Lesson Transcript

Lya: Welcome back to French weekly words. Watchers, it’s your face. Your face, both of us or actually mine. First word is:
1. bouche
Bouche, the mouth.
Having a big mouth. Avoir une grande bouche.
Ovular la bouche. Open your mouth.
bouche, mouth.
2. dents
Next is teeth, dents is teeth.
I have white teeth. J'ai les dents blanches.
Because I brush three times a day, and so should you.
3. Next is: lèvres
Lèvres, lips.
Having red lips. Avoir les lèvres rouges. In English, I think what you have a word on the tip of your tongue. In French, you have it on the border of your lips.
A kiss on the lips. Un bison sur les lèvres. Boyfriend!
4. menton
Menton, chin.
Se reposer sur son menton. To rest on your chin.
5. nez
Nez, nose, le nez.
Having the runny nose. Avoir le nez qui coule. When you are sick and take this chance to go back and see the sick words, sick French words.
When its cold, your nose gets red. Quand il fait froid, votre nez devient rouge. Everything gets red on my face. I should do something about it.
Next one is the end. So don’t forget to check the list of words for this week and maybe leave me a comment about Face and see you next week for more French words. Bye.

Bonjour Tim,

Merci pour ton commentaire, j'espère que ton apprentissage se passe bien ! 😄


Bonjour Careyotani,

Effectivement il faut dire, "Qu'est-ce qu'on peut apercevoir en regardant les yeux de quelqu'un ?"


Bonjour Danny,

Oui, you're right. "Face" (in FR) is actually quite pejorative, but you can also use it as a joke (French people do like to joke around by throwing criticism at each other's face!), so be careful when using it.

As for the little English jokes you wrote down, they'd work in French as well, but I'd actually recommend using "tronche" instead of "face" or "visage". This is a familiar term for "face" that isn't quite as vulgar as "gueule", so it's the perfect in-between if you'd like to be sarcastic without actually insulting someone. 😉


Belle journée,

Marion

"Votre Face"


She says this casually. Would it be more socially acceptable to say it that way rather than saying it like: "Votre Visage" ?


Also, in spirit of good humor, I usually respond to negative comments with "your face"


A: "That's ugly!"

B: "Your face."


A: "That doesn't make any sense!"

B: "Your face."


Feel free to get creative, I find it fun. 😎


Could this technically work in French?

Asking for a friend.😇

Je pense qu'il faut dire "Qu'est-ce qu'on peut apercevoir en regardant les yeux de quelqu'un?"

Merci beaucoup Tim pour votre gentil message !

En effet c'est toujours plus difficile de le parler à cause de la timidité, la peur de se tromper, et il faut chercher ses mots.

Mais il ne faut pas hésiter et parler quand même, c'est comme cela qu'on progresse !


Bonne journée !
