In this week’s episode Sophie looks at “verlan”, a type of French slang which is very common in many parts of France. It involves reversing the order of syllables within words and can be confusing for learners. In the cultural section Sophie introduces us to the area around Rue Cler in Paris. For more information about Verlan, you can view an article in Wikipedia in English or French.
