TRANSLATION
- Good evening Marie, good evening Victor and good evening to you too, Jean et Suzanne.
- Happy New Year Mom, happy New Year, Dad.
- Happy New Year to the four of you. Suzanne, go and drop the coats on the tiny room. Go and sit in down in the living-room. I’ll go and fetch a little snack.
- She’s going to stuff us with food.
- Here’s some olives, some chips et some petits fours for the one who ain’t gluten intolerant.
- Suzanne, if you eat like a pig I’ll take the bowl of chips away.
Petit, petite : short, small, little, tiny.
Gaver : Stuff with food, to force-feed.
Olive fém.) : olive.
Petit four (masc.) : petit four.
Bol (masc.) : bowl.
Se goinfrer : to eat like a pig.
In French, we easily use sentences such as va poser, venez vous asseoir or attends voir. An infinitive form is right after a conjugate verb. No words separe these two verbs whereas in English you use and between to two of them.
Translate this short dialogue :


Bonne année à tous les cinq. Vous avez eu des cadeaux à Noël ? Venez vous asseoir, je vais chercher un bol de chips.
