French stereotypes in you country
 | 
France DirtyPerez 
What are the stereotypes that you have about french people that are particular to your country. We all know the basic ones : grumpy, dirty, romantic, arrogant, immigrants, baguette, frog eaters ... I was curious to know if in some country people had a different stereotype. Have a good day my mens !

Very true man. Most of us have a terribly hard french accent + we speak english very bad. The reason why is because at school, if a student tries to have a decent accent, people will make fun of them because of it. I personnaly find this really dumb.

Bad mannered... tbh id love to learn french, its a beautiful language, but even trying it out in some regions in of your country is a test to my temper. For instance, you if you into a backery and ask for deux croissant (with my 75% correct pronunciation) and i hold up two fingers AND point at the damn croissants, the lady behind the counter acts like she doesnt understand. Its just so damn rude. People in other south european countries are so much more friendly and helpful.

Ironic that you talk about french bad manners. So many people say that danes are rude/bad mannered/distant, at least until you get to know them (just look at youtube videos of people who have visited/lived in Denmark)

why is it ironic? The question was what annoy you the most about french people, not danes. Im just citing my experience. I know danes are hard to get close to, but we dont mock turists for not speaking perfect danish, and we are quite helpful when it comes to english and making ourself understandable in general.

Don't care for spain, but I bet that Israelis are even louder, it's just that french is such a disgusting language.. When spoken loudly it's tormenting. I am Israeli and by no means I claim that hebrew is a nice sounding language, it's just that I understand it unlike french.. I'd give hebrew a 3/10 but french is 1/10

Actually, most of the French people I know think that Belgium likes them and that all we say is just humour. It's false, we really hate you. In Greece, we don't like tourists that don't try to talk English at least a bit (talking about real Greece, not Athens or any touristic island) and with all due respect, being pissed because we don't speak French is definitively not a good reaction. The fact that, because you learnt to say "kalimera" or "efxaristo" wrong, you believe that it's our fault if we don't understand your words is pretty annoying.

Yes i never got why french people thought there would be anyone talking french somewhere else than french speaking countries... Residual colonial mentality i guess.. Are you greek or belgian? I know that some belgian don't like us at all. But people think they do because the only belgian they know are singers / actors ... And those people have to like us orelse they couldn't live from what they do (i mean without the french market).
2019-09-25 11:21
I'm both, that's why I talked about both countries. To be honest, it depends on several things: Accent, Region, Respect, TV. That the first ones that come to my mind. - Accent: Very subjective but I have to admit that A lot don't like the French accent (That's my case, I have no problem with people disliking mine, that's just my opinion). - Region: Depending on the region of France, you have a completely different behaviour. Paris is obviously the worse. The north (Bretagne/Normandie/Pas-de-Calais/Ardennes) is often way better. Even though, there are obviously a lot of exceptions. - Respect: We have a lot of French students in my town because they can't study what they want in France and we welcome them arms open. There were a lot of guys that had no respect for Belgium, keeping everything close the France, destroying flats and apartments, leaving like a thief with the furniture, a totally disrespectful behaviour that you can also see with the WHV in Australia where a lot of people try to keep their "allocation de chômage" while being abroad and then trying to leave Australia w/o paying their last rents. I met great friends here from France and on my way around the world as well, but there is a bunch of idiots and bastards that blackens the board. - TV: The problem with your TV canals is that they are only giving information about France in the first place. If they cover an event such as any Worldcup, let's say that France won the 3rd place earlier in the day and we have the final. If we watch TF1, right after the final, we will have 5 minutes on the winner and then reports about "the path of Team France", and then "Interview of the whole team", and then "what did the government do to make it work that good". Maaaan, please, we want to know more about the winner. That France-centrist behaviour from your TV canals is really ennoying. You are a larger country than ours so you cover more events but it's disappointed not to have other information than on the French Team. Anyway, all that aside, it creates an idea that French people are only thinking about themselves, are cocky, ... I don't believe that it's true obviously but that's a stereotype that is really hard to combat as we see it on a daily basis.

No i didn't mean you were stupid (if this what you understand). I was only saying that a lot of french people think they are better than belgian. I think this is mostly due to the fact that (like the north of France) you use to have an industrial economy that died creating a lot of poverty. You also have a very different accent and some words that sound funny. And a lot of french people also think that as you have a common border, have 2 different languages in your country and that you look and sound a lot like people from the northern of France, the french part of Belgium should be part of France. They basically think you are not a real country
2019-09-25 11:50

I like how you balanced all of this with good and bad stereotypes. I'm just back from Spain and i agree with you that a lot of french people behave like shit when they are tourists. Spanish people were (most of them) very nice with me when they saw that i tried my best to speak spanish (i only know how to count, order beers and saying "sorry i am french i dont speak spanish").
2019-09-25 11:43
I think it's all about the attitude. I don't mind at all if you don't speak my language or if you're bad at it - it's ok. I will try to understand you and help you out as best as I can... but don't get angry when people don't speak your language. That's just ridiculous.

My stereotypes for french are mostly from media: They tend to live in the past, either with delusions of grandeur or with revolutionary spirit ... be it yellow vests or farmers blocking highways with tractors. Politicians can´t get anything done, because every change brings out the revolutionary in frenchmen. Another stereotype: Many mature women still look good. Like Macrons wife. I have noticed that several times, when I was in Paris. Maybe it´s just the urban women. No french that I have met and talked to were like any stereotypes I can think of

Here banquettes are the only nationality (maybe including Swedes ) that people like them ... the only issue is that you prefer to speak French outside your country. Cheers bro
