Transcript of the Video Lesson on French Exclamations

OH LÀ LÀ !

WOUAH !

QUOI !

COMMENT !

PUTAIN !

AH MERDE !

OH LE CON !

Salut !

Yeah, the mood is set ! In this video we’re focusing on feelings and more feelings ! Because that’s what exclamations allow you to express : a strong emotional reaction to something or someone. They’re obviously very important in letting the steam out ! So, let’s master them and observe their structures when needed – so that you reproduce the pattern of course !

I’ve started with introductory exclamations that don’t need to be broken down really in terms of the structure. They’re just words for you to learn. Here are some more ! You’ll see that some of them include a noun and an article, and sometimes an adjective too!

NON !

SI !

OH PUTAIN LE BEAU MEC !

OH LE PORC!

OH LA LOSE !

OH LÀ LÀ !

Some exclamations just have a subject and a verb, and they allow you to express indignation scepticism, or outrage when confronted with an impossible situation… Am I being carried away ?

TU DÉRAILLES !

TU VEUX RIRE !

TU PLAISANTES !

J’HALLUCINE !

J’Y CROIS PAS !

Example of a situation where exclamations may very well come up :

A: IL M’A POSÉ UN LAPIN.

B: NON, J’Y CROIS PAS.

A: BEN SI. J’HALLUCINE.

Let’s continue with other simple types of exclamations. Just one adjective to let out the excitement !

SUPER !

CHOUETTE !

HORRIBLE !

BLUFFANT !

And you can start these sames little phrases with French « it is », C’EST…

C’EST SUPER !

C’EST CHOUETTE!

C’EST HORRIBLE !

C’EST BLUFFANT !

You can even add QU’EST-CE QUE in front of all that…

QU’EST-CE QUE C’EST SUPER !

QU’EST-CE QUE C’EST CHOUETTE !

QU’EST-CE QUE C’EST HORRIBLE !

QU’EST-CE QUE C’EST BLUFFANT !

In a familiar context, we’ll also have the option of using the little word TROP in an exclamation :

TROP BEAU ! Or C’EST TROP BEAU !

TROP CHELOU ! / C’EST TROP CHELOU !

Here are more familiar expressions with simple structures for you to learn:

COMME C’EST DOMMAGE ! – What a shame it iss

COMME C’EST GENTIL ! – How kind it is !

COMME C’EST GENTIL DE SA PART ! – How kind of his !

COMME C’EST MALIN ! – How cunning !

Then you’ve got exclamations with QUELLE followed by a feminine noun :

QUELLE CHALEUR ! – How hot it is!

QUELLE IDÉE ! – What a strange idea!

QUELLE DRÔLE D’IDÉE ! – What a funny idea!

QUELLE CHANCE ! – How lucky!

QUELLE POISSE ! – Such bad luck!

And exclamations with QUEL and a masculine noun :

QUEL FROID ! – Such cold!

QUEL NASE ! – What a lame guy!

QUEL MEC CANON ! – What a hot guy!

QUEL AMI SERVIABLE ! – What a helpful friend!

And in the plural for, you can have :

QUELS AMIS SERVIABLES ! – What helpful friends!

QUELLES DRÔLES D’IDÉES ! – What funny ideas!

Then you can have QUE DE to translate SO MUCH, and which is followed by whatever it is you’re overwhelmed by…

QUE DE BONHEUR !

QUE D’AMOUR !

QUE DE CONNERIES, OUI !

Next, you can have exclamations starting with QUE + A SUBJECT + A VERB. Let’s give it a go :

QU’IL EST NASE CE MEC, FRANCHEMENT !

QU’IL FAIT CHAUD !

QU’IL FAIT BEAU !

QUE ÇA SENT BON ICI ! C’EST VOUS ?

And here again, you can also add QU’EST-CE QUE at the beginning of your exclamation, so that you’ll have :

QU’EST-CE QU’IL EST NASE CE MEC, FRANCHEMENT !

QU’EST-CE QU’IL FAIT CHAUD !

QU’EST-CE QU’IL FAIT BEAU !

QU’EST-CE QUE ÇA SENT BON ICI ! C’EST VOUS ? – 

VOILÀ VOILÀ, LES AMIS. EXCLAMEZ-VOUS ! Express your excitement in French, now that you know how to ! What did I just hear ?

QU’EST-CE QUE C’EST DUR LE FRANÇAIS ! – How difficult French is!

FOUTAISES ! – Nonsense!

Stay positively excited guys, it always help to learn!

QU’EST-CE QUE C’EST COOL D’APPRENDRE LE FRANÇAIS ! – How cool it is to be learning French!

BEN SUPER ! À PLUS !
