One French Word A Day – Spring 2022

Day 41 – puis

The Learning French 100 Day Project – Friday, April 29, 2022

I’ve been studying French on and off for about a year. My interest in the language began when I started reading classical French novels by Balzac, Dumas, Flaubert, Stendhal, and others. I’m also a budding armchair historian of the French Revolution. In 2018/19, I spent Christmas and the New Year in Paris. Bonne Année !!

French is a beautiful, musical, romantic language, … and I’m keen on learning it.

For the next 100 days (all of Spring 2022), I’ll focus daily on a French word and use it in sentences. The results of my efforts will surely be hilarious, peppered with errors, and unequivocally bad French … but you gotta have the freedom to fail.

So, without further ado … let’s learn French! Allons-y!


puis (adverb) : then; next


Mon chat jouera un moment puis se reposera. (My cat will play for awhile, then rest.)
Je veux pouvoir étudier puis travailler.
(I want to be able to study and then work.)
Paul et Claire termineront manger puis sortiront.
(Paul and Claire will finish eating and then go out.)
