On Sunday we are going to change our clocks! Loosing an hour of sleep is not great but the longer days are so worth it, non?

Today I want to give you 6 expressions with the word time, in French “temps”. Vous êtes prêts?

1- J’ai terminé mon livre en un rien de temps – I finished my book in no time. Rien means nothing.

2- Tu travailles à mi-temps ou à temps plein? – Do you work part time or full time?

3- Elle commence à trouver le temps long – She’s beginning to find that time passes slowly

4- Il a écrit l’email en deux temps trois mouvements – He wrote the email in a blink

5- Prends ton parapluie, il fait un temps de chien – Take your umbrella, the weather is really bad

6- Ne t’en fais pas, j’ai tout mon temps – Don’t worry, I have plenty of time

By the way, in France the clocks will wait for another 2 weeks to change. In Europe, it’s always on the last Sunday of March.

In France this new system was adopted in 1975 to reduce the consumption of energy during the oil crisis.

If you like this video stay tuned because next week I’m going to give you some super fun, short, and easy to remember slang based expressions. And no it’s not rude 🙂
