From The French Language - Je Ne Sais Quoi!



marynualaMarynuala on 09/10/2008

FromTheFrenchLanguageJeNeSaisQuoi Photo The use of French words and phrases add elegance to the English language. For example, it is much nicer to say "au fait with" than "well informed", or "debutante" rather than "beginner". A lot of French expressions used in English, however, differ expansively from their native translations as demonstrated by this quiz.

Bon chance!

This quizz was fun but kinda weird. If we take it as literral translation then it's more or less accurate (number 8 would mean "to God" and what's more only if it was written A dieu. "Adieu" like that means good bye. All those expression don't mean, in french, the literal translation of them. Anyway it was fun though to see some french on sploofus.
