a social blunder – French expression

What does ” un faux pas ” mean? How do you say ‘ a social blunder ’ in French? How is it pronounced? How is it used in a French sentence? Listen to me, a French native say it at FrenchHour.com

un faux pas – a false step –un faux pas is used with the verb FAIRE: faire un faux pas.

Literally, un faux pas means that you tripped over something. In everyday French though, which is what this podcast is all about, un faux pas means that you made a social blunder or that you did something that is perceived as not polite.

So, before you take your trip to France, check out the faux pas to avoid

  • « Ils ont commandé un café avec leur salade, c’est un petit faux pas, les Français boivent une boisson froide avec leur repas. »
    • “They ordered a coffee with their salad, it’s a small social blunder, the French have a cold drink with their meal.”
