Let's talk french in english
During my year in Ireland, I tried to write down all the french words I could hear or read in an english context. These words could have been collected from TV programs, magazine sections or books. I found about 20 french words in the english language, but there are a lots more of course. Let's take a look at them :
- Objet d'art
- Coup d'état
- Soupe du jour
The funniest is
Cul-de-sac which can be found on many road signs ! The first time I saw one like that, I was amazed.
Coup d'état is quite surprising as well.
