My friend Linda (Linda I hope you are reading this!) recently made a list of fun slang French words and expressions and I loved it so much I decided to share it with you!

If you are one of these people who think French is a little difficult and complicated, here’s something fun you should like… you know what we do with French words? We cut them in half! We do it a lot! Why? I don’t know, could be our guillotine heritage?!?

Anyways, here’s a list of now short French words for you. Enjoy!

I’m giving you the full expression or word first and then, its guillotined version! Ha!

Comme d’habitude = Comme d’hab (as usual)

D’accord = D’ac (ok)

Bon appétit = Bon app (enjoy your food)

Bonne après-midi = Bonne aprèm (have a good afternoon)

Un petit déjeuner = Un p’tit dej (a breakfast)

Un anniversaire = Un anniv (a birthday)

And then we also have all these words ending in O…

Un restaurant = Un resto (a restaurant)

Un apéritif = Un apéro (a pre meal drink)

Un intellectuel = Un intello (an intellectual)

Un propriétaire = Un proprio (an owner)

Un vétérinaire = Un véto (a vet)

Un gynécologue = Un gynéco (a gynecologist)

And many more!

See how we make it easy, nice, and short for you!
