You have written the following "vis, to screw" but viser means to screw. The word "vis" means "I saw" or informal, "you saw" in the passé sample.

Bonjour Lori,


Il faut dire "je sais, c'est très mal".

En effet, c'est mauvais pour les dents mais je suis comme vous, je fais la même chose ! 😳


Bonne journée

Bonjour Speelos !


Merci pour votre message !

If you are talking about the tool, drill in French is "perceuse" .

If you are talking about the training exercice it's "exercice".


Bonne journée et à bientôt !
