She felt guilty refusing his hospitality, and tried to do so by praising other things on the table. In particular, the betterave. So she used the English one and hoped it translated.

Okay, this first one is not mine, an American born French teacher told us this story, and I still find it great. Mine was not nearly so exciting but in some ways a bit worse. Likely the equivalent of a student learning English sounding like a character from Little Women or Downton Abbey. Albeit, definitely a much less fluent version of such. Anyway, my very old dictionary finally did me wrong, I wound up using baiser very much incorrectly.
So, I knew it was bad, and I was quite embarrassed and thenceforth unable to trust my very old French-English dictionary. The problem of dictionaries is that the definition they give tend to be the formal one, and there can be a huge difference between what a word is supposed to mean and how people understand it.

I just realized what it meant. Glad you liked the article :. That and getting rid of my French accent in English. Merci pour le commentaire. My French teacher once told us that when he took his very first French class, he had learned a few phrases from a friend, so he wanted to show off to his teacher.
Not exactly. Merci beaucoup pour le article. I think what a lot of people are forgetting is that there is a mixture here. French in Canada Is very different from French anywhere else in the world and regionalisms also makes a difference.

For example, etre plein in some regions of France means you are pregnant where as in French Canada outside Quebec it just means you are full of food. And etre chaud in Canada can also mean to be high. Bonne chance a tous. But even inside France, some words have totally different meanings depending on the region.
Quite a big difference :D. Yet very few French learners are aware of it. It was essentially a whorehouse on wheels. Years later, I was reading an account of the war by a retired French general. We learn something every day. I was talking to two French workmen about how I protected some window trim from moisture by saying I used a wood preservative. When they both smiled I realized I had said I had applied a wooden condom. A French friend emailed me about how strange the English language was.
How do I ask questions in French?
I asked him to explain the gender of la bite and le vagin. He said he had never thought about it. You need to think that the words have a gender, not their meaning. Otherwise nothing makes sense. What should I do to improve my speaking and listening skills? Some are weird, like je suis cochonne, because you pretend to use a noun as an adjective. Manifestement, nous ne parlons pas la meme langue. Of course!!! Have even made non-French speaking people giggle at this!

Could have been extremely awkward, but fortunately he had a good sense of humour!
En anglais: I am excited.
En francais: I am sexually excited. Which basically means you want to have sex with that person.
podsitibene.cf Merci beaucoup pour votre aide! It may have a sexual missinterpretation. Then there was this other time when I was in my French class at school and I had to translate a very weird paragraph about two people in their seventies having an affair. I once said je suis exite with an accent! It does not in fact mean exited but horny… woops. Its too franco manitobaine apparently.
So glad I found this article again!
Announcing to everyone that you are up the duff is a great way to end a meal.. God knows what he interpreted that as. The latter meaning something completely different in slang :D. Thanks, this was a fun read. Arf, this can easily happen. I was living in Bretagne for a month on a foreign exhange. You are right. What if you meant rooster male chicken as opposed to hen or poule — in a conversation about farming or animal husbandry? Chickens that are kept for laying are usually les poules, young chickens that you are going to eat are les poulets because they have nice tender meat when they are young.
Not all French people are going to know the differences between un poulet and une poule, just as not all English people know the difference between a hen and a pullet.
