Speak French more naturally
Do you sometimes find that you know all the words in a sentence but still cannot figure out the meaning? Congratulations, you've probably met an expression or idiom. For example, when you say, "It's raining cats and dogs", you don't mean that cats and dogs are falling out of the sky, of course, but rather that it's raining heavily. The French also love to use expressions to convey more specific messages. By learning some of them, you will move from an academic form of French to a more natural one.
Idioms provide interesting insights into the languages and thought processes of their speakers. By understanding French expressions and their literal translations, it will help you to gain a sense of the French culture and mind-set.
