That's right Jack, however there are false friends (words that are pretty similar but have different meanings).
I'll start tomorrow a bit, it would be nice if they teached me the same things but in french :)


Oh I see, you want to learn some French? I think that's a good idea, language trading. I wish I could teach something other than how to understand Scottish people when they speak :P

It's okay Jack, it's not your fault that you don't need to learn other language since English is like a universal language, but learning other languages is great. If you visit another country, try always to speak a little their language (even if it's only things like hello or excuse me). It's good for a native to know a foreigner was interested in the language. I'll be totally up for that when I travel. :)

Oh no, I want to know German and Spanish fluently, by the time I'm 30, both places would be really cool to move to, maybe even Portugal, you never know... no pressure Andre :D

I fully agree with that, there's nothing more ignorant than entering a country and completely disrespecting the people who look after you on holiday such as bar staff for example, and just asking for drinks in English, I would at least know the basics such as the names of the drinks in the language and at least to say please and thank you. Its basic civilty.

PORTUGUESE LESSON #1
In this lesson we'll learn some basic greetings/how to start a conversation.

Hello = Olá (and we also can say oi, which is the portuguese hi)
How are you? = Como estás? (como está if you're speaking to someone you don't know)
Thank you = Obrigado (very much = muito obrigado)
Sorry/Excuse me = Desculpa (desculpe in formal)
My name is... = O meu nome é...
You're welcome = De nada
Welcome = Bem-vindo
Goodbye = Adeus
Good morning = Bom dia
Good afternoon = Boa tarde
Good night = Boa noite

Note: in portuguese we don't have good evening, it depends if there's still sun or it's night. If there is sun, then boa tarde, if night boa noite.

And I think these are the basics :)
Lolo or Selfish, please teach me this in french!!

I'm probably going to learn all this in Lleida's EOI, since i'm going to study Translation and Interpretation in the university

i'll do English, German, French, Italian , Russian and MAYBE Arab

then when I finish here i'll go to the Barcelona one to do Portuguese, Swedish and Dutch, if I have more time i'll try to do Chinese, Japanese or Korean

in the future i'll have to move somewhere else because I also want to do Danish and Finnish

Hello = Salut /Or Bonjour (in the mornig) and Bonsoir (in the afternoon or in the night)
How are you? = Comment vas tu ? Or, Comment ca va ? (more unformal)
Thank you = Merci ( Very much = Merci Beaucoup)
Sorry = Désolé
Excuse me = Excusez-moi (more formal) excuse moi (unformal)
My name is... = Je m'appelle ... /Or, Mon nom est (but i think nobody use it)
You're welcome = De Rien
Welcome = Bienvenue
Goodbye = Aurevoir
Good morning = Bonjour
Good afternoon = Bonne après-midi
Good evening = Bonne soirée
Good night = Bonne nuit


I don't know if in france it's exactly that because there are some differences here in french west indies like say bonsoir in the afternoon. selfish will confirm lol

I usually say "Bonsoir" when it's after 5PM, sometimes when it's summer around 7PM.
I think its right.

About good afternoon, I still don't know if it's "une" or "un" après midi lmao. I'd say "un", so it'd be "Bon après-midi" instead of "Bonne après-midi", but hell, who cares kkkk, it's like the same pronounciation. :D ;D kkk.

I always say "bonjour" when it's during the afternoon. (which means I say bonjour from the morning like 7AM to 3PM). i never say "good afternoon", I always say "have a good day", "bonne journée, au revoir" kkk.

André. I want to see your level in French. You will have to translate this, without cheating, just searching inside of your head, what the words could be.

Translate me to French :
- It's Sunday, how are you after seeing her ?
- I am not hungry.
- The flowers are not black.
- You can't enter in this house.

I'm confused with the pronounciation with some of these

My name is... = O meu nome é...
Goodbye = Adeus (is this pronounced like the Spanish "Adios"?)
Good afternoon = Boa tarde (bo-A tar-day, does that sound right to you?)
Good night = Boa noite (noa-tay is how I pronounced it)

I usually say "Bonsoir" when it's after 5PM, sometimes when it's summer around 7PM.

Isn't un the masculine word and une the feminine?

Yes, it is. It means "a, an".
"an afternoon", I would say it's masculine in French, but it seems more neutral, because of "after / après" and "noon / midi"

It's better for you to check out google translate or something that has a voice on it, it'll make it simplier than explaining to you how to pronnouce it, it's difficult for me. The boa tarde might be good, but the adeus is not like spanish, check it anyways ;)

Andre, you don't need to know a syllable of French to move to Canada; that's only the case if you want to move to Quebec & New Brunswick, to an extent.

I would never move to Quebec, as a lot of them tend to just mostly want to associate with their fellow Francophones.

Here's what you need:

http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~steffan/canadianisms.html

And boy = b'y in Newfoundland. People from Newfoundland are also called Newfies, Jon Pardy is a Newfie.

A hoodie is a bunny-hug on Saskatchewan.

Are you going to do Uni in Canada?

Right now, I'm really desperately considering St. John's, Newfoundland as my location.  ;D ;D ;D

The uni in St. John's, NL for grad school charges about $3,000, so if I get on BBUS, I can pay my way through grad school by week five.

I know, but since I want to probably work in an embassy it's better to also know french since it's an official language. I would love to go to University in Canada, but that's just far from reality. €400 for a plain ticket, plus paying a rent for a house and university. I would probably only do that by working while studying.
