The most embarrassing mistakes to make in French

EPISODE 18. We asked listeners for their most embarrassing mistakes when trying to speak French and here are the results.

Important background:

Jouer means “to play”, jouir means “to orgasm”. 

J’ai chaud means “I’m hot”, je suis chaud means “I’m horny”. 

Un baiser is “a kiss”, baiser is “to f$$k”

The rest are pretty self explanatory. Listen to the episode by pressing play below.
