Oops : "French faux pas" !

Everyone knows that we learn by making mistakes. Indeed, when we start to speak a new language, we often tend to translate things literally.

But sometimes, this can lead to situations that you would like to quickly forget about.

Funny or embarassing, each of us have been, at least once, confronted with such a situation.

Today, let's discover a list created by "theintrepideguide.com" to avoid any French faux-pas.

"Je prends les cours avec Anissa depuis 2 ans. Elle est très bienveillante et professionnelle. Son but principal est de vous faire parler, donc chaque fois j'ai beaucoup parlé lors d'un cours, mais c'était tellement utile. Anissa explique facilement toutes les questions posées. Les sujets de ces cours sont actuels et intéressants. Je la recommande !"
