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

French is spoken by an estimated 274 million people in the world, but that doesn't mean it's a walk in the park. French pronunciation has up to 17 vowels depending on the dialect, and most of them are nasal. Many words sound 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. Oh, and also we must not forget the funny French way of counting! Adding all of this together, French sure seems like the hardest language to learn.

Whether you consider yourself a Francophile, or you've barely mastered bonjour, these struggles will be all too real. To make the French learning process a bit easier we've compiled some really funny jokes about it, so at least you can practice your laughing in French.

In some part of the Philippines, we say "i have a visitor" or "i have been reached" when saying 'i have a period' . And if someone is asking 'do you have a period?' we reply ''yes, i have been visited / i have a visitor" or "yes, i have (something)". These are all literal translations.

In Poland there is similar thing in naming period that I really hate because it is soooo much nonsense - "ciocia z Ameryki" which translates to "aunt from America" and I literally don't know how this somehow made it to be commonly known.

Actually more like "oil of nut of coco", or else French would be "huile de la noix du coco" whereas it's "huile de noix de coco". Makes sense.

Same with Italian: "Mi stai rompendo i coglioni". Similar with Croatian: "Ideš mi na kurac" (you're going on my penis).
