French Speaking people – Society & CultureReport
Can someone who is from France speak the eqivalent of quince English (very posh French) in French but not sound posh when they speak English with a heavy French accent?
Even if you don’t understand French, would you not be able to detect a posh French person when they speak English? Or would they just sound normal?
Posh, no I don’t think so. My husband is bilingual (he was raised in Quebec, mother from Belgium), I speak french as well, talk every day to french people, in french and in english, replying in french sometimes. I don’t notice any difference, possibly because I am not looking for it.
Quйbйcois is different from european french because it is, for lack of a better expression, quicker, a lot left out. European french is very proper, same as very proper english.
Funny question. Why ? I am curious.
