Did you know that there are words that don't exist in the English language?

The few I came across would sure be handy to use in everyday conversations!

  1. L'esprit de escalier (French): The feeling you get after leaving a conversation, when you think of all the things you should have said (it means "the spirit of the staircase")
  2. Forelsket (Norwegian): The euphoria you experience when you are first falling in love
  3. Pena ajena (Mexican Spanish): The embarrassment you feel watching someone else's humiliation
  4. Gheegle (Filipino): The urge to pinch/squeeze something unbearable cute

So interesting!
