TGIF: How to never be unnatural or ridiculous October 24, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff.

Sorry for the blog silence this week. I am completely overwhelmed with work and am counting the hours to Friday afternoon, when all of my projects are due. Hopefully next week will be better. I only have about 40 pages of medical invoices and referrals to translate. Then I leave for FLORIDA! I can’t wait…

Anyway, it is Friday! Time for another video. Since I don’t speak French I can’t judge how good this gentleman’s French is, but I doubt he learned it in two weeks. Good thing he doesn’t look unnatural or ridiculous doing it. 🙂 Have a great weekend! I hope to stay as far away from the computer as I can.

Very funny. I don’t speak French either, but sounds pretty good to me, and surely they chose a native or near-native speaker. Learning a language in two weeks? Don’t even get me started…

Well, his French is anything but perfect (“je suis satisfait de changement” -?!?!). He is also very hard to understand. Besides, claiming to teach people a language to perfection in just two weeks is a slap in the face to all of us who spend years and even decades trying to master a language. And none of us would ever say we are “perfect”. In languages, there is no such thing as perfection.
