“Il pleut des cordes !”

Written by Anthony Lucas, French teacher since 2007

Il pleut des cordes

This expression can be very useful to say in French that it is raining very hard. The English equivalent is “It’s raining cats and dogs!”.

Literally, “Il pleut des cordes !” means “It’s raining ropes!”
