Longs temps non parle! (I made that up - so it's probably wrong).

Today in school we had a test and it was this phrase, "J'en Ai Marre" which I couldn't remember. It's a shame I didn't see it in the RSS feed!

Hi there Sam,
In French you might say:

"Ça fait longtemps qu'on ne s'est pas vu"

or just

"Ça fait longtemps"

Samuel S said...

I was close then. ;)

Merci pour t'aide ! (That was also a guess)


Rémy said...

"Merci pour ton aide"


Samuel S said...

I actually put that to begin with but changed it. I thought hmmm it's got an "e" so maybe it is feminine therefore it needs to be "ta" so "ta aide". But then I thought two vowels contract so t'aide.

Is it just generally spelt with an -e?

Donc, merci pour ton aide.

Il est tard ici, donc maintenant je vais aller au lit.

A bientôt,

Hi Rémy,this is my question:

why she uses "J'en ris" ?

I would say "Je ris".


Rémy said...


L'aide is feminine (La aide)

Rémy said...


"je ris" means "I laugh, I'm laughing"

"J'en ris" means "I laugh from it", "it makes me laugh"

[French doesn't have the English "it" per say]

ha ha...a pole! It would add an element of honesty to the "performance" and eliminate the embarrassment of humping air

sorry...I'm bored. I'll get back to my studies now : )

Hi Remy!

I'm brazilian and I'm trying to learn a little of your cool language.
Thank you for the lessons and congratulations.

Rummy said...

Hi Remy--
I'm really enjoying your lessons on youtube, so thanks for making them entertaining and manageable. I don't know if you subtitled the soundtrack of "J'en Ai Marre," but if so-- could the text be changed to yellow with a black outline. It's hard to read most of the colors without focusing so much that I'm not listening to the pronunciation as well.
If not, no worries.

Rummy said...

Oh, I forgot to P.S. the following: Have you caught Eddie Izzard's stand up in French? If so, I'd be curious to hear your impression of it since I don't, as yet, understand French (although I love him in English!) Also, are there any genuinely French stand-up comics that I can look up?

Rémy said...

Sorry Rummy,

I'm not responsible for the subtitles on this video :(

Rémy said...

I'm a big fan of Eddy Izzard but I've never seen his act in French.
Plenty of French stand-up comics but as I've not lived in France for over 20 years I'd be hard pressed to recommend one in particular.

Coluche was one of the best.

Adam said...

agreed with anonymous, she needs a pole

lets get F. Cabrel on here instead

Adam said...

on side note, this could be great for your students pronunciation, Remy

Well, i think she's a cute little girl, she looks just like my daughter, except this Alizee' hair is short, my daughter has really long hair, other then that they could be sisters. She's young, let her enjoy herself people, life is short for jealousy. sf
