The recent edition of the French dictionary “Le Petit Robert” is now available and contains some interesting new French-Canadian expressions! While some eagerly await the arrival of new car models, others patiently await the appearance of new words in the dictionary. I happen to be one of those people who patiently wait to see how my favorite language is once again transformed by the addition of new words and expressions.
Here’s a peek at this year’s evolution of the French language which is continually influenced by the way in which people employ it worldwide.
· Agent de bord
· Bar laitier
· Accrocher ses patins
· Se sucrer le bec
· Passer dans le beurre
· Faire quelque chose des deux mains.
Even without the addition of new words and expressions, learning French is hard. Maybe this year it will be a bit easier… because after all, we all know how to pronounce Jello!
