Well… It IS France

| Learning | January 2, 2017

(I am a French language assistant in Northern Ireland, teaching a group of three girls, in a conservative grammar school.)

Me: “Qu’est ce que vous avez fait pendant les vacances?” *What did you do during your holidays?*

Girl #1: *quite confidently* “Je suis très fatiguée parce que j’ai beaucoup couché”.

(I was so surprised that I started to laugh uncontrollably for a few minutes.)

Me: “You just said: I’m very tired because I slept around a lot.”

(Girls #2 and #3 started laughing, too, while Girl #1 turned red. By the way, she was trying to say that she was really tired so she slept a lot.)
