Spanish is a prettier sounding language than French.

French is supposed to be the language of love and the French are so snobby about their beautiful language. But half of the sounds their language makes comes from the back of the throat and is reminiscent of someone coughing up phlegm. Where the Spanish language is crisp and rolling and every sound comes from the tip of the tongue. Spanish is way more seductive and smooth and romantic than the French claim to be.

Comedy is one of the hardest things to gain when learning a new language.. I only had one joke I made that worked in French

And when I say worked, I mean half the people I tell it to gave a little laugh under their breath.. My dad joke is "comment appelle-t-on une pomme qui tombe d'un arbre? Une pomme de terre"

I think a lot of French dont think of the terre as any significance in the word..."Pomme de terre" its probably thought of as just one word that creates an image..so that's why some people didn't understand, or its just so stupid its not funny to half the people. Any natives care to tell me what that think of it?

Any particular reason why French has less tenses compared to other Romance languages like Spanish?

Hey everyone,

So I've been studying French for many years now, and I've recently started to learn Spanish as well. Of course, already knowing one Romance language has made my learning of Spanish much easier than if I was starting from scratch, and along the way I've noticed some interesting quirks and differences between the two languages. One particular difference I've noticed is in the tenses: French appears to have less tenses than Spanish, or, at least, French has certain dropped tenses. Two that I've noticed are in the present continuous tense and in the perfect (?).

  • In English, for instance, we can say "I speak" and "I am speaking," but in French, both come out to one form: "je parle." Practically speaking, there is no continuous tense besides the special Γͺtre en train de construction, which is rare.
  • Spanish, however, keeps the distinction: I speak = hablo, while I am speaking = estoy hablando.

In the past, it's a similar story.

  • In English, we can say "I spoke" or "I have spoken," but in French, both translate to one form, "j'ai parlΓ©." The equivalent tense to "I spoke," the passΓ© simple, has essentially dropped out of common discourse (and I think it can also be used for both forms anyway).
  • But in Spanish, I spoke = hablΓ©, while I have spoken = he hablado (well they can also take the imperfect form, but that's a whole other discussion).

So, is there any particular reason for these dropped tenses in French? Why did the language lose these distinctions while Spanish kept them?

Intentional ungrammaticality is rather common in French comedy. What about other languages?

Hello!

As the title says, a common way to make something sound funnier in my native French is to deliberately use bad grammar, often to imply that a character is a "know-nothing know-it-all".

Some common forms of humorous ungrammaticality are:

  • Misconjugated verbs, especially when using irregular ones or uncommon forms such as the simple past or the imperfect subjunctive.
  • Incorrect preposition+definite article combinations "de le" and "de les" instead of the proper contractions du and des.
  • Mispluralized nouns, especially the ones ending in -al due to their unpredictability (some have the plural ending -als, others have -aux), for instance chacal (jackal) is often humorously pluralized as "chacaux" instead of chacals.
  • Misdivided words due to liaison, for instance saying "nenfant" instead of enfant (child) because un enfant (a child) is pronounced /Ι›Μƒnβ€ΏΙ‘ΜƒfΙ‘Μƒ/.
  • Exaggeratedly long interrogative constructions, you might have heard of the qu'est-ce que c'est que Γ§a? (what's this?, literally "what's this that it's that this?"), which is correct French, but humorous ungrammatical ones are also common.
  • Metatheses, spelling pronunciations, pleonasms and mixed-up expressions.

Some examples:

  • The comedy film La CitΓ© de la peur (The City of Fear), which was made by a team of comedians known as Les Nuls (The Dummies), is called "Le film de Les Nuls" instead of Le film des Nuls (The Dummies' movie) on its posters and in its opening credits.
  • In another comedy film, La Classe amΓ©ricaine (The American Class), the characters consistently mispronounce film as "flim" and quiche lorraine as "ouiche lorraine", even the narrator. The narrator also reads aloud some country names on an English map and pronounces "south" as /sut/.
  • Les Guignols de l'Info (The News Puppets), a satirical puppet show, often caricatures celebrities this way. For instance, when the cyclist Richard Virenque was accused of doping, his puppet in the show claimed to have been doped "Γ  l'insu de son plein grΓ©" ("unbeknownst to his willingness").
  • The inhabitants of Groland (a fictional France-like country featured in various comedy shows on the channel Canal+) are portrayed as so dumb that even their country's motto contains a misconjugated verb, it's "Groland, je mourrirai pour toi" instead of Groland, je mourrai pour toi (Groland, I shall die for thee). You can buy T-shirts saying "viendez au Groland" instead of venez au Groland (come to Groland).

Interactive Map with more than 900 screenshot and 145 videos in English and French language.

Hi everyone !!!

Since one month and half i've started my project, my map look nice now !

UPDATE !!! : As requested, the main language is English now. Also i will add Butterfly, Crystal Core and Luminescent Spine when i'll find enought spot.

You can visit my map here : https://genshin.tmkfrench.fr

Chest with a Video in Liyue Map

Chest with a screenshot in Mondstadt

Now my map has over 1800 markers. However, i still add new markers everyday to complete it.

I've added many markers to easy do the 100 products of Mondstadt and Liyue, so each region can by done in less than 10 minutes. I've added the differents materials for food too and all the Viewpoints.

Unlike another French site which copied the source code and the markers database of the Chinese map and just making a retouch in the menu graphics, i've completely coded mine and did all the exploration I could to take the most accurate screenshots and videos to help you in your search for the chests. All screenshots can be viewed in full screen simply by clicking on it (better than an simply 300x300 px image)

It takes me many time to do this work. I'm alone to do the job.

All the checked markers and menu choices are stored localy in your browser.

I've implanted an export/import option to save your progression and use it on an another device.

You can choose between English or French language.

I hope you will like my work. If you have any questions or advices don't hesitate to contact me.

I you like my map, share it adress.

Sorry for my english if i've made some errors :)

French is not a nice and sexy language at all, it sucks

I'm not a language expert, I can only fluently speak two(english and spanish), and express myself decently in other two(portuguese and italian) but I've listened a lot of French, and it sucks, since you are a kid you're told French is the language of love, sexy and smooth, and It's more like the speakers have a sore throat or a problem in their tonsils

As I said, I'm no expert, more like a dude with dumb opinions, but to me French is not appealing at all, just pure marketing, In my opinion languages like Russian or Czech are far better sounding, even Japanese, Italian, Spanish, or English!

The only languages that to me sound less appealing to the ear are norse languages like Danish, Dutch, and asian languages like Vietnamese or Thai just to set a bunch of examples

I dont plan to start a discussion about which country is better or whatever I'm just talking about how languages sound

I tend to absorb people like a sponge. It is a strange world, and I try to learn as much as possible about what makes everyone wake up in the morning. I learn languages for travel and understand new cultures, and I am overwhelmed by everything in my life now. I feel like this pandemic has cut my social interactions to a level I never anticipated. Secluded from the mainstream, I am looking for a language buddy to keep my English at a conversational level. I have read everything from LOTR to Harry Potter. We could talk for a few minutes every day about anything interesting for the love of languages.

Not much more needs to be said, although the French could say a lot less. I don’t get people can find this language attractive. Whenever I hear someone speaking French it sounds like a bullfrog trying to talk. It seems like French from Paris is the most obnoxious of all the language. Ironically - French sounds more attractive when I hear people from Belgium speak it. French is not an attractive language.

The FSI ranks language difficulty in five categories. Does this exist in French?

If you didn't already know, the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) took every language in the world and ranked them by difficulty to learn for native English speakers. The languages are sorted into five categories, with Category I being the easiest and Category V being the hardest:

  • Category I - languages that are closely related to English and therefore very easy to learn: every single Scandinavian language, every single Romance language, and every single Germanic language minus German
  • Category II - languages that are closely related to English but have confusing grammar rules: German only
  • Category III - languages that are not closely related to English but are easy to learn due to their simple grammar: Malay and Indonesian Bahasa (which are actually mutually intelligible) and Swahili
  • Category IV - languages that are not closely related to English: everything not in Categories I-III, V
  • Category V - languages that are not closely related to English and have difficult writing systems: Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean

So there you have it. Now does an equivalent for this exist for French? Does the French language have a sorted list of languages ranked by difficulty to learn if your native language is French? Because English and French are so closely related, I have a hard time believing the equivalent list for French would be much different from the one in English.

It's obvious that the Romance languages would be at the top of the list for French. I've heard that the closest living major language to French today is Italian. I can totally believe that, in which case Spanish and Portuguese can't be too far off. Romanian might be a little more distant, and that rounds off the Romance languages. I know for a fact that the Scandinavian and Germanic languages aren't too far off from French, so that would round off the Category I and II languages.

For the same reasons that English speakers find Malay/Indonesian and Swahili easy to learn, I'd imagine that French speakers must find their grammar to be fairly simple as well. And Arabic/Chinese/Japanese/Korean are just as foreign to French speakers as they are to English speakers. Everything else in Category IV finishes off the list.

But there must be other noticeable differences for French, right? For example, I would imagine that Haitian Creole would be much easier for French speakers than it is for English speakers, even though none of these languages are mutually intelligible. Similarly, I would bet tha

[OFFER] New skill for a new year? I will get you speaking French, Russian, Spanish, or English or your money back (Oxford Language Nerd)

I'm a native English speaker, I've learnt 6 foreign languages in my life, 3 fluently, and I'm currently at Oxford doing languages. I have 95+% at Int. Baccalaureate in French and Spanish, and I'm currently reading War and Peace, Crime and Punishment etc. in the original Russian. Point being that I know what you really need to do to really learn a language, as effectively and quickly as possible, and I can use that knowledge to help you.

I have probably spent 100s of hours working through every language product on the market, and as far as I can tell, they're all designed for maximum profit, and not for optimum learning. I've taught 1000+ hours over the past five years to people who want to learn languages, and I have a good idea of how best to help learners of wildly different ability. I can get you to learn at a speed that you won't be able to match without paying someone a fair bit more money than I ask for.

Let's agree on a target for how well you want to speak in how much time, and if I think it can be done, I'll offer you the option of a full refund for failing to make that target. I'm looking to take on a few more language learners. I want a slightly different profile to the rich kids I usually teach, so I'm offering lessons for 20 pounds an hour or equivalent (27ish dollars).

I love helping people reach their language goals and I will be available to talk or support you whenever you want outside of lesson time with tips and tricks! I'm happy to correct practice work for free too within reason. If you have specific work or study related goals, message me and let's talk about them.
