Part 3 – Interesting French expressions.

Those untranslatable, uniquely French sayings…

  1. Ever slept through the whole morning? In France one says <<dormir la grasse matinée>>
  2. If you miss a rendez-vous, you would use the expression <<poser un lapin>>
  3. It’s perhaps rare in France, but terrible wine is <<vin à faire danser les chèvres>> (wine that makes goats dance)
