french in one word

While I know it might be a little cliché perhaps (because who doesn’t love a little, French?!), one of my favourite languages is, well … French.

As I’m writing this post, I’m sipping on red wine, listening to La Foule by Edith Piaf.

It’s the most beautiful language.

Ah, the language of luuurve. 

Its sound. Its melody. It is a beautiful language.

What’s not to love about words like bisous and jolie and even pamplemousse

Everything sounds better in French.

While there are many stunning French words and phrases, if you want to be fluent in French (I’m told), and quickly … there is only one word you need to know.

DRUM. ROLL. PLEASE. 

Putain! 

… which literally means whore.

A magical word

According to the YouTube channel, MiChmski, “this word is powerful”. In fact, it’s “magical”.

While it “literally means, whore”, “not literally, it means everything else”. And according to MiChmski, in French, you only really need one word.

French – it’s easy, right?!

However, a quick little lesson: using this “one magical word” is all about the inflection, so how you say it – your tone.

MiChmski says you want to “change it slightly to fit the situation”.

For example: Meet someone new? Putain. Hungry? Ah, Putain. Kissing your French boyfriend? Oh, PUTAIN!

You get me?! 

Anyhoo. Watch this clip and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

French – it’s easy!
