Vive la France

A young professional French couple have recently moved into the Village.

A doctor & solicitor.

 

They are extremely nice & personable, and get on with everyone.

 

The woman is very cute, and has a French accent to die for.

 

I am so glad I did French "O" level now, we have reasonable conversations with the couple, though they do take the mick over our accents !

And of course, their English is better than our French.

 

Entente cordiale, there is plenty of that.

They have integrated well.

 

 

 

 A previous girlfriend who did "A" level French, worked as an International Telephonist for British Telecom in London, she loved it.

Her French was very good...

 

I used to say she was an International Call Girl, that didn't go down well.

Re: Viva la France

Keep the "Viva" for when you meet an equally attractive Spanish señor(it)a.  ¡Viva España!

Edit:  ASCII problem solved, it was the computer at work last night that wouldn't cooperate.

Second edit:  Spanish initial upside down exclamation mark inserted.

Re: Viva la France

I find the 'Alt Gr' key comes in handy.

Re: Viva la France

If using Windows (7) one way is to use the 'Character Map';

Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Character Map

Choose your font then find the character you want, then copy/paste.

Re: Viva la France

On the rare occasions I need to use non-English characters I've always just used the Alt key + the numeric key pad, and I usually need to put a 0 (zero) in front of the three digit code, but not here.

Yes, our computer at work has W7, but so did my previous laptop and I had no problems getting those characters on that one with the method described above.

I used the character map on a word document once at work I remember.

Re: Viva la France

It's easy to find the 'Character Map' in Windows 10, simply start typing it's name into the search box and it will show after a few letters.
