Heyo,

Cette thread c'est juste pour le savoir s'il y en a des francophones au site de l'ADISC. Je sais qu'il y a plein des Canadien/nes maintenant mais est-ce qu'il y a des francos d'Europe ici aussi?

J'y viens de Quebec, ca s'explique mon facon d'ecrire pour le plupart.. lol.

Je ne parle pas francais (I know about the accents but it's just a pain in the ass to put those in)

AH! Salut! Je suis Franco-Ontarionian. Mon Français n'est pas très bon. Ah well. J'apprends toujours. I want to be fluent. I think that would be cool. Juste deux more semesters of French and I get a certificate from my school.

C'est facile pour écrire les accents si on utilise Xorg/KDE :p.

Alors, je parle un peu de français parce que c'était obligatoire à mon univeristé.

Not French necessarily, just one of French, German, Spanish, or Russian (for science majors).

Are you taking a language in school? I don't mind not knowing French because I'm learning German :D

Deutsch ist ja auch viel besser als Französisch! :tongueout:

And my French sucks - my teacher mostly spent his time telling stories about his journeys through France, so my class didn't learn a whole lot.

My French teacher had no control over the class what so ever, I recall one time this guy in my class got levitated ("light as a feather, stiff as a board") just in the middle of the class. The teacher couldn't stop it, he just waited until it was over. I leant practically no French that year!

Although maybe I'm not as bad as I think, because I get the gist of what people have posted here.

Haha... around here if you learned your french through school, that's the only place you'll ever be able to use it. The dialect taught is a Parisian textbook one while the one I use on an everyday basis is the Quebecois "Joile" one.

The better you are at speaking it, the more likely people will think you're a chain-smoker :D

An Ontariorian in our midst! My advice on becoming more fluent is to immerse yourself in the culture and practice everyday. I learnt most of my french at a summer camp; the english to french ratio was around 1:45 lol

:tongueout: Yeah, I was lucky - learned German as my first language and "only" had to deal with English in school, which is a lot easier in terms of grammar.
I'm wondering though if there are people with the last name "Ugly". I guess at the time when people got last names, your ancestors must have been either really good looking, or they continuously burned down their property. Sounds more exciting than my ancestors - they were just a mayor!

Is proper French and Québécois similar to British and Amercan English, or is the difference between French/Québécois significantly larger than between British/American English?
I seriously wonder what people would speak in America if they had decided to adopt German as their primary language. It would probably differ tremendously from proper German and be another accent, like Bavarian, Austrian or Swiss German...or Dutch :tongueout:

Depends if you speak typical Quebec French or if you speak relatively normally. :p
Quebec French uses a lot of expressions, that's why it can be so different. The accent is significantly different, too.
