The French method of educating their children is all the rage – clearly a superior method of education. So I thought you’d appreciate learning how to scold your kids in French. At the very least it will stop them from rolling their eyes at you.
They’ll have no idea what you’re saying!
Here are the six expressions we will be learning in this week’s tongue-in-cheek vlog.
1. Gentle Command:
Tu obéis s’il te plaît.
“You’ll obey please.”
And … je compte jusqu’au trois.
“I”ll count to three.”
2. Simple Question:
Mais qu’est ce que c’est que ça?
3. Sarcastic Question:
Non, mais … tu veux que je t’aide?
“No … you want me to help you?”
4. Sharp Rebuke:
Ne parle pas à Papa comme ça!
“Don’t speak to your father like that!”
Ca va pas la tête?
“Is your head unwell?”
6. Guantlet Thrown (you talkin’ to me?)
Ca suffit maintenant! J’en ai assez!
“Now that’s enough. I’ve had enough.”
And the auxiliary vocabulary for the day is bétise. It means act of mischief.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s important French lesson!
