LEARN FRENCH IN 2 MINUTES - French idiom: Un coup de mou

Transcript of the video

Hello everyone, I hope you are well.

Today, we will see together the French expression avoir un coup de mou. Before starting, remember to activate the subtitles to understand everything in the video. To have a "coup de mou" means to feel a little depressed, to feel a temporary fatigue. We are not born, we are not very in shape. It can be physical or psychological, but we are not in a slump.

I'll give you some context. It will help you to understand the expression better and especially to be able to use it by yourself. Here is a first context. I had a little slump after lunch. I had eaten too much. I just wanted to sleep and not work. Here's a second example. Whenever I have a slump, I watch a Jim Carrey movie and I feel much better. I feel much more cheerful and positive.

And finally, here is a last context to help you understand every time I have a little slump because I miss my family. I call them on Skype, on video, and right away, I feel much better. If you also have a little slump because winter is approaching and you feel tired. Remember to take vitamins. That's it for today. I hope you have enjoyed this expression and that you have learned some things.

If so, please remember to give me a little blue thumbs up. If you are new to the news, please subscribe. It helps me a lot and I'll see you very, very soon. Have a nice day!
