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.
