Replying to @Donata Cucinotta ask and you shall receive!

🇫🇷This French expression will definitely come in handy: “casser les pieds à quelqu’un”

It means to get on someone’s nerves! If you want to tell someone: “you’re getting on my nerves” or “you’re driving me nuts” just say “tu me casses les pieds !!”

Literally it translates to “to break somebody’s feet” but in this context the verb “casser” can also be understood as “to crush” or “to step on”. And what’s more annoying than someone stepping on your foot?! 👣

When used as a noun, “un.e casse-pieds” is someone annoying or irritating, basically “a pain in the ass”!

⚠️On the more vulgar side, you can say “tu me casses les couilles” which means “you’re breaking my balls” but use this one with caution!

✨Share this with a friend who tends to get on your nerves 😏

Replying to @Jessica ask and you shall receive!

The first phrase “tu me saoules” is actually pretty easy — just pretend the “a” isn’t even there! So the word “saoules” (from the verb “saouler”) sounds like “sool”.

The next phrase, “tu te fous de ma gueule” gets chopped up when spoken fast. When you see the “e” at the end of monosyllabic words (me, te, se, le, de, etc), you can just contract it into the next word so it sounds more fluid.
The word “gueule” looks intimidating but it just sounds like “guhl”!

Hope this helps!

Replying to @Bembu ⚠️Important French tip!

(1) The first syllable in the word “serrurerie” > “se” is an open “AY” sound like in the English word “serendipity” and NOT a closed “AY” like in the word “sane”

(2) There’s a difference between the sounds “ou” (ooh) and “u” (uu) in French and actually the “u” (uu) sound does not exist in English!

Think of the words “rendez-vous” and “deja-vu” — these are two different sounds…

Replying to @Lauren Cohen we may not say “bless you” to a stranger on the street when they sneeze but the way we say it is arguably more sweet, no? 🥰
