“Je parle français comme une vache espagnole.”

Written by Anthony Lucas, French teacher since 2007

parler français comme une vache espagnole

Imagine for a moment a cow, of Spanish nationality and mother tongue, trying to speak French… The image is quite amusing and perhaps that’s why this expression has become popular!

You may have already understood what “speaking French like a Spanish cow” means: speaking French badly, speaking French in an incomprehensible way. Indeed, I have never yet met a Spanish cow who spoke French well enough to be understood 🙂
