“All of a sudden” is a great phrase to know. This week in French, I learned some new phrases. Phrases that people say, but they don’t teach you in French class.
“Grasse-matinée,” a fat morning was fun. This came up because the kids are on vacation. In England, they call it a “lay in” or “lie in” ( I’ll let you work out the correct google terminology ). I was trying to convey the American equivalent, but came up short. American’s don’t lay in much. They get up and get to work. But I do remember, back when I was a teen, I would “sleep in” during a week of vacation. So perhaps, that would work.
I’m very happy to report that I no longer speak in the past tense when I mean the present tense. Also, through crazy Lego video thingies, I stumbled upon this video about learning French which I found most amusing.
