With the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity starting in less than a week, the Adweek team figured now would be a good time for a little French refresher. We cover only the most essential of phrases in this video, including “Can I have a chocolate croissant?” and “What time does the Gutter Bar close?”

Watch as I break out my rusty French accent to share some tips on how to speak the language of love.

(P.S. All phrases should be said with an air of arrogance and thinly veiled contempt.)
