How French sounds (light hearted video link)

I’ve seen several comments on some of the discussions saying how they thought that what was being said in French sounded like something completely wild and off topic in English. I understand it because I have the same problem at times. In pure coincidence, this link came up on a Facebook post I saw and it struck a cord.

I’ve posted it here, hoping that it doesn’t offend, especially any Edith Piaff fans, in the hope that it provide a giggle for anyone having a hard day.

Hope it works. Warning, the last ‘page’ is a tad rude.

That's clever and funny. Good way to put a spin on mistakes and misunderstandings, and have fun with it.

I've just this week started to hear French as at least individual words instead of a slurry jumble...after two years of study! I have no idea how long before I can understand, but just making out distinct words is a win. Thanks for the laugh!

I didn’t realise the link would expire and then I had to look for it on YouTube, so sorry for the delay.....
