French from English. Had déjà vu lately? In

a restaurant or café, you may start the meal

with an aperitif, perhaps Champagne, and you

may find pâté or omelette is served and end

with soufflé or mousse for dessert.

When it comes to tongue twisters –

virelangues – it gets a little more challenging

but you’re sure to recognise some of the words

in these examples:

Les chaussettes de l’archiduchesse sont-elles

sèches, archi-sèches?

Are the Archduchess’ socks dry, very dry?

Or how about this tongue twister that’s full of

words that sound the same, but are written

differently, known as homophones:

Si six scies scient six cyprès, six cents scies

scient six cent cyprès

If six saws saw six cypresses, six hundred saws

saw six hundred cypresses

And this one is perfect for practicing your ‘on’s

and ‘en’s and ‘ou’s and ‘ue’s:

‘Tonton, ton thé t’a-t-il ôté ta toux’ disait la

tortue au tatou. ‘Mais pas du tout’, dit le tatou.

‘Je tousse tant que l’on m’entend de Tahiti à

Tombouctou.’

‘Uncle, your tea has cured your cough,’ said

the tortoise to the armadillo. ‘Not at all,’ said

the armadillo. ‘I cough so much that you can

hear me from Tahiti to Timbuktu.’
