Euh, peut être un peu cher ami, je ne saisis pas aussi bien la nuance dans la langue de Shakespeare que dans celle de Molière ... Veuillez accepter mes excuses.

 This shows your poor knowledge of the case, you should read something else than tabloids.

 

Totally agree on the awful Swedish performance though, no excuse for that. We had the best Swedish player of all time in our team, unfortunately he happens to be surrounded by one of the worst Swedish national teams of all time.

 

Zlatan played like shit in this Euro, didn't scored even one goal. Once again he showed he was incapable to be decisive in an important competition, like in Champion's League.

The best thing for PSG this year is that he is leaving.

 

But, let's move on from football and get back to the theme of the challenge! We have seen pictures of some awful things and we hear tantalising rumours from Clags about a certain sweater, let's see them in fits!

Let's get back to it, but probably one of the worst challenge of the year. And throw away your shirt, it makes me sick ! :D

I'm glad you extended this Challenge out to a full fortnight, as I have a very interesting piece back in Melbourne which cost several hundred dollars and which I have worn at most once since buying it about four years ago.

 

It's by no means hideous - it's just - well - strange.

 

I'm back in Melbourne from 7th so I should just about be able to squeak it in with an entry.

Ah, French humour. Always a pleasure.

 

Si vous ne voulez pas le jeu, ne participent pas. C'est très simple.

You probably mean :
Si vous ne voulez pas jouer le jeu, ne participez pas.

 

Otherwise, there is no meaning and spelling mistakes. :D

Except for us Amercian dorks who grew up on Monty Python and Blackadder and learned British vernacular early on! Some of us even managed to hold on to our lunch money at school...

I thought that my little trap might be too obvious, but I trusted that you would step into it anyway and I was right. If you check your comments in English in this thread you will see that there are plenty of grammatical errors. But nobody cares since the forum is full of people who do not have English as their first language, including me. But throw in a few errors in French...

 

Anyhow, enough with the games. I obviously made a mistake by making a humorous reference to football in my introduction, especially since I was referencing a team that happens to play against France. But this is a challenge and it's gone far enough off topic already. If you want to continue to talk about football, or french, do it in other threads or message me directly. I started this challenge, like it or not, and I want to keep it focused.

I don't think it was a trap at all. I think you are too arrogant to admit your own mistakes.


You are so pretentious that you wanted to show that you speak French. It was missed. End of.

A couple of years ago. One of the world cups. My father and his friend were watching Germany play Italy at a British pub in the US. My dad has a PhD in German literature and is fluent in the language. His friend was an Italian history professor, fluent in Italian (these days he spends a funded three months out of the year in Venice, the lucky bastard). They also were passable in each of the other languages.

So after a few drinks, they start trash talking each other, my dad in German and his friend in Italian. Meanwhile, onlookers were very confused, watching two Americans talk shit in German and Italian while drinking ale in a British pub.

Football. The world sport.

Oh please....there are plenty of English teachers online as well...just allow auto spell to put in a "your" instead of "you're" and see how many vitriolic comments you get....and how many people bother to search someone's past posts for errors?

In general I agree, but in SF as well? In the threads I follow (mainly WAYWRN) I haven't seen any language police at all, on the contrary I have seen several posts encouraging non native English speakers to keep posting and not worry about the language. But there are plenty of threads in SF that I never follow so I could be wrong.

We Americans were cheering for Iceland too.


Especially after they beat the English :)

 

These players never get any rest, between the Eurocopa, the Copa America and the club season.
