No Parlez-Vous Francais

Post by nekot » Tue Aug 01, 2017 7:28 pm

Blue.
The Blues.
Blue Cheese.

I feel blue.
I can listen to only a minimum amount of The Blues.
I like Blue Cheese.

I prefer "bleu" to "blue."

But I don't speak French.

I remember saying "Je ne parle pas français (I don't speak French)" so proudly since that was like the only line I knew in French. Now I recall my days in Paris almost 30 years ago. Thanks for reminding me.

Thanks soular.

Funny thing...when I was posting this, I thought..."Really the title should say 'I don't speak French' in French, instead of 'do you speak French' with a 'no' in front of it. But I don't know how to say 'I don't speak French,' and I don't feel like looking it up. Maybe someone who reads it will know how to say 'I don't speak French.' "

And wa-la ... now I have it! :lol:

Since I have it, I thought again about changing the title and decided not to. Because the title helps exhibit that I don't speak French. I mean..It's at least a grammatically wrong title.
