In France we make love, but we also make food (faire à manger), make some jogging (faire du jogging), and we make some boat too (faire du bateau).
I really don’t know why we French do this, the “faire” thing, and I wonder if there’s another language with this mess.
More : we all know that our “way of thinking” in the world is like built in the language. What does it imply?
A few more examples to play with :
- Faire du gringue : to flirt.
- Faire fi : to ignore.
- Faire du vélo : to bike.
- En faire une maladie : to have a fit (oh?).
Strangely enough, in France we say “prendre une douche”, like in English “to take a shower”. Italian people, though, “fare una doccia” : to make a shower”!
Thanks for reading!
