Do you think French is a romantic language? Do you know how to speak in French?

I'm currently doing h. w. and I'm trying to learn French and the noises I have to make in order say certain words sound so ugly and awkward. I think it's so beautiful when people know how to speak French correctly; I don't know I'm doubting myself. If you know how to speak french. what helped you learn this language?

  • Je parle un peu le francais... I think the biggest limitation when learning the language is that no one tells you about all the silent letters. you see all the romance languages like to have words flow into each other and learning something like italian, the pronunciation is very literal, you say what you see and thats it. in order to make words flow, they add extra vowels onto the end that also contain information about the person who is doing those things. the french on the other hand go the completely opposite direction and add letters onto the end that are always silent, unless the next word starts with a vowel. "comment" becomes "commun" or but when you say "comment-allez vous" its "commun-tall-ay voo". to make it even more confusing, there is also a conditional vowel shift, e's generally make an "uh" sound, unless there is a silent consonant at the end, in which it makes an "ay" sound. thats why "le francais" is pronounced "luh fron-say" versus "les miserables" which is pronounced "lay miser-ob-luh" with just a hint of the L at the end.

    you can learn some of this stuff on duolingo, but i think the biggest limitation for me as someone who has finished the french tree is that my grammar is still awkward and sounds strange to french speakers. but there's only so much you can do without moving to france or having someone to actually speak with.

  • I know some german, french and italian, and I think they are pretty sexy once you get the accents down. You aren't going to sound sexy when you're just learning. I sounded like a idiot when I was first learning.

  • I never liked Friends - out of all the languages it just sounds fucking weird. It's like they swallowed a dick and are trying to talk with it still in their throat.

  • I don't think it's romantic at all. French people sound like pricks talking. True story.

    Although I think it's more about the person talking than the language itself. Some people's charisma can be spotted in any language.

  • French sounds beautiful, it's one of the most sexy sounding languages I've ever heard. As for whether or not it's "technically" beautiful, I don't care. Bon appetit le pommes!

      @TesticleMonster My French accent isn't that well that someone else could understand me saying this xD But remembers me when a German explained me how to speak (Hip-Hop-slang style + their grammar): It uses less nice words than in English and makes the words less understandable

  • No, I do not think so. Personally I find it pretty annoying and worst choice I could have taken as my second foreign language during my school-time

  • I have problems with certain sounds too like their special "r" so I never learned it. When someone uses it when talking to me I think he wants to make fun of me because I don't understand it and it could be something like "mange de la merde".

    Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir? xD (About only French I can speak)

  • Yeah it's one of the official languages in my country and I'm quarter French, I don't think French sounds particularly romantic though - I like Italian, which I don't speak, much better!

  • I took it for 3 years, and it's 'romantic' because it derived from latin like italian, portuguese, Spanish etc.

    Does that make it romantic in the dating sense of the word? No. It's more who the person talking is rather than the language they use to communicate.
