    That was basically my high school Advanced Placement French class last year. We didn't really do anything, and our French teacher loooved us all, so we had her in the palm of our hands! lol

    Now college intermediated French on the other hand...yeeesh. It's a hardcore class!

    We took french soo seriously in elementary and middle school, and then in HS they're like...
    Hm..
    Freshman year? Let's have inclass fashion shows and talk about sports!
    Sophomore year? I think it's important that we tell someone how we to our houses from the school, watch Sesame Street, and make up stories using pictures that are being displayed ont he board....

    I wonder what it will be next year...

    My FI teachers have almost always been french. French last name, and usually from Quebec or a place like Grande - Digue or Shippigan.
    The only exceptions were my fourth grade teacher who is actually Greek, but speaks perfect French (and english I might add). She might as well be French. And then my current science teacher, but she speaks French well enough.

    I hate my French professor. He over exaggerates the accent. It's the most annoying thing I've ever heard. It sounds like he has lots of phlegm in his throat...he's embarrassing the French speakers of the world...

    Well, everyone speaks french differently.
    Personally, I overexaggerate my r's.
    I can roll them, and I do it's when it's not necessary, so it sounds silly.

    My french teacher is awesome, he's completely random and doesn't make us work.
    I have regular FILA next semester with some crazy woman first thing in the morning
    Intensive French is my specialty becuase I needed a French one and I wasn't taking gym or tech.

    yeah my public school french teachers were always named like mme adams, mme boyd, mme anderchuk....nothing french sounding at all.
    it nice to finally have a real french teacher!! he's from quebec i'm sure. (his accent is super-quebecois) lasy yr my prof was like fresh off the boat from france!!! barely even spoke english!
    i like that though, because then you can hear how french is supposed to sound. (not that im slagging my anglophone teachers, they were great. but its nice to have a first-hand teacher)

    I find most french teachers are from Quebec. My best teacher who taught me in grade 8 (He had us reading Molière for goodness sake! And acting it out too) was from t here I believe. My current french teacher is from... uh somewhere Acadian, I don't know xD

    I'd love to have a teacher from France. They have many different expressions that we don't use, and sometimes Quebec terms get on my nerves.
    Like char. It's not a freaking char, it's 'auto'... :rolleyes1

    That's interesting...
    I can't even figure out why they'd call it that xD

    Well Quebec French is better than Acadian. It makes me wanna shoot myself.
    Chiac (kinda like Franglais) is the most annoying thing listen to.
    Je vais parker le car.

    Dats not French! -headdesk-
    This is not a racist remark, I'm just saying, a lot of the African Canadians speak French, but it's not cajun, but it's impossible to understand.

    French class was never easy in middle school for us, and I dont have it this term in high school so I have no clue how hard its going to be. I do have my french teacher for social studies tho and she's pretty tough so I doubt it'll be easy.

    chiac is horrible! it makes you sound so stupid! and the worst thing about it is that all the teacher let them talk like that. :headache:

    Most of my teachers who taught me in french we're either from quebec or we're acadian. I never actually had one from france, but i've had one who lived in france for the first half of her life and she always called the bathroom "le pipi". she kinda stopped after a while because some people *cough all the immature guys cough* would giggle uncontrollably whenever she said it. :sad2:

    You're so lucky. We do so much stuff in French that's it's not even funny. It's riddiculous. But It's pretty easy, for me anyway, so it's not too big of a deal.

    It's expected that you'd be learning a lot when you're just beginning French in HS.
    Most of what you're learning right now I learned in grade 1 or 2.

    Here's some tips though, not everything has 'la' in front of it. Stylo is a masculin word, so it'd be 'le stylo'.

    And if it's a plural word it's 'les frites'

    Just some mistakes you made int he spelling.

    Misser = Monsieur.
    4= quatre
    3= trois
    16= seize (seh-ze, I think would be the right pronunciation key, I'm not sure).

    K, that's all. I'm sorry I did that, I just tend to correct things xD
