Say Caviar In French

la gauche caviar - mot du jour at FrenchHour.com

limousine liberal or champagne socialist – French expression

What does ” la gauche caviar ” mean? How do you say ‘limousine liberal or champagne socialist’ 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.

la gauche caviar – the left caviar. In everyday French, la gauche means ‘the left’, but la gauche also describes the left wing of the French Parliament and all the liberals in general. The expression la gauche caviar is slightly derogatory and underlines the paradox between being a liberal – often a socialist in France – and still having a privileged and cozy way of life. I’ve heard a limousine liberal in English. And Colin, a student had this translation of ‘a champagne socialist’ that I find wonderful. Thank you, Colin.

  • « Comment veux-tu qu’elle comprenne ce que les SDF vivent ? Elle a deux maisons de campagne. Elle est une gauche caviar. »
    • “How do you suspect she could understand what the homeless are going through? She owns two vacation houses. She’s a limousine liberal/champagne socialist.”

On s'éclate – Le Blogue

Did you know?

The French are having a blast today ?

The Blues have reached the soccer World Cup final. That’s what dominates the news today.

The Tour de France racers are in Brittany. They’re cycling right now between Lorient and Quimper.

But do you know what a “Blue” or “a Quimper” are, or how Lorient got its name?

A Blue is a player on the French national soccer team, Lorient – or L’Orient – is named that way because of the beautiful West – Orient – Sun you can admire there, and a Quimper is an earthenware known to all in France.

Here are some strands of French trivia. I’m thinking you could challenge yourself with the quiz below and see how much French trivia you know.

The way to do it is to get at least 90% three times in a row.

Tell me how much you got, I’m interested: -)
