PostSubject: Français ~ French   Wed May 28, 2008 4:43 pm

Bonjour! Today I'm going to write a [brief] introduction to one of the romance languages, French. Romance languages are languages that descended from Latin, and include French, Spanish, Portugese, and Italian. Between 115 and 500 million people worldwide speak it, and it's the official language in thirty countries. Just for the fun of it, here are some terms or objects you may have heard of that incorporate the word "French" in them:
-French fries
-French kiss
-French horn
-French toast
-French dressing
-Pardon my French


Getting back on topic now! The French alphabet consists of 26 letters, just like the English alphabet. To recite the French alphabet, pronounce the letters as follows:
a ~ aah
b ~ beh
c ~ ceh
d ~ deh
e ~ eh
f ~ eff
g ~ jeh
h ~ ash
i ~ eee
j ~ gi
k ~ ka
l ~ el
m ~ em
n ~ en
o ~ ooh
p ~ peh
q ~ qu
r ~ air
s ~ es
t ~ teh
u ~ uuh
v ~ veh
w ~ dooble veh
x ~ ix
y ~ ee grek
z ~ zed
If I haven't done a good job at writing how they sound, or if you just want to check your prononciation, a great site can be found here.

Let's cover some basic phrases in French now.

To say "Hello!":
Bonjour! Bonjour is the most basic French greeting, and can be literally translated as "Good day!" Pronounciation is as follows: Bohn'JOOer

To say "Goodbye!":
Au revoir! Au revoir is the most basic way to say goodbye in French, and can be literally translated as "At see again." It means "see you again/in the future", and is pronounced as follows: Ohh RUH'vwhar

To say "I love you":
Je t'aime. Je t'aime can be literally translated as "I you love" and is pronounced as follows: Juh t'emm

To say "My name is _____":
Je m'appelle _____. Je m'appelle can be literally translated as "I me called" and means "I am called" or :My name is". It is pronounced as follows: Juh m'ahPELL

Well, that's all for today's lesson! I'll post again in a couple of days and cover some more of the basics, along with the use of those darn accents.

En parlant de français, je viens de lire "The Kings Pawnshop".
Dedans il y a du bon "franponais" comme on l'aime :

"tu es imbecile" (pour démarrer tranquilement)
"Tu tén vas en 5 seconde ou je te tuerai!" (le coup de grâce)

Quoiqu'il en soit c'est quand même assez bon comme niveau (surtout que le reste est juste).
Le français étant ce qu'il est (une langue assez difficile), j'applaudis l'effort. happy

AAAh le francais, c'est pas tjrs facile de s'exprimer dans cette langue surtout cote grammaire et orthographe lol! La pire chose pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas la langue c'est la prononciation lol.
C'est tellement agreable d'ecrire en francais lol, j'ai pas besoin de reflechir a ma syntaxe , ca sort tout seul (ma langue maternelle ^^ hehe) !

If anyone needs help in French feel free to ask ^^ It is certainly not the most simple language in the world but it's a beautiful language ^^

I'm going to correct you ^^

For the second point you might to say : Je n'en sais rien or J'en sais rien
The second sentence it's a contraction of the first ^^ And more use of the first sentence

Then to complete lynzajw

To say "How old are you ?" :

Quel âge avez-vous ? in French,it's very different, litteraly it leans : What age do you have ? and it's in format polished

To say "How are you ?" :

Ca va ? or Comment allez-vous ? : the two of them it's right but the first it's close and the second it's for polished or when you speak with teacher or else ^^

Right,I don't know what to say more ^^ It's very the basic :) If someone have question,just ask me ;) don't be afraid I don't bit lol!

moi aussi je suis française et je me débrouille assez bien en anglais pour lire des scan manga en anglais !

Que je suis heureuse d'avoir été bonne élève! sans ça il y aurai des tonnes de manga que j'aurai pas connu! En plus ça me fait plaisir que quelque scan que je lisais sont edités en version française
