Ok, as you might know I'm indeed trying to learn some french here, got some grammar literature and vocabulary lists and stuff and I more or less just started to learn (very) basic vocabulary and pronounciation for some time. Since I have some kind of deal with Tho about learning each other's languages sooner or later (well, later) I apparently have no choice anyways

However, in general I'm opening this thread for:
- annoy the frenchies with stupid questions
- ask others who might also have tried french for literature tips/websites/etc. (anyone here?)
- discuss about advances and problems with french in general

Also, let me (try to) add my opinion:
Je suis d'avis que les règles de la orthographe du français sont une pain in the ass grande.

It's "de l'orthographe" , "le" or "la" with "i,o,e,u,a" -> "l'"

James is right :>

And as a german you can't tell our grammar rules are a pain in the ass, it's just unfair.

Also I'm open to any question you might have about our insanity, and will try to explain the best I can with examples.

Alors, je n'ai pas dit grammaire mais orthographe. En fait, je suis d'avis que la grammair francais est passablement facile, sinon je ne serais pas à même de construire des phrases approximativement correctement.
(* I did not say grammar but orthography. In fact, i find the french grammar quite simple, else i would not be able to construct roughly correct sentences)

(however it took me a while to build this and its probaly gibberish please correct me)
However of course my spanish knowledge helps a lot here.

merci, Je utiliserai.
[Somehow I feel the word for "this" is missing here, right?]

Alright Zongo not bad. Here's my correction :
Grammaire francaise (c takes like ¢ which my phone doesn't have), approximativement correctes, and your "this" would be "je l'utiliserai".

oh, oui, j'ai oublié modifier l'adjectif according to (selon?) le genre, correct?
*Oh, right, i forgot to modify the adjective according to the sex, right?

ok, here i just screwed up the usage of adverbs vs. adjectives ..

James wrote:

pronoms objectives, right? Je me rappelle que j'ai détesté les déjà dans espagnol..
*I remember that i hated those already in spanish..


merci beaucoup

En fait, il n'est difficile pas si on sait espagnol. Mais ceci no signifie que je aussi peux parler .. pas encore suis trop lent.
*In fact, it ain't difficult if one knows spanish. But that does not mean that i'm able to speak.. not yet, I'm too slow.

The only thing I can correct here the last word. Correctement is "correctly", and should here be replaced by "correctes", which means "correct", with respect to the plural feminine
