What is “verlan” in French? Do the French really use it?

So, I have been in France forever and I've noticed something... the French really love to use slang! And one of their favorite forms of slang is called "verlan". But, what is verlan? Do the French really use it? In this blog post, I'll answer all those questions and more! :)

Do you know what “verlan” is? It’s a type of French that uses the inverse order of the words. For example, “parler” (to speak) becomes “lerpa”. It can be confusing for students at first, because it feels like you’re speaking an entirely different language! In reality, however, verlan is simply a way of speaking Standard French in a more informal way. And despite what some people may think, the French really do use verlan! So if you want to fit in with the locals while you’re in France, be sure to learn a few phrases in verlan!
