French Riddles, Jokes and Puns – 11 (with audio)

By Mostafa Abedinifard on July 15, 2013

Jokes and puns in French are a fun way to train on your speaking abilities and pronunciation: memorize them by heart, and then tell them to your French speaking friends, or your classmates. It’s a good way to start the day!

How To Study French With These French Jokes?

First, listen to the audio of the French joke without reading the text.

Repeat a couple of times and see if you can understand. If not, first look at the French transcript of the joke while the audio is playing: did you get it this time?

As a last ressort, look at the translation and of course, learn the new words of vocabulary if need be!
