Madonna has been taking language lessons so she can understand her children when they talk amongst themselves in French.
The Material Girl has enrolled her four children, Lourdes, 15, Rocco, 11, David, six, and five-year-old Mercy, in French-speaking schools.
The singer struggles to keep up when they chatter away in French, but she is studying the language so she can keep track of what they are talking about.
She tells Britain's The Sun on Sunday, "My French is not very impressive, but it's good enough. Everyone in my house speaks perfect French but me.
"I'm getting better at understanding when they're not talking about their homework. I'm now picking up things and saying, 'What did you say?' I know the necessary swear words, so they have to be careful."
