We do learn English but people just don't care and don't realize how important english is
Name one player unable to speak english
I'm sure that if we take proportions into account there is a higher percentage of english speakers in france than in hungary
All they do is smoke inside, eat baguette, lose majors and drive like shit
More like they can speak English they dont want though
Their country is so wide and they have no tourist in most of the land, they don't need to speak English so your forget quite fast
Stupid government teach us english to late in our scholarship so the most of french speak like shits and that's normal we begin to learn english when we are 10 11 years old unlike most of other countries
Nbk speaks better and proper english than some NA players
Many do speak English but lack confidence to do so.
Also, French is an historical language, it used to be important worldwide and many parts of the world speak French so not everyone realize how important it is to speak English nowadays (it's changing quickly tho). And all the cultural material is translated to French so kids are not very exposed to English unfortunately.
But the vast majority of French do speak English nowadays. At least we're much better than most Southern Europe country. Spanish and Italians are way worse than us.
beacuse they think that french is better but in reality they are completely wrong
1. The way we learn English isn't the best (same with the other foreign languages)
2. Not accessible for everyone (school travel abroad for instance or summer camps linguistic holidays etc)
3. Media in French dominates, you'd have to get out of your way to check foreign ones, although Netflix, gaming, and the internet in general have been helping a lot, so for the new generation it's getting better.
I speak 4 languages (but I'm in the minority) and live abroad in the Netherlands, I can see why the Dutch for instance speak 2-3 languages on average, you can speak English to anyone in Netherlands and they'll be able to answer.
It's not just english, we suck at foreign languages in general
Problem is that absolutely everything is translated in french, so you never need english in your daily life if you don't want to use it
This should change with this upcoming generation, internet and all that stuff but otherwise, we only have to speak it at school during english lessons, which is a problem imo
no need to learn english if french dominates again in the future :)
We have stupid teachers at 99% of the time
I'm fluent because I learned all by myself but French never helped me about it
I've never run into French people that couldn't speak English, the German's seem to be the best at speaking it though when I've met them always have a good game when there are Germans in the server that actually use a mic, Russians are probably the worst even at making an effort to do so like I'm fine with people not being the best at speaking english and maybe cutting down what they say in english to like basic calls but when you've got a cunt screaming in Russia as tends to be the case it's like fuck this mute, if you're in a game with a friend speaking the same language use team speak or discord like everyone else
For me there are two reasons.
The way we are taught english. We have an average of one and a half to two hours of english weekly. 85% of our tests are written tests so oral communication is neglected sadly. If you practice oral communication for 5 to 10 minutes i class each week, which is a lot considering we are like 30 or more students per class, you can estimate yourself happy. So you have to practice your oral communication by yourself. Thank God video games exist !
And french mentality, which is shit ! French students will not study/practice something because they dont like it or because they think it is useless. In the best case they will do the bare minimum to have a good grade..
For instance, as oral communication is neglected, some teachers advice students to watch their favorite series or movies in english but none of them do it because it is "useless".
because they dont need to work in a foreign country
French players can speak English xD
they think that they are alpha nation and they don't need english, pathetic
Why would we? French is the most beautiful language in the world ! (:
i can and i kinda regret , here we are
It is true, our education system is mediocre, here if you want to really learn english you either have to : watch tv shows, movies, or play a game that is played by lots of international players and you have to speak english.
Also, being on websites like this really helps (or reddit, etc.)
But yeah young people (even today) are really bad and often don't see the interest of speaking it, while it is actually important if you want to study in engineering, economics or whatever.
France education OMEGALUL
Because we don't really need to learn. French is a very spoken language and a lot of things in France are translated (films, books, etc). As i experienced both sweden and france, sweden translate way less things into swedish and learning english feels more like a true need while in france we don't really care because we don't have to use it at all if we don't want to.
We cant speak english, but words like nice, insane and many more are part of most (young) people basic vocabulary.
They (young people) like to make sentences 80/90% french and teh rest english inserting words like the ones is said before because they lack the french vocabulary to express themselves thanks to the "americanization" of the world. pretty sad and pathetic imo.
Pls learn how to speak both languages and stop mixing words, you re not cool.(to french people)
"The state of my country
I am a 20 year old man living in France and I've recently begun to witness its terrible state.
I live in a flat with my roommate and friend who is very much like me. We live in Lyon which is the 2nd biggest city in France and the suburb where our flat is is filled with Arabs and blacks, as is the majority of the whole city. This is even worse in the district next to ours where it's almost a ghetto. Drug trafficking is rampant in those areas, insecurity is unbearable at times because Arabs are so aggressive. I don't usually take the bus but when I do I have to witness incivilities on a constant basis : Arabs, or sometimes blacks, screaming, fumbling, speaking their weird-ass dialect which involves constant swearing in Arab. Sometimes they outright insult people or act threatening towards them ; the other day I saw a tall, threatening, criminal-looking Arab saying and I quote "you filthy little whore" to a random woman in the bus who didn't preemptively pickup the man's lighter which he threw across the bus. No one does anything, even the victim, and I am ashamed to say I didn't either because I'd rather not die.
There are pockets in France like Seine-Saint-Denis where Arabs are ethnically and culturally homogeneous and are semi-autonomous. Even the police dares not venture into those areas. Recently a lesbian called Mila told Arabs to fuck off after they made moves on her while she was streaming on twitch, and after those Arabs told stuff like "Allah will punish you" she answered "I don't like Islam, your shit religion is a religion of hate". She received death threats, insults ; the first Imam of France even said that "she asked for it" before presenting excuses! And the government did almost nothing, stayed silent on the matter and only granted her police protection after she was physically threatened. Now she can't go to school anymore because she's not safe. Worst of all, the regional government even launched an inquiry about her on counts of hate speech!
I study psychology and cognitive sciences in a university after having done two years in computer science which I didn't really like anymore. The university is a factory for leftists where common sense is banned and feminism / lgbtqism is propagandized. Some (few, but still) teachers even take part on a daily basis in spreading their political opinion. A majority of my fellow students (who are women btw) are completely brainwashed by the media : "Arabs are not all like that", "women are not equal to men", "society is a patriarchy", "why can't we accept other genders". Even saying women are more emotional grants me the label of mysoginistic. Recently the executives of the university had to enforce inclusive speech because the all-powerful students associations pushed for it! And you could say well that's just your leftist shithole. Except that a majority of young people are also brainwashed. My sister is like that, the girl I'm seeing is like that, some of my (male!) friends are like that even though men tend to be much less brainwashed. My roommate's two sisters once told him "how can you think like that in 2019" when he said he was against homosexual wedding and immigration. Honestly what does that even mean. Older people are usually the most lucid about the situation.
Few intellectuals dare even say stuff like that, there is a real soft censorship in this country. The overwhelming majority of the media completely ignores such problems and sometimes outright lies. How can they speak the truth since they are all possessed by cosmopolitan oligarchs ? The few journalists and intellectuals who dare talk about those problems (immigration, feminization, death of national identity) are ostracized, excluded from medias, called names, etc. The elections are a joke meant to put neoliberal parasites like Macron in power."
shit school system. I actually have a pretty good english for a french, but my accent sucks lol
But world should stop to blame us. I'm fed up of the players saying baguette everytime I'm playing csgo lol
Tahats more than 1000 years that we sincerely hate the brits...
So why would we learn their langage ?
