Lesson Transcript

Welcome back, watchers! Today we are going to learn about what adjective describes your personality best. Let's go!
1. intelligent "smart"
"Are you smart?" Êtes-vous intelligent?
"I'm the smartest." Je suis la plus intelligente.
or Je suis le plus intelligent, if you’re a guy.
2. émotif "emotional"
I remember that one time I got really emotional because we ate all the apples, and there was the last apple standing by itself, and I got really sad for the apple because it was all alone.
#truestory
Les films me rendent émotif. "Movies make me emotional."
And then when the guy loves a girl but he dies in the end, and then they cannot be together ever again, like in The Bridges of Madison County, this was super sad and made me emotional.
"What makes you emotional?" Qu'est-ce qui vous rend émotif?
Leave a comment and tell me.
3. cool "cool"
You can just draw the cool sunglasses on my face.
"I am so cool." Je suis trop cool.
4. honnête "honest"
Je vais être honnête avec vous. "I'm going to be honest with you."
This is one simple sentence you don't want to hear because then something really bad is going to follow that.
5. paresseux "lazy"
"You are very lazy." Vous êtes très paresseux.
Paresseux is also the French name for "sloths”.
"I am very lazy." Je suis très paresseuse.
"Being lazy is nice." Être paresseux, c'est bien.
From time to time.
6. drôle "funny"
"I'm not funny." Je ne suis pas drôle.
"Of course I'm funny." Bien sûr je suis drôle.
"What's so funny?" Qu'est-ce qu'il y a de si drôle?
7. romantique "romantic"
"I had a romantic weekend." J’ai passé un week-end romantique.
"A romantic dinner." Un dîner romantique.

"A serious subject." Un sujet sérieux.
"My teacher is very serious." Mon professeur est très sérieux.
9. amical "friendly"

It's not true, he's just tricking you to give him food, and then it will slash your fase when you’re asleep.
"She is very friendly." Elle est très amicale.
10. grincheux "bad tempered"
This is also the name of the dwarf in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Grincheux is the one that's always grumpy, so you can also say grumpy. So in French it’s Grincheux.
"My grandma is really bad-tempered." Ma grand-mère est très grincheuse.
11. généreux "generous"
Yeah, sometimes, if you are my friend and you don't have money and I would pay everything for you, and you don't have to give it back because you're my friend.
