Useful Boating Related French Words & Phrases

It soon became apparent that our school french was possibly not going to be quite enough to get us through our trip and that a few 'new words' might be in order. I have listed the ones that we have found useful and, just in case there is anyone who has even less of a repertoire than us, a few others too.

I'll continue to add to this list as I think of 'useful' words whilst continuing with this blog.

Barge .... Peniche
Boat .... Bateau

Bread .... Pain
Bridge .... Pont

Butter .... Beurre

Lock .... Ecluse

Milk - fresh .... Lait frais (red cap is full fat & blue cap is semi-skimmed)
Milk - longlife .... Lait de longlife
Please .... S'il vous plait

River .... Fleuve

Thank you ....
Speed .... Vitesse

Well done ....
Bien Cuit (for steak) - this will still be cooked what is considered medium by most!
