In this video, we’ll be talking about the 10 Must-know Words to Party in France. Let’s begin! fête "party" A party is a fun thing to do, a place where you can meet other people and spend time together. Je vais à une fête d'anniversaire ce soir. "I'm going to a birthday party this evening." danser "dance" It’s common to dance at parties. Elle aime danser. "She likes to dance." boîte "club" Clubs are places with loud music, where you can dance and look for a date! You can invite your friends by saying... On va en boîte ce soir? "Do you want to go to a club tonight?" manger "eat" It's very common to eat at a party. Qui a mangé le dernier morceau de gâteau? "Who ate the last piece of cake?" Yeah, I hate that! festival "festival" Festivals are usually less informal than parties and last for more than one day. Nous allons à ce festival chaque année. "We go to this festival every year." For example, you can go to Coachella. Coachella? boire "drink" Drinking together is also a way to party and have fun. But be careful! Elle a trop bu. "She drank too much." Yeah, please don't drink too much. Just drink water, it's enough for you. French people say Santé! when touching glasses before a toast. Santé! "Cheers!" Santé! devenir ivre "to get drunk" This is very common as people usually drink a lot at parties! Il est devenu ivre au bout de deux verres seulement. "He got drunk after only two drinks." Don't do that, that's not good. musique "music" Music is necessary to warm up the atmosphere at parties. It is also a good conversation-starter. For example, you can say... Quel est ton genre de musique préféré? "What is your favorite kind of music?" I love R&B. ami(e) "friend" Parties are made to make friends! Je sors avec mes ce amis ce week-end. "I'll go out with my friends this weekend." Okay, so that's all for this lesson. Have you had any party experience in France? If so, let us know in the comments. And we'll see you next time! À bientôt
