Apprendre à se connaître!
Bonjour les francophones!
Est-ce que vous aimez avoir un conversation en anglais?
Je suis une fille anglaise, mais Je suis une parfaite linguiste!
Je peux parler anglais(mére langue), français, allemand, et des langues asiatiques comme arab et un peu persan. Et Je suis en train de apprendre italien et espanol.
Et Je pense que Je suis un linguiste car Je voyage beaucoup :)
Je peut aider vous en anglais et vous aidez moi en français ^_^
Commençons maintenant une conversation en anglais!
Hello! You have a tendency to keep the English syntax while writing French (mother tongue => langue maternelle); I can help you => je peux vous aider)
Also in French we don't write "je" with a capital letter unless it's at the beginning of the sentence.
Finally, if you want a talk, I was wondering, reading your post, what is a linguist for you or in general in English? Because in France, being "linguiste" is something more complicated than being able to speak some languages, it's more of a science.
Hi, thanks for helping me :) wow I actually did not know that O.o Really in France a person who is a linguist is as capable as a scientist.
In some books, being a linguist is to be able to speak at least 5 languages like the story of Alfred Nobel (He was an excellent linguist when he was 20 because he could speak English, German, Swedish, Russia and French.)
Linguistics is a science but not like maths or physics, because languages are so different in time in space that you can't ever be 100% right about it. Well I'm studying linguistics in France (though the bachelor is called "Sciences du langage", French having two different words for language : langage (the ability that everyone has to speak), and langue (such as French, English, etc...)). We're not learning any language in class, we're just seeing a lot of examples from a lot of different languages, mainly about how languages are structured, classified and how to collect datas about languages we don't really know yet. I think that's the same in English (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linguistics), but generally people don't know it because it's not something that's really known. Anyway, in France people would rather say that someone is a polyglot (quelqu'un est polyglotte) and I've never heard anyone say that someone is "un linguiste" because he speaks a lot of languages, however when I say that I'm studying linguistics people are like "Ohh you must speak a lot of languages" and I'm like "Yeep but not because of that" haha
Hello ! How are you ? I begin to learn English! Je n’ai pas tout compris parce que je débute en anglais et que je m’efforce de ne pas utiliser le traducteur, mais j’ai quand même compris le sens général ! Félicitations Sofia pour toutes ces langues parlées, merci Dorian pour ces explications très intéressantes et bonne chance dans tes études. See you soon
hello, it's very interesting to speak with you. You can choose a subject, i write in english and you in french. For example : what we will doing for the last night of the year ? personnaly, i live in the south of France. The weather is so good that my husband and i decided to go more near the north. We dream of a walk with a warm coat, we dream of the snow, i hope that we can realise these dreams ! :-) we will return to the office only on the 3 january, so we can come back on the sunday and have a rest the monday before start again to work. For Christmas, we were at home with all my family, a lot meals to prepare, a lot of things to do for everything is well... for next saturday, we decide just an apertive served with little foods salty and sugary. We really like good wine and champagne so we will choose all of them with a lot of attentions ! and after, we'll prepare a little travel in London mid january. Have a good day, i hope you'll answer !
