You know that thing that say about not taking yourself too seriously when learning a language, I think I fully comprehend it today. I just downloaded memrize and I'm learning the basic words in French for a start. This is what I've learned so far;
Hi- Salut(Pronounced 'saluu')
What's up- quoi de neuf(literal translation is 'what of new') still learning how to pronounce this.
Allons-y!- Let's go(pronounced Alunsiii)(literal translation is 'we-go-there)
Santé!- Bottoms up!(pronounced 'sontay') (literal translation is 'Health')
Oui- Yes (pronounced as 'we')
Non- No (still practicing pronunciation)
S'il vous plaît- Please ( I'm here wondering why such a short word deserves such long translation in French)
Merci- Thank you (I noticed there's a guttural sound to it when pronouncing this)
Bonjour- Good morning or good day.
Bonne nuit- goodnight (pronounced bon nuwit)
I think that's enough for today. I'll just go ahead and keep repeating these words.
