PRÉFÉREZ. APRÈS, ON IRA ONDULER NOS CORPS SUR LE DANCE FLOOR D’UN NIGHT CLUB. ON DANSERA LE ROCK ‘N ROLL, LE SWING OU LA SALSA. NON, PAS DE STRIP-TEASE ! AH BON ? ALORS BYE BYE.

See how much you know ? Even if you don’t speak a word of French you can hear words such as LA HAPPY HOUR, LE DANCE FLOOR, DES COCKTAILS, and understand the whole conversation.

Ok, so the only difficulty is now to know the gender of each English word. Yes, each asexual English word is given a feminine or a masculine in French. Most of them seem to be masculine. But basically, just learn the gender as you learn the « Frenchized » words.

C’EST LA LOSE ? MAIS NON ! SOYONS FAIR-PLAY, C’EST COOL DE DÉJÀ CONNAÎTRE TOUS CES MOTS ANGLAIS.

Now, as I’ve told you before, in a work environment, you’re very likely to use lots of English words too. Is it because English native speakers work harder ? Of course not ! Ok. Well, who cares, what matters is that if you’re learning French for business, you’ve got a head start !

BONJOUR, JE SUIS MANAGER EN MARKETING. JE TRAVAILLE POUR UNE START-UP. AUJOURD’HUI C’EST LE RUSH ! J’AI UN MEETING DANS UNE HEURE POUR UN BRAINSTORMING AVEC LE BOSS ET DES SPONSORS. J’AI BESOIN D’UN BREAK. TROP DUR LE BUSINESS ! ENFIN, HEUREUSEMENT, CE SOIR, ON VA TOUS AU PUB PENDANT LA HAPPY HOUR, BOIRE DES COCKTAILS, DES SHOTS. PUIS DIRECTION LE DANCE FLOOR DU NIGHT CLUB.

VOIX OFF : C’EST L’HEURE DU MEETING BRAINSTORMING AVEC LES SPONSORS!

OH LA LOSE. SUPER TIMING ! OÙ EST MON SMARTPHONE ? VIVEMENT LE WEEK-END.

So, between the words you guys stole from us Frenchies, and the ones we, Frenchies, stole from you guys, we’re all set ! You can start speaking French confidently knowing that we can all understand each other ! Isn’t that what communication is about. LA COMPRÉHENSION !
