> Please allow me to ask: Why french? (especially this year)

Does this have something to do French oposing the war in Iraq this year? I thought that anti-french feeling was just a thing of a few republicans going out of control at that specific moment in time, but from what it seems there is actually someone that still bears a grudge on the french for not supporting the war. Disgusting.

That 'someone' couldn't possibly be me (although I don't like President Chirac): I'm french. LOL
The reason why I was asking why french had to do with the interest of that particular language (why not spanish for instance or italian, japanese or chinese).
I think you misinterpreted my question José, sorry about the confusion.

C'est ne pas un probleme pour moi!

God, where has my french gone. I'm spanish!

Ce n'est pas un problème pour moi ;-)

Abito a Besancon (80 km ovest di la Svizzera) da quindici anni, ma sono nato in Bretagna. Barcelona, non la conosco bene. C'è una cattedrale davvero magnifica, no. Vedo con piacere che la lingua francese ti interessa. Che cosa fa per imparare cuesta lingua? Parli con i francesi che incontra? O parli soltanto inglese (e anche lo spagnolo, certo)? Che lingua preferisce che scriva? Francese, italiano o inglese?

Prefiero que hables en castellano, cojones :) ¿Qué te hace pensar que tengo puta idea de italiano? :P
Pase algún verano que entro en la Maine-et-Loire, Cholet? Nantes? por ahí, y por aquellos tiempos podia mantener una conversación en francés sin problemas, pero con el tiempo se me ha olvidado todo.
Me da igual la lengua en la que escribas mientras te pueda entender, que en principio seria Inglés, Italiano, Frances, Español o catalan.

Est-ce que tu es un ours?

Woof, Lapin!

You are so multi-lingual!! :o)

So true. I certainly never supported this war, and I admire the French for taking a strong stand. And more and more people in the US are seeing what a big mistake this was.

My father's side of the family is French Canadian, and although I took one year in high school, I never really learned to speak very well. I can read a little better. But I'd love to be able to speak (and understand) fluently someday.

Hehheh...I'm enjoying the conversation you're having with iberianbear--he's a good friend of mine. Salut!

It would certainly be easy for me/us in France to say: TOLD YOU SO GUYS! So cheap too. One is never wrong never taking any sides, right? Let's be honest here: some of the reasons why France/President Chirac decided not to support the US invading Irak is that France/we had huge financial intests (linked to petrol) there. The US being there automatically meant us loosing incomes. I don't trust Mr Chirac, period. He's a republican (though this would be slightly different from what republicans stand for in the US). Whatever he said then just happened to match my point of view: No war. This is that much credit he gets from me.
French canadian on your father's side huh! We so love them on this side of the Atlantic ocean. So sad they don't get the support they deserve from us. It so happened I met a canadian couple (from Quebec) while visiting Tuscania (Italy) last year: how much did they contribute to make that journey special I don't know. Should this couple reflect what people from Quebec really are it is a treat just to know you :-D
