French Gestures

Alice sent me this link this evening. It's a French teacher's "Top 10 French Gestures". I found it rather interesting. I remember being in Spanish class back in 8th grade and being really amused by the section on the different gestures used by various kinds of Spanish-speaking people around the world. These French ones are also pretty amusing, especially because she includes one for every situation, especially those occurring during a crazy night on the town.

Someone's had a bit too much Bordeaux? Bust out the "Verre danz le nez" and let the hilarity ensue. Sonned someone with your razor sharp wit? Give them the "J'ai du nez" to show everyone who's willing to drop some crazy knowledge on that ass. Met a special someone and want to take things to the next level? Hit her (or him) with the "Barrons-nous" to initiate some after hours activities. Get rejected in front of everyone? Just bust out the "Bof" (a.k.a. the "Gallic Shrug"). I'm not sure it would actually apply, but it would still be funny.

The rest of them would be useful and amusing to know as well. Study up
