|Re: Dealing with francophones in Canada |
I backpacked solo in Europe for a summer, and Japan for a month. I'm well versed in the best language ever - pantomime.
I got through france with barely knowing more than:
merci (thank you)
bonjour (good day)
bonswa (sp) (good something else)
si vous plait (sp) (please)
je voudrais (i want...) (usually accompanied by a finger pointing at a croissant or menu item, and followed by svp)
i also knew how to say "how much is..", "train", "is there a room?" and a few other useful words/terms, but have forgotten those.
japan was even more fun, because you can't use knowledge of Latin root words to help you decipher stuff there.
