Following the recent debate regarding French universities teaching courses in English, here’s a list of our favourite ‘Englishisms’: English terms used colloquially in France, often in weird and wonderful ways!

 

Le fashion
Les people – celebrities
Relooker – to give someone a makeover
Footing –  jogging
Luncher – to have lunch
Le snack bar
Le spam – junk email rather than canned meat!
Hypercool!
Le know-how
Le must – a must-do
