Why can't you speak English? A lot of french players know 0 English. How is that possible? Don't you learn language in school? Or just for your own good to watch videos, shows in English.

I know, but still : "A lot of french players know 0 English. How is that possible? Don't you learn language in school? Or just for your own good to watch videos, shows in English." > you are we pros ? no, so i guess we can speak about the french education at this moment. Don't need to be an ass btw ;)
2020-02-27 20:11
We are not pro, yet we are still players, past or present. I didn't ask him about pro players but players. They chose to name pro players, not me. Please read carefully post you are answering to if you want to play the semantic card.
2020-02-27 20:14
Well if you want to stay in the "THREAD SUBJECT" and refuse to speak about other things that are still related and interesting to debate, its your choice. Whats wrong with you being an ass btw ? are you angry today ?

We can discuss about the growing speed of lily, after all is related more or less don't you think?

While the fleur-de-lis has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries, it is particularly associated with the French monarchy in a historical context and continues to appear in the arms of the King of Spain (from the French House of Bourbon), the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and members of the House of Bourbon. It remains an enduring symbol of France which appears on French postage stamps, although it has never been adopted officially by any of the French republics. According to French historian Georges Duby, the three petals represent the three medieval social estates: the commoners, the nobility, and the clergy.
2020-02-27 20:24
What do you think about learning languages in our educational system ?
2020-02-27 20:26
It is good for writing, garbage for speaking. Yet you did not answer about the growing rate of lilly. Are you an ass?
2020-02-27 20:42

Between the USA, Switzerland and the UK we have 4 universities in the top 10 universities in the world. US having 5 and Switzerland having 1. If you want to talk about language. 9 universities in the top 10 are english speaking countries. Your example is bad and sounds pretty jealous. But it's ok. If you're intelligent enough you can come to one of our universities. :) Cry is free

He's talking about intelligence and you're talking about top universities in the world (that can be attended by anyone smart enough regardless of their nationality). I'm obviously not saying that he's right and British people are dumb but top universities have nothing to do with average intelligence of a country's population considering that maybe like what, 0.1% of British population attend these universities?

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
2020-02-27 12:07
France OtelloO 
"No tourist in most of the land" whaaaat? Paris got most of tourists, that's expectable, but we have many regions crowded with tourists all year long (like Lourdes for religious pilgrimage, Cote d'Azur, Loire castles, Strasbourg Christmas market, ski stations in the Alps and Pyrenees). Also in some regions like Normandy or the south west we have a strong population of English retired people. They sell everything in England to buy a house in the French country side. In some villages there's more British than French. But most of them even after years living here are totally unable to speak French it's ridiculous. I speak decent English thanks to my studies abroad but don't do any efforts with these guys who spent 10 years in France and can barely say bonjour. On the other hand if a nice Indian couple is looking for Lourdes direction I'll be glad to give them all the indications needed.
2020-02-27 13:46
Greece Graecos 
Well, I never really noticed there were many tourists in the lands, I might be wrong. I've been several times in the North (Normandie, Bretagne, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, ...) during the summer and I have no memories seeing them, nor the English old people that haven't learnt French. But as I said, it was only for the holiday and as we speak French, we are taken for French (kinda, because you understand that our accent sounds usually a bit weird to you all ^^)

2020-02-27 12:14
+1 in belgium, plus I think its because french is a roman language & english a germanic that makes it harder for you guys to understand, the border of germanic/roman language is literally the walloon/flanders border in belgium, that explains why walloons speak french & flanders speaks dutch & why flanders side speaks more english than walloon side, its literally because of how the roman empire was formed & why the languages are so different

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
2020-02-27 13:35
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.
2020-02-27 13:43
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

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
2020-02-27 14:18
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".
2020-02-27 14:21
France OtelloO 
I have to disagree with you, in recent years we've seen in France a new generation of english speaking people. A majority of young people now watch foreign TV series and movies in original language with subtitles (Netflix helped a lot in this way). Step by step we're building a new generation of english speakers, saying that all french are stupidly bad at english isn't true anymore. The main reason we we're late in english learning compared to other nations is diplomatic. France always saw England (and its emanations like US) as culturally inferior and as a threat to our specificity. Thus we developped a "everything has to be french" policy. Also French was the main diplomatic language in the world for centuries (and it's still the case in some institutions) so we always had this posture of being the legitimate one. You can take the problem the other way around. What rate of english population is speaking a foreign language properly? My sister is a teacher in London and only the foreigners or people from foreign origins are speaking other language than english.

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.
2020-02-27 19:28
France agea 
It's not even that students don't see the interest of speaking it, they just don't want to practice because they fear that they would be laughed at if they don't pronounce it right/or even dumber if they make too much effort to pronounce it right. I used to be a teacher and it really saddens me to see pupils faking to have an interest for foreign languages because they fear to be kind of bullied afterwards...

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.

"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."
