FRENCH SLANG / ONLINE / SATURDAY 04-29-23
“L’argot vit sur la langue,” Victor Hugo writes. Slang lives on the tongue. Today, if you want to speak like a real French person, you have to master l’argot, as you will hear sentences that are made up of at least 50% slang.
We believe it’s important that our students appreciate both le français soutenu (formal French) and le français familier (informal French). Indeed, French slang is not just about bad words and cursing! It includes frequently used synonyms (une caisse = une voiture), the contraction and pronunciation of words (chui = je suis) as well and other structural specificities such as le verlan (une teuf = une fête).
Intrigued? Then join Keveen for this French Slang workshop! He will help you navigate those concepts and bring your French to the next level!
