One time during my freshmen year of college I forgot to do a history paper that was worth 20% of my grade and the teacher didn’t accept late work, so I waited until the professor handed back the papers and angrily asked where mine was. The teacher felt so bad for losing it he let me re-do the entire paper and gave me an A-
You fucking champ

I’ve been in a lot of roleplays and I often find many foreign characters, the majority of them from the U.K or Australia; but I have also found french ones who don’t exactly speak french. This is a masterlist of casual terms that your character can use on any convo or para, to make it more real. Includes some curses and ‘big words’.
I will be updating this post.
- 'Salut!' - Hi!
- 'Bonjour' - Good morning.
- 'Bon soir' - Good afternoon.
- 'Bonne nuit.' - Good night.
- 'Ça va?’ - How are you/How’s the going?
- ‘D’accord !’ - (or just D’acc.) Ok, general agreement.
- 'Oh mon Dieu' - Oh my God.
- ‘Mon Dieu!’ - My God.
- ‘Chouette !’ - Cool!
- ‘Vaseux’ - Dazed, confused
- ‘Charabia.” - Nonesense.
- ‘Arrete!’ - Stop!
- 'Au revoir.' - Goodbye.
- ‘Fais gaffe!’ - Be careful!
- ‘Prends soin.’ - Take Care.
This one is very important if your character is french:
- ‘Allez les bleus !!’ - Go Blues! (National Football Soccer Team)
THE SLANG (OR ARGOT):
Here’s what I remember (it’s not much, i know)
- ‘meuf’ - Girl, chick. (femme backwards, the verslan way.)
- ‘gars’ - Guys, boys (Short for garcon)
- ‘mec’ - Dude, guy, friend.
- ‘mdr’ - Lol (mort de rire)
- 'ouf' - Crazy (fou backwards.)
- ‘ado’ - Teen.
- ‘sec’ - Dry, whe you have no money left.
- ‘un flic’ - A cop.
- ‘un crapaud’ - Literally a toad, but people use it to mean a brat, especially a bratty child.
THE ROMANTIC STUFF:
- ‘Je t’aime’ - I love you.
- 'Je t'adore' - I adore you.
- 'Je te désire' - I want/desire you.
- 'Mon amour' - My love (unisex)
- 'Ma chere, ma chérie.' - My dear (female)
- ‘Mon cher.’ - My dear (male)
- ‘Ourson’ - Baby bear (Yes I’ve heard this one many times)
- ‘Mon petit bébé d’amour.’ - My little love baby (This one is not only embarrassing but also ridiculous but i s2g i heard it like a million times)
- 'Ma belle' - My beautiful (female)
- ‘Mon beau.’ - My beautiful (male)
- ‘un béguin' - Someone you fancy, your crush.
- ‘Petit copain’ - Boyfriend.
- 'Petite copine' - Girlfriend.
- ‘Fiancé’ - Fiance (male)
- ‘Fiancée’ - Fiance (female)
- 'Mari, époux' - Husband.
- 'Épouse' - Wife. You can also use 'Ma Femme' if it is your wife, or sa femme if it is someone else’s.
INSULTS AND CURSES:
- 'connard !' - Stupid, idiot. (male)
- 'conasse !' - Stupid, idiot. (female)
I’ve only heard those two directed towards a person, not a situation or and object.
- ‘con’ - Abreviation, this one can also be used to describe a situation.. (C’est con!)
- ‘Sabot’ - Idiot.
- ‘Salope !’ - Bitch.
- ‘Pute !’ - Whore, slut. It can be complemnted with ‘sale’ (dirty) and it ends up like this: “Sale pute!”
- 'Putain de merde!' - Fucking shit (?)
- ‘Merde !’ - Shit! (It can be complemented with ’Roulette de merde!’ (Shit roulette) one of my teachers used to say it all the time lol. you also put it at the end of something that you don’t like, par example: Internet de merde ! (Shitty internet/ Fucking internet) when your internet isn’t working.
- ‘T’es chiant!" - You’re annoying (as fuck), you’re dumb, stressing.
If you have any questions you can always go to my ask box and I’ll be glad to answer.
