ha ha ha…good one! (my sympathies with those who find themselves in this sort of situation!) 🙂
I think you are very funny.
French is actually the easiest of the languages I have studied (despite the varied and silly verb forms). The feeling of too many vowels, especially in this case, has to do with dialect and regional accents. Some places like to sound important by drawing out normally short vowels to be long, or making long vowels exceedingly long.
though English is much more irregular! ;D which isn’t the case with French, to my knowledge…
Yep, I’m learning French and can definitely relate to that! haha
ouais, c’est vrai. I think English makes no sense either though
As a language teacher and learner, I can see the humour in both sides. Although I still get immensely frustrated with students who can’t spell the word “a”!
“ouais” is not an actual word! It comes from “oui” (yes); dont waste your time learning the first one, it doesnt sound nice!
I love French, but I do know what you mean. There’s so many rules to formulate a sentence, all because of tenses and meanings, and then things have to be an “a” or a “the”, and they have to be masculine or feminine, and the position of the words don’t match the position in English, and ARGH!
went to one class for french 1000
then swapped it for nutrition
I know what you mean but in all honesty, English isn’t any better. take that combination of letters: ough. How do you pronounce that? Like in through, though or tough? english does not make any sense and I am sure the only reason for that is to take the p*** out of foreigners like me… Then again, I am German so almost all languages appear to be simple to me.
I was having such a crap day, but then I read this, thanks so much for the laugh!
Hahaha! I can totally relate!
lol…took french for 5 years and then thought i’d try spanish. big. huge. mistake. my brain did not know which way was up! it was so bad i dropped the class and never tried again. 🙂
Country. Best language ever.
what word were you actually trying to pronounce? Was it oeuf? It was oeuf, wasn’t it?
So much pain! I’m trying to learn French and it’s throwing me all over the shop! My family is French – you’d think I’d have the hang of this by now!
Exactly why i gave up it up..!
