Encore quelqu'une qui aime les bateaux! Bienvenue!

Et les Vikings (ou les Normands, comment les rois de France les ont appelles quand ils venaient de bruler leurs villes) sont interessants d'etre etudies dans leur habitat naturel...

Bonjour ShadowyEclipse. Où as-tu appris le francais?

Bonjour à tout le monde, petite question (je suis curieuse de nature :-)): quel genre de romans ecrivez-vous?

En ce moment, je travaille sur un YA paranormal romance/historical (avec des passages dans la France du 16ème siècle :-))

En tout cas bon courage à toutes et à tous!

Cool, des français ! Mais vous êtes partout bien sûr...^^

Je suis pas française, mais je vis en France depuis plus de 5 ans. A la base je suis finlandaise mais j'ai été en contact avec la France et la langue française toute ma petite vie. Du coup je pense même pas à retourner "chez moi". Faudrait juste que j'aille faire un petit séjour quelque part où on parle anglais l'histoire de pas tout oublier de cette langue-là non plus...

Je peux écrire et lire un peu le français, mais seulement un peu (honte a moi).


Le français est une langue belle.

Bonjour!
Je suis américaine. J'ai étudié le français à l'école pour quatre ans, mais je n'ai pas le parlé pour l'année passé. J'ai oublié beaucoup.

I hope that was understandable...

It was ! Not many mistakes ("je ne l'ai pas parlé/utilisé l'année passée"). Four years is not much, I'm impressed. I doubt I'd be able to write the same phrases in Swedish and I studied it for at least six years...

Bonjour! Je suis americaine, et je ne sais pas comment faire les accents a l'internet (je l'ai su...mais, helas, je l'ai oublie). J'aime la France et les francais! Mon mari et moi, nous nous sommes rencontres a Dijon, ou nous avons fait des etudes a l'universite de bourgogne. Nous sommes tous les deux americains (de l'Ohio), mais c'etait en France que nous nous sommes tombes amoureux!

Je suis heureuse de trouver ce thread ou je peux parler francais.

Bonne journee!

For those looking to input the accents with their keyboard, set your keyboards to either US International, French, Canadian Multilingual or Canadian French. If you are using Windows 7, the language button (the keyboard) should be near the clock on the bottom.

Bonjour J'habite à Genève, et parle français quasiment tous les jours. C'est sympa de voir qu'il y a également des francophones ici. Une bonne façon de faire connaissance avec une petite partie de cette très grande communauté.

Salut! J'ai étudié le français pendant trois ans à l'université et puis j'ai eté en Allemagne pendant 7 ans. Maintenant de retour en Nouvelle-Zélande et j'ai pu visiter la Nouvelle-Caledonie pour rafraichir un peu la langue. Je suis traductrice surtout d'allemand et parfois de français.

Allo, allo!

J'habite au Québec, mais franchement, mon français est terrible. J'peu parler assez bien (en joual ), mais mon écriture est... passable, mais pas très bonne. :P J'ai grandi au Québec, et ma mère est québécoise, alors... j'ai appris à lire et écrire le français quand j'étais jeune, mais j'suis aller à une école "bilingue" mais plus anglaise, et par conséquence mon français s'est détériorée beaucoup. Je devrais lire plus de livres en français pour améliorer la qualité de mes écrits, j'pense. Au moins je peux parler couramment? Aha.
