LEARN FRENCH IN 2 MINUTES - French idiom: Une fois toutes les lunes

Transcript of the video

Hi everyone, hope you are doing well.

Welcome to this new video in this small format where we see an expression in a few minutes.

Today, we will see together an expression which is :

once every moon.

Before explaining, remember to activate the French subtitles to understand the whole video. Are you ready? Here we go.

So, once every moon is an expression that simply means very rarely.

This expression is used to talk about something that happens very infrequently, almost never.

I'll give you some context to help you understand the expression better and, more importantly, to help you use it yourself.

Here is a first context.

I'm almost a vegetarian, I only eat meat once every moon. That means that most of the time I don't eat meat and really, three times a year I'll go off the grid, I'll eat a little bit of meat.

Here is a second contextualization, for sure, you will understand better.

I clean the house by myself. My husband only does the dishes once every moon.

And that's it for today. I hope you enjoyed this expression.

Feel free to tell me in comments or suggest expressions you would like me to explain or put in context.

If you liked this video, remember to put a little blue thumb and especially, subscribe to the channel.

See you soon on HelloFrench.
