How much GCSE French do you actually remember?
Oh sacre bleu, how we miss the Tricolore Total textbooks
As the English football team heads to France for Euro 2016, there will be Brits littering Paris, a few beers down, thinking they can speak the lingo.
We’ve all been there: a little bit of Dutch courage and suddenly, we think our GCSE French knowledge means we’re bona fide Gallic polyglots who can mingle with Pierre and Juliette.
The reality is, your drunken stab at speaking le français (“voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?”) means you just look like an embarrassing Brit abroad or a failed extra from ‘Allo ‘Allo.
Or are we wrong? Do you actually know your past participles from your present tense? Aimez-vous le français?
Bof, c’est facile.
