    Just wondering who's francophone out here. I'm sure I'm not the only one :)

    Il me semble que beaucoup d'Américains (généralement) n'aiment pas les Français mais la langue (pour moi) est musique.

    ça c'est dommage à mon avis. Il y a beaucoup de gens en Europe qui parlent Anglais presque parfaitment maintenant.

    Véridiquement je ne suis pas un francophone. Je suis un francophile.

    Ma première langue (langue native) est la langue Angalis.

    **nniner - mais vous parlez l'Anglais sans erreur. Bien fait.

    Je parle de Francais.

    J'ai habité près de Paris quand j'etait petit.

    Et maintenant, j'ai une maison pour les vacances! J'ai de chance ;)

    Funny, I could understand every post here. I am not French in anyway but I started learning probably 3 years ago. I dare not write in French since my writing is autrocious, as Castello found out in another thread.

    où es-tu né dongalong?

    J'aime bien l'expression "Rosbif" :biggrin1: ... est-ce que c'est comparable quand on dis "grenouille" en Anglais?

    That's because none of us are writing in native French. I suspect we are all using schoolboy stuff!

    As I have a house there, and so need to deal with correspondance in French all the time (from junk mail right up to tax) - I can tell you, they use a different langauge over there!


    As for the rosbif comments. We are called that because of the pink colour we go in the sun :frown1:

    I know that's not the case in two posters here o0fred. dongalong knows his stuff ... and much of what's here is either experienced "schoolboy" as you call it or Québecois French which is a very different animal.

    Perhaps you're referring to legalese? And then of course there's the way the language has dropped into slang over the last twenty-five years too.


    Frog? Roastbeef?

    Six of one half dozen of the other.

    Connaissez-vous l'expression "les Anglais sont arrivées"? :eek:

    Oui mais je ne parle pas de français bien à moins que je ne sois dans une nation parlante française pour la durée du temps.

    Les Français sont bien incroiable, non? Cet expression est très ancien. :tongue:

    N'importe. Néanmoins j'ai bien compris ce que tu as écrit.

    Tu as raison ny:

    Quand on reste en France depuis quelques temps il devait plus
    facile presque immédiatement.

    Oui, rosbif est l'insult/expression donne aux Anglais pour decriver le couleur de leur peau apres quelques heures au soleil (rose comme la cuisson preferee des Francais du rosbif)

    Les Anglais appellent les Francais "Frogs" depuis longtemps voici quelques possibilites des origines de cet apppelation

    Alors, merci mille fois pour l'information de votre naissance dongalong.

    Peut-etre tu es né près de Oxford ou l'environs?
