Bonsoir, je parle francais, mais pas couramment. J'adore cette langue, c'est la langue de mon ame. :)

 

Anyone who says French is "the language of love" knows nothing about French language and culture. French is the language of existential despair.

Allo! Je parle français, c’est ma première langue. If you want to, you can pm me and we could speak in french. About what? I don’t know but I’m sure we could find something.

lol what do you mean lol XD I'm bilingual lol and I speak French lol XD I'm even French Canadian lol XD no offense but I hope you aren't against the French language lol XD just wondering.

 

Also, it takes practice to speak and even write the language. At one of my schools when I took a French class in my sophomore yr so I could continue speaking French so I wouldn't lose it, I heard a couple of students say that they hated French so I asked them how come and talked to a few of the students and told them it takes practice to write and speak French and it takes time to learn the language. They agreed a little and told me that that makes sense and I felt like I helped them understand the French language a little more. :D

I'm clearly better at reading than speaking as I can decipher many of the French written messages in this thread. Huzzah for me!

French canadian! Me too!

 

Even though french is my first language, I think that it’s a very hard language to learn because of all the grammar rules. Reading helps a lot for writing. For speaking, the best is really to practice.

Je parle un peut le Francais, mais pas tres bien. Il'ya environs de 30 ans que j'abitais dans un pais ou on parle le Francais et j'ai oublie presque tout. Alors, je comprend tres bien ce que tu dis. Mais je voudrais bien refraichir mes competences linguistiques en Francais. Je suis desole de ne pas utiliser des accents mais c'est trop difficile sur mon clavier Brittanique.

 

That's the best I can do and that took me a while! :lol:

You know you're from Quebec, when you know what "Tiggidou" means.

 

Or aren't lost when I say Watatatow, cave (in reference to intelligence level), or snoro.

 

I'm Haitian, and my parents learned France French. Montreal however, is my second home as I know tons of people there so it's sort of influenced my French. I was totally lost on Quebec slang as a kid, but quickly picked it up.

 

I felt I was starting to lose my French while traveling, so made a point to start reading French newspapers and literature, overall. I also tried to make sure to watch French movies, as well to try to keep the French sharp.

 

I'm lucky, as my sisters kids also speak French, so I get to practice it with them. As does my best friend's 4 year old daughter. She is trying to learn it, so I get to speak it with her, when I hang out with him.

 

Donc (heureusement) le Francais, est encore la langue avec laquelle je m'exprime avec le plus de facilite.

Je ne crois pas que le patios qu'on parle en Canada est juste un cas d'une difference de quelque mots, mai je crois que c'est presque une langue tout a fait different qui resemble le Francais qu'on parle en France en grammaire, c'est tout. Alors, je ne suis pas sure car je connais personne du Canada, mais on m'a dit qu'on peut pas le comprendre si on a appris le Francais en France ou la Suisse. C'est tout a fait presque une langue differente?

I started learning French in high school, so I have bare minimum basics down. Spanish would be more beneficial to me based on where I live, but I'd rather learn French. It's also fun to try and figure out what is being said in French with the little I know.

Si tu te diriges vers le forum francophone de l’AVEN, tu trouveras beaucoup d’asexuels français et asexuelles françaises.

Je suis un mec français mais je parle anglais couramment grâce à une parente qui est originaire d’Angleterre. Il faut que je parle anglais tous les jours pour mon boulot aussi. J’y suis tellement habitué que parfois je m’exprime mieux en anglais qu’en français.

Bravo pour avoir écrit en français. Cela dit, le manque d’accents n’est pas bon, je suis sûr que les profs de français piqueraient une crise ! :lol:

 

Cependant, ce n’est pas de ta faute puisque ce n’est pas que les claviers britanniques qui pose ce problème. J’ignore la situation au Québec, mais bizarrement, il est très difficile d’écrire en français correctement avec les claviers commercialisés en France. Il y a des gens qui croient que les jours du clavier AZERTY, utilisé en France et Belgique depuis plus d’un siècle, sont comptés. Moi j’ai découvert une petite astuce. Un clavier portugais te permet de taper plus facilement qu’un clavier français tous les caractères et tous les accents utilisés dans la langue française.

Les claviers Suisse sont assez faciles a utiliser si tu a l'habitude de taper sur un clavier querty. Les clavier q'on peut acheter en Suisse sont quertz, pas querty, avec tout les accents pour ecrir en allemand (Suisse), francais et italien. ^_^ J'espere que quertz est plus facile que azerty.

Peut etre je ferais mieux d'acheter un clavier la prochaine fois que je suis la (l'ete prochain!! :D). Je ne veux pas mettre les professeurs de francais en colere! :lol:

Je suis allé au Québec il y a quelques années. Je ne dirais pas que le français du Canada soit un patois. Bien sûr, il y a des mots différents et des accents très différents, mais c’est la même langue ; un Français de Marseille et un Canadien francophone de Montréal n'ont absolument aucun problème pour se comprendre. Il existe toujours des vrais patois en France que je ne comprends pas du tout.

lol I'm from Montreal XD I once visited Quebec but that's pretty much it. However, I'd like to see what that whole entire Snow Festival is like in Quebec lol XD

It takes practice to learn French. A bunch of students in my French classes before I went to a boarding school, have said similar things and I've told them it takes practice to learn French you just have to keep practicing and they've told me that it makes sense. :D
