Re: Speaking french

I know...I thought I would just join. LOL

Nothing like a bit of humour in life. Some people get it, some don't.

You alright Patf...have not heard from you for while.

Re: Speaking french

Years ago in Cannes I met a young Swiss guy, maybe in his early 20's, who spoke German. Italian, French, English, and Japanese, seemingly fluently, to a group of people with those languages as their native tongues.

He carried on simultaneous conversations with two or three at once, switching easily from one language to another. I believe he said he spoke seven languages fluently, and some others not so well.

His English was certainly excellent, and his French seemed good to me with my knowledge of it at the time.

So I was part-prepared to believe Spider. That is, apart from his inferring he went back to the NE for a holiday.Big Smile [:D]

I took OH to Robin Hood Bay once.

I think we had fish and ships in a pub.

It was loverly. I would go back.

Robin Hood Bay is as equally as nice as anything you can find in France. And I bet the food is better as well.

We left the UK in 1962 and have been back for varying periods about a dozen times.

The last time was in 2009, when we stayed 3 days.

It never seemed to get any better.

Re: Speaking french

Ah nomoss, where does get better then!

France certainly changed during my time there and the Uk changed during my time away, but better is not a word I would use for either.

And last time we were back in France, the traffic was horrendous. My friend had stopped driving to work, and caught the bus as the bus lanes got the buses through.

So where does get 'better' and not just different.
