s’il vous plaît – Mot Du Jour

How To Says Prince In French

s’il vous plaît – Mot du jour

please – French expression

What does ” s’il vous plaît ” mean? How do you say ‘ please  ’ in French? How is it pronounced? How is it used in a French sentence? Listen to Anne, a French native say it at FrenchHour.com.

s’il vous plaît – if it to you please – In everyday French, s’il vous plaît means ‘please’. However, s’il vous plaît, also means ‘excuse-me, your attention please, listen up, shush’.

Today, I wanted to share my favorite ‘s’il vous plait’ ever. It’s the one in The Little Prince. Le Petit Prince is too young to master the subtleties of formal and informal French, and he uses both the TU form and the VOUS form in the same sentence. Children tend to do that type of mistake sometimes, and it’s really cute 🙂

  • « Le premier soir je me suis donc endormi sur le sable à mille milles de toute terre habitée. J’étais bien plus isolé qu’un naufragé sur un radeau au milieu de l’océan. Alors vous imaginez ma surprise, au lever du jour, quand une drôle de petite voix m’a réveillé. Elle disait :– S’il vous plaît… dessine-moi un mouton ! »
    • “The first night I thus fell asleep on the sand a thousand miles from any residential area. I was far more isolated than a shipwrecked man on a raft in the middle of the ocean. So, imagine my surprise, at dawn, when a funny little voice woke me up. It said :
      – Please… draw me a sheep! “

Say Tu Or Vous In French

TU or VOUS ? – Today’s French

Tutoyer ou vouvoyer

Learn when to use TU and when to say VOUS in French. What is the correct French way to address someone.

Comme vous le savez peut-êtreles Français sont très pointilleux sur les formalités. Il est peut-être assez compliqué de savoir quand dire TU – le tutoiement – et quand dire VOUS – le vouvoiement – car les deux se disent de la même façon en anglais.

As you may know, the French are very picky about formalities. It can be a bit delicate to figure out when to use TU and when to use VOUS because both TU and VOUS both mean YOU in English.

Règle de baseen cas de doute, dites VOUS. C’est plus sûret vous ne risquez pas de blesser quelqu’un. En attendantlisez ces consignes pour en avoir une idée.

Rule of thumb: when in doubt, use VOUS. It is safer, and you won’t risk crossing someone. However, go over these guidelines so you get a feel for TU and VOUS.

dire m_rde – Mot du Jour at FrenchHour

Say Exam In French

dire m_rde à quelqu’un – Mot du Jour

to wish someone good luck – French expression

What does ” dire merde à quelqu’un ” mean? How do you say ‘ to wish someone good luck ’ in French? How is it pronounced? How is it used in a French sentence? Listen to Anne, a French native say it at FrenchHour.com.

dire merde à quelqu’un  – to say shit to someone – I’ve hesitated a long time to introduce you to this expression because of the coarse language. However, it’s a fact: the French use a lot more crass words and expressions than English speakers do. I’m not sure what to do with that observation.

In everyday French, in a happy context, dire merde à quelqu’un means ‘to wish someone good luck’. Of course if the context is different, it can also means ‘to tell someone to go to hell’. I want to focus on the good luck context, as, even if it’s awkward,  it’s an expression you hear all the time.

If you don’t want to use this crass word, you can use the euphemistic synonym expression ‘le mot de Cambronne’ instead.

  • « Tu vas passer ton interro de français, j’te dis merde !  »
    • “You’re going to take your French quiz. Good luck! “

Masculine and Feminine QUIZ – Today’s French

Say Squash In French

French Gender – General Rules

Le genre des noms – Règles générales

Is the word masculine or feminine?

The gender – knowing if a word is masculine or feminine – is not always logical. For instance, why do you say un livre (a book) and une livre (half a pound)?

My advice, learn the gender of a noun – masculine or feminine – at the same time you learn a new word. It’s painless and is going to save you time later.

Quiz - French Gender – General Rules - This quiz is interactive at FH.

Décidez entre le masculin ou féminin, d'après la fin du mot. -- Decide between the masculine or feminine form, according to the ending of the word.
