FRENCH FRIDAY 9

December 13, 2013


Happy Friday my little French students! With the Holidays here I am assuming you have a lot of dinners and parties to attend. This can be a stressful time, you want to be polite to the host about the food they're serving, but you also want to be honest. This is a fine balance, you don't want to offend them and would like to be asked back next year. But at the same time you want them to know how you really feel about the dinner you just consumed. So instead of embarrassing yourself and the host, why not compliment her or criticize her in French? They will be none the wiser and you can leave the party with your head held high knowing you were as truthful as can be. 

Lesson Of The Week

Phrases:


Fais-moi à bouffer. = Fix me something to eat.


J'ai très faim! = I'm very hungry!


Allons chercher de la bouffe. = Let's get some grub.


Miam miam! = Yum yum!


Miam! C'etait vraiment réussi. = Yum! That was delicious.


C'est super bon! = It's really good!


Typically you are expecting dinner to be delicious, but on the off chance it's not you can tell your host these following phrases...


Je vais pas bouffer cette pourriture. = I'm not gonna eat this garbage.


Beurk! = Yuck!


C'est dégueulasse. = It's disgusting.


Ils te font manger de la merde. = Their food is crap.


Fais la vaiselle. = Do the dishes.


For those of you are not attending any Holiday parties or dinners this year don't fret, save these for the new year when you attend just a regular dinner party. They really are the perfect way to sound like the best guest and also very cultured. I am sure the host will think "Wow! They speak French, they must have great taste in food and think mine is amazing." or at least we hope that's what they think. 


If you are feeling extra lovey dovey this Weekend, I think you should look deep into your lover's eyes and say the phrases from last week's lesson.
