Hej dear readers, i need your help !

sacre bleu! Also, my favourite word to say (just because it feels nice to say) from my one year of high school french was "poisson"!

Little Style Box said...

Very difficult to say: it would be vivement dimanche :)

littlebyrd said...

Au revoir. Love the way it sounds - so romantic and elegant.

Maria said...

I don't know why, but the first word that popped up in my mind was "de rien" and the second "escargot" :D
I love french but not sure if these words are my favourite..
Exciting! Hope you'll soon tell us what it's about:)

I've tagged you!

famapa said...

I like "mon oeil" and "tous le temps" and "mais ca va pas non????"...

so curious what your project is!

Casey said...

My friends and I used to say "mon dieu!" all the time because our French teacher used to say it a lot.
ha, I'm not sure I spelled it right, though.

Lisa said...

well, I really like "c'est bonne" because it always makes me giigle. Also, "le bit du bacon", although that's probably Quebec french.

Maija said...

I use "oui" constantly, so it's my favourite word to use in that sense. But the expression I like the most is "je t'aime". Cheesy? Me? Nooo way.

MissCarrie said...

"incroyable" - that's something to use in almost any situation...

Camilla said...

I wish I could help you, but I don't speak a word of French :( Sorry!

Little Rascal said...

I think the word "Merci" is so cute, it sounds so sweet and it's a big word too.
Merci for being a friend for example.

Good luck sweetness!

Liesje said...

"coup de foudre" is wreally nice I think , it means , falling in love on first sight.

jillian-anne said...

"je ne sais pas" it sounds so dismissive and chic. i imagine a terribly trendy french woman with a cigarette in one hand saying it as she flicks her other hand away

Renate said...

I know someone who loves the word 'poubelle'. He loves the word because it sounds elegant, not because of the beautiful meaning haha. I don't have a favourite French expression or word, I love the whole language...

Mischat said...

i like in french "le chat qui sourit" because "souris" is a mouse and cats like it very much !
and you can draw it easy....

Gretchen said...

i also like "c'est bonne" as well as "oh la la". Although anything spoken in French sounds lovely.

good luck with your project!

Je ne dis rien, je suis française !
Mais j'adore ton blog !

tant pis

Ivonne from Self Exposed said...

I most confess I say "Merde" a lot... but if I had to chose, I would rather go with "Je t'aime". Doesn't sound better in any other language, I think.

Eduardo Palandi said...

my favourite one: "je suis desolée"

Anonymous said...

mine is "trompe l'oeil" crazy how good it sounds and the subtle meaning it has - i cant think of anything better! i love it! x

mybrouhaha said...

en même temps c'est plutôt difficile de répondre à cette question quand on est français... pas vraiment étonnant, mais j'aime beaucoup le mot brouhaha et les mots en "ette" couette, piplette...

notebookdoodles said...

i'm not one who speaks french but i do love the word "amour" probably because of its meaning.

I had a joke going on with a French girl I shared house with in Australia last year. Everytime she spoke with her boyfriend I picked up the word "truc" which I found out means "thing". She told me that she uses the word a lot as a substitute for other words in a sentence - we do the same in Danish sometimes. I like it better in French though - "truc" sounds cool.
Even though pommes frites is a great word too! ;D

beruta said...

I don`t speak french, but I`m in love with the way it sounds... So I can`t choose just one word, sorry :)

- café noisette
- je suis desolée
- vivre
- oh la la!
- petit pois

happy project making!

Mischat said...

many strangers like this song of Edith Piaf : "la vie en rose" very famous every where in the world.
idea from my neighbour Copé.

Betsey said...

oh this is beautiful!
my favorite french expression (and one of the VERY few I know) would have to be bisou!
oh and je' taime of course! did i even spell that right?
oh well..

bisou!

liv said...

"mais c'est quoi ça?"

Copé said...

mille idées mais le son "on" est très français bonbon, coton pompon, ronron and so on

marmalade said...

l'esprit d'escalier which is translated as spirt of the staircase and the meaning is when you think of just what you could have said after the moment has passed my life is full of l'esprit d'escalier

le plus chouette c'est quant même
"ciel! mon mari!"
