why do you guys refuse to learn English? every other european country can speak perfect english but it's so hard to communicate with a French person bc of your english skills.

As a French student with a C1 English level (European union OLS test) I have a pretty good English. Even my accent is on point thanks to a lot of weeks in London. Also I travelled a lot through Europe (and I'm currently living in Italy) and except un Scandinavia I always found that every country is shit at english. My personal ranking according to my experience in Europe : - Sweden - Denmark - Norway - Netherlands - Swiss - Germany - France - Belgium - Italy - Hungary - Spain - Croatia - Portugal - Greece - deep shit

If you've only come to french part of Belgium of course the level is gonna be similar to the one in France, but Belgium has 60% flemish people who almost all have a very very good English, even stats show the level is better here.

I don't want to learn a language in which jake paul communicates daily. No thank you
2019-01-11 12:41
I understand you, but it's actually because of the French school education that does not teach us as much as in other european countries. And thats actually a fact But yeah we should all know how to speak english correctly or atleast a little bit
2019-01-11 12:41
Anyway it depends on the actual course you follow in France He is right #6

French English level isn't as bad as we say. In European ladders we're not good but not trash either. There's plenty of way worse countries.

A lot of them can it's usually the accent that makes it sound like they can't, better than knowing only one native language

You're crying because you want us to speak your language but you're unable to speak ours. Communicating means both parts have to make a step closer to the other. Not just crying like a baby because you can't educate yourself.

English is global language French is used in France and some parts of Canada

Also half of Africa and a few places in middle east and Asia. Also it's the international diplomatic language and an official language of the Olympics and the United Nations. And still plenty of French people are replying to you in proper English while you would fail to order a coffee I n a French restaurant.

What would you have said if French was chosen as main language for the USA, thus probably the International Language ? I'm sure you wouldn't have complained about it and not even tried to learn another language. He doesn't want us to speak English because that's not his problem.
2019-01-11 13:18
Just wait a few years its becoming trendy to speak english in some social circle

Hello, In france, the system to learn others language is a perfect shit! That why a lot of frenchs are really bad in english. Not directly because of them, but because of the educational system put in place by the government. At the moment, all the effort to learn english is put on the reading, texts analyze, writting (a little). During the studies, we never (NEVER!!!) speak english, never have basics disscussion in english (at least for my generation... i have 35y old now...). My lvl was really bad until i access to my engineer degree where it was mandatory to speak english in order to make somes differents training trip in foreign countries. Currently, i think that the government has understood that learn english is a real priority for the youngness. And some modification are on the road to improve the English learning. At this point, i will make sure that my son will learn english correctly :D But i apologize for all my country ^^ Regards.

Hello, Personally I'm perfectly fine with English, even Japanese (ez C1 European Level, because I'm trilingual) but I think many people here do not like (to learn) English (or any foreign language) because of how they're taught. Our educational system is quite shit and not pedagogue. Many important notions aren't taught or not the "good" way. (And I believe that's also the same in maths, physics, ...). I even remember in main courses when the teacher wanted students to talk only in English but "nah f*** him/her, go speak in French I'm lazy I don't want to make any effort and if you speak in English you're stupid and annoying". Yes, many frenchies are lazy and want others to be as lazy as them and if they're not, then they're not cool and not worth living with. In France, there's a culture of mediocrity : those who learn well and finally get a good job and a good salary are hated and those who are idiots that didn't want to learn and are not well paid are making the victims and accusing the ones who achieve things that it's because of them they are so bad. I kinda hate my country because of this. Because people don't want to learn by themselves and sh!! on others who learn. Also, French is quite hard itself and pronunciation greatly differs from English. That's why you can hear the so-called French "Baguette" Accent. Yes and there are people that are "nationalists" and do not want to learn a foreign language, but that's up to them.

French people are to snobby, they only answer you in their language. Disgusting country, ate least it is slowly becoming nice with a lot of nice people from Africa. maybe in 10-15 years it become proper country
2019-01-11 13:22
tl;dr: It's because of their school system, and the fact that most of their media is dubbed - according to a French friend of mine. I'm also hypothesising here a little bit, but I presume that since French has such a global reach (yes, not the same as English, but it's probably the second most important language in the world along with Spanish after that) there's less incentive to become fluent in English, compared with us here in Finland for example - where our language is only useful domestically. 90% of what I read is English, pretty much everything I do on the internet is in English, I even use English at work sometimes to communicate with international workers. French has such a large presence in the world that maybe it wouldn't be necessary to become quite as proficient in a second language.
