2.2 On a Tour - Les chiottes - toilets



According to the Quiz, Les Chiottes means toilets - but it seems to be quite specific term for toilets. Can anybody explain the use of this word for toilets? Is it slang? It definitely does not seem to be a word for formal situations.


Salut Dalibor, 'Les chiottes' does indeed mean 'toilets' but it is slang and is rather vulgar. It should only be used with very close friends and even then I would not use it often because it is quite disgusting. It is the equivalent to the English word 'shitter'. I hope this has cleared that up a wee bit. - Marie-Claire
