Parlez-vous Francais?

Parlez-Vous Français?

I don't. 

I found an interesting blog though through Tino Buntic's 2000 Bloggers project.  I put my mug on for my ColumbusBestBlog.com on.... have you put a blog on? You get lots of links to interesting blogs that have linked to it, like... 

LOICELEMEUR in English

LOICELEMEUR in French

There are the two ..'s over the I. They are oomlots or the two dots are an oomlot...  I don't know how to do tglobe manhose on my keyboard. Or really care to...ugly American... Yo hablo Espanol... but not mucho.   

This blogger has 36 comments on the French version and two comments on the English version of the blog about the photos on  Tino's blog.   Below the blogs title LOICELEMEUR it says: 

"Les medias traditionnels diffusent de messages.  Les blogs demarrant des conversatioons. " It's missing the fancy shmancy accents and oomlots.

The  English translation is "Traditional media sends messages.  Blogs start conversations."

Smart, very smart....

Really do you speak French?  Take it in school? Here's an MSN Encarta Quiz to see how much you remember.

My score...it's got to be an easy quiz... remember "Yo hablo Espanol..." but not "mucho." I took Spanish in school, not French!

Excellent!

You got 8/10 correct. Yep, you're smart. Are you putting that big brain to good use?

No.

Well, I took French in HS, but that was nearly 50 yrs ago. I only got 7/10 right. I did get this one correct, as might be expected: J'ai un chien!

A boyfriend in high school had a dog named Chien and our cat was named Chat so that is how I got that one right. 

Have you put your picture on Tino's blog? The umbrella one would be neat if you used Active Rain....

I took 6 years of French, and I really didn't think I would do well on the quiz, but I got all 10!  Cute test!

Jim or Maria...? good work.  I wonder if they have a Spanish test.  I never thought to look.  I took six years of Spanish... hopefully I could do at least as well as the French test.

Elaine:  The umbrella picture will stand out.  When I was on the French fella's site I saw more faces I recognized, not that I always knew a name to go with the face... but I saw Chris Elizabeth Griffith and said hey there is Chris Elizabeth Griffith...

Maureen,

I got 9/10...but that probably comes from visiting France many times in the past 30 years.

Yes, they do have a test en espanole...just go all the way down the answer page and there's a link. Si.

sadly after 6 years of Spanish I  get the same score as I did on a language I never learned.   8 out of 10 there too...

If you are going to take the Spanish test don't look at these.....

3Incorrect
The correct answer:ANice to meet you!
Your answer:BTastes great!
"¡Tanto gusto!" means "Nice to meet you!"

4Incorrect
The correct answer:CIt doesn't bother me.
Your answer:BDon't touch me.
"No me molesta" means "It doesn't bother me."

I don't speak French, but I love Tino Buntic.  He has done wonders for my technorati rank...

Looking at the link on my blog Loic Le Meur blog [FR] it has spaces... ColumbusBestBlog.com must look freaky in other languages...

Something of the sea?

That was fun, Maureen!  I never did study French, but took Spanish (2 years) and Latin (2 years) in high school and studied Italian for 3 years in college and lived in Italy that last year. So - I got 7/10 right with the French quiz and I'm pretty pleased with myself.

I sometimes go into Italian chat rooms now to keep up the language (sono quasi fluente - I am almost fluent) but I tell ya, the language in the chat rooms is not exactly what is taught in school!

That's a lot of languages, Mary. 

I grabbed a Spanish newspaper at a local restaurant on Friday evening because the headline grabbed me.  I asked the waiter to tell me what it said, he grabbed another of the waitresses to help him... I assumed they both read Spanish better than me but they don't... "Catolicos usaran cellular en misa."   there are some accent mark over a couple of vowels too. Yo no soy fluente en Espanol....? maybe. 

I would think knowing Latin.. or trying to learn Latin anyway helps with Spanish, French and Italian.

10/10!  I guess all those French lessons paid off.  Too bad they speak so fast in France that my college French doesn't really help.
