To continue with our exam-related theme for Word of the Week, here we have ‘chuchoter’ (which, as a bonus, is possibly one of the nicest words to say and hear in French).
How to pronounce it:
What it means in English:
‘Chuchoter’ comes from ‘chucheter’, which is onomatopoeic.
How to use it in a sentence:
‘Dans la bibliothèque, il faut chuchoter ou parler tout bas pour ne pas déranger les autres.’
‘In the library, you must whisper or speak really quietly so you don’t disturb other people.’
Murmurer = To talk very softly.
Parler à voix basse = To speak quietly.
Parler (tout) bas = To speak very quietly.
