How To Study French With French Jokes
Here are my French tips to better your French:
- Listen to the audio without reading the transcript
- If you don’t get it, read the French transcript as you are listening to the audio of the joke (repeat as needed)
- As a last resort, read the English translation. Then listen to the audio again.
- Make sure your make French flashcards to memorise the new vocabulary.
First French Joke
Le client demande au serveur, en consultant la carte:
– Que me recommandez-vous en toute confiance ?
– Un autre restaurant…
The customer, while looking at the menu, asks the waiter:
– What would you recommend me with complete confidence?
– Another restaurant!
Second French Joke
– Quelles-sont les deux plus vieilles lettres de l’alphabet?
– Tu ne sais pas? Eh bien je vais te le dire : A-G
– What are the two oldest letters in alphabet?
– You don’t know? Well, then I’m going to tell you: aged.
Note: this one is lost in translation… A-G sounds just like agées in French, so aged.
Third French Joke
J’ai vu un Zinc
– Maman, maman, j’ai vu un zinc!
– D’accord, mais non mon chéri, il vaut mieux dire “avion”.
– Ah, d’accord : “J’avions vu un zinc.”
– Mommy, mommy, j’ai vu un zinc! (“I saw a zinc” [“Zinc” is a slang word for airplane].)
– Ok, but my darling, it’s better to say “avion.” (airplane – sounds like “nous avions”)
– Oh, OK: “J’avions vu un zinc.”
The boy obviously misunderstands his mother and comes up with a grammatically absurd sentence. French parents are often correcting their young kids on French verb tenses…
