If I want to sum it up in three words, “un coup” is usually referred to something sudden, violent, quick but can be translated into various words in English such as shot, hit, blow, knock, punch, stroke, but also “coup” when used in specific contexts.
I’ve just selected a few phrases (Because there are many more…) that we quite often used in our daily life and that you’ll be able to use as well with your French friends.
Remember that they are often used to express something sudden, temporary and quick!
Amusez-vous bien! (Have fun!)
