Welcome to The French Thread. I know I'm probablt the only person here that takes French -waves a Canadian flag- because it's the second main language in my country, but I want to educate the members here aswell because it'll make me feel smarter :whistle:

Anyway, there's a lot of French rules and words. First rule of French; don't use a translating website. They actually translate it all wronge. It's ok to put in one word if you're curious, but a paragraph, no-the verbs and other things get messed up. let me explain;
Manger means to eat.
Je mange-I eat
Translator would make it
Je manger.
See? There's more but I'm lazy...

So here are some words..
J'alle-I go
Tu alle-you go
Il/Elle alle(e add for femine)-he/she goes
Nous allons-We go
Vous allez-They go
Ils/Elles alle(e)s-more than one boy or more than one girl (only one gender...) goes.

Travailler means to work and Voyager means to travel.

Well, there's some for now...oh! I can tell you how to say 'not' in French!

J'alle a travailler (I go to work)
Je n'alle pas a travailler (I don't go to work)

Je mange bonbon (I eat candy)
Je ne mange pas bonbon (I don't eat candy)

Another rule if a word ending with a vowel and the next word starts with a vowel, you combine the two words...
Tomorrow I'll add more, such as questions.

Feel free to post your French words and ask me anything to translate!

To me, french is the only language in which I choke while speaking it.

...

Seriously though,I want to learn how to say 'The chicken devil' in french. That way I'll be able to say it in three languages.

Alls I know is that 'fromage' (or something like that...) means cheese. And that 'bourgeoisie' is spelled NOTHING like how it's pronounced, nor is 'Versailles'.

_________________
"Irregardless" and "Over exaggerated" are NEVER CORRECT EVER because they are redundant
Regardless means "without regard", and adding "ir" on the front actually makes it a double negative; exaggerate means "to overstate" so you're literally saying "over overstate."
Example: I can not exaggerate the importance of this fact enough, regardless of how often people ignore it.

"mon hydroglisseur est plein d'anguillies"

This means, 'My hovercraft is full of eels'

You mean Je. Not Tu. If you said Tu, it would mean 'you are eating pie'.
Je mange la tarte.
