On a good night I can at least hit the board.
If you have a mac, you can change your keyboard settings via onboard software to reflect different language settings (and keyboard layouts).
Eh oui, c'est comme ça.
It's bad enough when the operating system decides that I have a US keyboard...
Or when you forget which 'c' to use, LOL.
i don't type in French often enough for it to be instinctive, so i won't tell you how long it took to write that one simple phrase,
and it still had 'un erreur d'orthographe' la-dedans.
I do have a Mac, but I still can't speak, or read French. Is there an app for that?
My 'app' was 2 years spent in a French boarding school.
All girls, and run by nuns.
Very strict discipline.
Sure you'd be up for that?
OUCH! Can I just do a weekend retreat at the beach instead?
That literally gives me chills, not the good kind either. Maybe I just have some misconceptions...
7 years with a French girlfriend , and 2 living in Paris and Montpellier for me...
If the mere thought of it gives you chills, then you're probably close to the right idea, actually.
But i did learn a lot (and not just the French language, either), and i do have very good manners.
Don't you mean "May I have...?" As in,
"May I have a large coffee with lots of frothed-up homogenised milk, please?"
"Can I get a latte?" Receives the answer, "Yes.", but no coffee!
You had it easy, LOL.
I'll give you aluminIUM. I mean, after all, because strontium is not strontum and plutonium is not plutonum.
Oh, I get enough english accents to choke a horse!
Every show on the science channel has an expert or three that are accented.
Top gear also. Plus, just about every makeup and most luxury car commercials.
I also hear plenty of 60s, 70s, and 80s english rock stars that enunciate the words properly when singing, but revert to verbal murder when speaking.
other grievous examples:
The w is first!
Length x width x ????
Only one is correct.
You're lucky, you can turn them off. I hear them everywhere I go...
You hear Jeremy Clarkson in your head?
Since you put it that way......
I will, from this moment forth, consider myself more fortunate.
A have instead of a have not, if you will.
Some of us don't have the right keys on our keyboard.. Though with Windows, you can hold the Alt key and type a key code on the numeric keypad for special characters:
There was a guy named Jay Nay Say Qua. In French-speaking areas, nobody could figure out his name when asked.
I think you mean "kezboard"..
Nah, that clown hasn't lived around here for years... We consider him to be an export, we don't want him back.
Well, I knew his brother, Jay Nay Say Pas.
Or did I?
Je m'appelle bagiette mon petit cheval!
I too speak French
