Words I have had to repeat in my ADVANCED Modern French Literature seminar🇫🇷

As some of you know, I'm in grad school doing Lit in all sorts of languages. Unfortunately, some professors make us repeat the stupidest of words.
  1. Renforcer
    It literally means "reinforce." Anyone who has taking at least two French classes knows how to pronounce this.
  2. La Cinématographie
    You know what it means. 🙄
  3. Le chagrin
    Embarrassment or disappointment. And, oh! Chagrin!
  4. La compagnie
    ...company
  5. Why...was this even a thing that happened?
