LEARN FRENCH IN 2 MINUTES - French idiom: Boire des coups

Transcript of the video

Hello everyone, I hope you are well.

Today, I'm back with a new video on a French expression.

The expression we're going to see today is quite familiar. It's drinking.


Drinking shots is simply an expression that means to have a drink or drinks.

It's when you're going to spend a convivial moment, a nice moment with friends or family for example, and you're going to drink glasses, so you can have a coke, a beer, wine.

The idea is just to spend a moment together, either in a bar, often it is in a bar that we go to drink. But it can be at your place, in apartments and at a friend's place, at his lover's place. The idea is to have a good time, a moment of sharing. I'll give you two little contextualizations so that you can understand the expression and use it. For example, if I ask a colleague what he did this weekend.

He can tell me I didn't do much. I've just been out drinking with friends. Another example would be if someone writes me a little message asking if I am available. I can answer no. I'm making a YouTube video right now, but if you want, we can meet up afterwards for drinks at the little bar down the street from my place. That's it for today. That was pretty short.

I hope you enjoyed this video, that you learned a new expression. If you liked it, don't forget to put a like on the video. And if you are new to the news? Subscribe to the channel to not miss any video. I say to you very, very quickly, it is also a beautiful day.
