What does ” un sac de nœuds ” mean? How do you say ‘ a can of worms ’ 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.

un sac de noeuds (nœuds) – a bag of knots. As you can imagine if you have to untangle knots in a bag, it’s a difficult task to accomplish. In everyday French, un sac de noeuds means exactly that: a difficult situation to deal with. In English, it’s ‘a can of worms’.

  • « Toute cette paperasse est un véritable sac de noeuds. On n’arrive pas à s’en sortir. »
    • “All this paperwork is a can of worms. We can’t cope.”
