While the language of love is known for being charming and sophisticated, French is also pretty ridiculous sometimes. Let's celebrate a few of its moments that really made us mort de rire.


Show Full Text

French is spoken by an estimated 274 million people in the world, but that doesn't mean it's a walk in the park. It has up to 17 vowels depending on the dialect, and most of them are nasal. Many words sound exactly the same, but mean completely different things. Everything has a gender. It can take days of examining your relationship to someone before you figure out if it's more polite to call them tu or vous.

Whether you consider yourself a Francophone, or you've barely mastered bonjour, these struggles will be all too real.
