Sécher les cours

Le mot du jour : “sécher les cours”

“Sécher les cours” translates by ” to dry the lessons” and means to skip school without a good reason. It is (relatively) modern slang and is still in use amongst young people today, although I am sure they created plenty of new words to express their desire to not be in school!

I was reminded of that expression this morning, looking out of the window at the misty, cold day and thinking : “Je sècherais bien les cours, aujourd’hui” (“I would like to skip school today!”)

Stay warm, everybody 🙂
