Have you already tried it? Please don’t!!

When a French person uses the expression “Les doigts dans le nez”, it means that he would be able to do something even if he had his fingers stuck in his nose, that it is so easy that he doesn’t even need using his fingers to do it. Poetic, isn’t it?

Yes, French is definitely the language of love
