What is the meaning of 400 coups?
Dictation exercise C1
"Faire les 400 coups" means "to get up to some shenanigans / to go a bit wild". It is used to describe someone (usually kids / teenagers) who are going to get up to some mischievous silly things (as kids do). ;-)
A couple of good dictionaries for finding French expressions are : Wordreference or Collins.
I hope this is helpful. ;-)
Bonne journée !
