    I'm using that already & it's not bad. The trouble is I don't actually get to speak to many French people on a daily basis. I'll get there though.

    Every day you buy bread or visit a café try to tell a joke in French. When you can tell a joke in another language you are close to becoming an advanced speaker...

    Hmm, the natives already laugh at me pretty much all the time when I speak. :)

    Ça pourrait être pire, imagine la réaction de bordelais ou de parisiens, connus pour leur bienveillance et leur cordialité légendaires :D

    I am going back to my French studies again. I detest the "my language is better" * attitude of some people I have met. Thing is, this language is so much fun...

    * I work in hospitality, some tourists are the worst.

    Tourists kind of gave an excuse for ignorance though, it's why they're tourists. I really need to learn fast.

    Learn effectively. Short sentences are better. Avoid long sentences. Besides ignorance is no longer an excuse in this globalised world.

    In Amsterdam we stay friendly but if even basic English is too difficult for you, sorry you miss out. When you deal with tourists who cannot even read basic signs on the train station or airport in simple English (mind you), you are almost forced to become their guide.

    You want ignorance? Look at this island nation across the channel near Calais. (If you want that mess be my guest.)

    Elecson near Gare de Lyon. Cool dudes.
    Son Video has a cool showroom on avenue de Friedland for portable gear.
    Enjoy Paris and if you come to Son Video, it’s right by my office, so you can come and try the Aficionado at late office hours :)

    Salut!

    Je suis de Marseille mais j'habite en Arizona, a Phoenix. Surpris de voir autant de Francais sur SBAF.

    Juste un ptit coucou en passant!
