The color yellow

Yellow is in the air.

Yellow is one of the fall colors. There are many shades of yellow – bright, golden, pale.

Yellow is also one of the colors of Thanksgiving, which is celebrated in 2 days in the United States.

Then, there are expressions that use yellow, such as ‘fake laugh’ (rire jaune), or the much coveted yellow jersey (maillot jaune) in the Tour de France.

But the color also dominates France these days in the form of the “yellow vests”. We refer to all protesters wearing road safety vests as “yellow vests”. This week, they have been demanding a reduction in the price of gasoline. They are blocking roads and gas stations, making everyday life super difficult so that they can be heard.

What makes them different from other social movements? The yellow vests organized the movement without the backing of political parties; instead, they did it through social networks. And that’s a first in France where political parties are so powerful.

They’re still rumbling on today  – and the movement is growing. Nobody yet knows if heads will roll.

So much for the news this week. Take this quiz on colors and click on all the links to review French today.

La couleur jaune – Le Blogue

Y a du jaune dans l’air.

Le jaune est une des couleurs de l’automne. Il y a le jaune citron, le jaune d’or, le jaune pâle.

C’est aussi une des couleurs de la journée d’action de grâce qui se fête dans 2 jours aux Etats-Unis.

Vous avez aussi les expressions telles que ‘rire jaune, ou le ‘maillot jaune’ du Tour si convoité.

Mais le jaune qui domine en France ces jours-ci, ce sont les « gilets jaunes ». On appelle « gilets jaunes » tous les manifestants portant ce gilet de sécurité qui réclament cette semaine une baisse de l’essence. Ils bloquent les routes et les stations-service, rendant la vie quotidienne vraiment difficile de façon à être écoutés.

Qu’est-ce qui les différencie des autres mouvements sociaux ? Les gilets jaunes se sont organisés sans les partis politiques, par les réseaux sociaux. Et ça, c’est du jamais vu en France, où les partis politiques sont si puissants.

Ils grondent encore aujourd’hui et le mouvement s’amplifie. Personne ne sait encore s’il va faire tomber des têtes.

Voilà pour les petites nouvelles de cette semaine. Faites l’interro sur les couleurs et cliquez bien sur tous les liens pour réviser du français aujourd’hui.

I’m just saying – French expression

What does ” je dis ça, je dis rien ” mean? How do you say ‘I’m just saying’ 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.

je dis ça, je dis rien – I say that, I say nothing – In everyday French, je dis ça, je dis rien or j’dis ça, j’dis rien is used when you want to tell someone they should be doing something, it’s your opinion that YOU would do things differently, but you don’t really say that. You tell people what to do without taking responsibility. I translate it as ‘I’m just saying’.

  • « Si tu pars pas faire les courses maintenant, on n’aura rien à manger ce soir car la superette va fermer. Mais bon, j’dis ça, j’dis rien. »
    • “If you don’t do the groceries now, we’ll have nothing to eat tonight because the supermarket is going to close. But hey, I’m just saying.”
