Let’s start talking about work in French
A job is called a métier or a profession in French. What is your métier?
Are you un médecin ? Une pilote d’avion ? Un cuisinier ? Or are you un infirmier ou une pharmacienne ? Do you know what all these profession names mean?
When are you working in French?
Tous les matins, every morning, I start à huit heures trente. (at eight thirty)
I have a lunch break, une pause-déjeuner, à midi. I like chatting with mes collègues and then I go back to work.
I finish work à dix-sept heures., which is the French way of saying 5 pm, I work these hours Monday to Friday, du lundi au vendredi.
If you are un professeur or un cuisinier, a teacher or a cook, you might also be working le soir, in the evening.
If you are une infirmière, a nurse, you might also be working la nuit, during the night.
Bonne journée au travail !
