des ragots – gossip – Mot du Jour

The other day, my long-time student and friend Douglas was asking about des ragots: it means ‘gossip’. Ragot is sometimes singular un ragot, sometimes plural les ragots, or des ragots. There is another way to say des ragots, and that is des commérages. Des ragots is more spoken French than des commérages.

  • « On dit que nos voisins vont divorcer, mais faut pas écouter les ragots. »
    • “They say our neighbors are going to get a  divorce but don’t give in to gossip.”
