I'm glad you enjoyed the movie marathon. Now I know which film I have to watch.

tout le monde!!!

OK. here is a tough one!! In my French class I have to talk about the riots in France... and this is really hard for me to do in French

So I've managed to come up with some stuff, but I can't figure out how to say the following:

" as culturalization advances in Western societies, these kind of incidents will tend to increase ".

Any volunteers ???? Merciiiiiiiiii!!! Believe it or not, I am actually learning a tone of French this semester!

Here you go :

Alors que l'acculturation a progressé dans les sociétés occidentales, ce genre d'incident tend à augmenter.

Or another translation possible :

Alors que les cultures se cotoyent de plus en plus dans les sociétés occidentales, ce genre d'incident tend à se multiplier.

You're awesome I truly appreciate your help. French is tough, but little by little I'm getting there. Vous êtes super, merci

You know, I thought about saying this: ce genre d'incident but I thought it was a literal translation of "gender" (as an male or female in English), so I though it would be wrong. But now that I see you using it as a native speaker I see it's the right thing to say. I am definitively not forgetting this one! Thanks!

nah, we translate "gender" by genre, or by type but the latter is too familiar for a school work
but Nico made a mistake: it is "ce genre d'incidents", in plural. Exactly as in English. Might not be important if you do only an oral presentation, but if you have to hand your paper to the teacher then....

As a matter of fact I am about to submit my paper, so I was able to correct it. It's not a big mistake (I could see myself saying it in Spanish). But I did correct it.

Thakn you Damita ...thank you Nico again..

No, you're doing well. Sometimes i "invent" words in English too. Yesterday i commented on Nicki's blog and almost wrote "torturate" instead of "torture"
quelquefois, c'est très difficile comme il y a des mots français qui sont voisins des mots anglais et si j'apprends les deux langues, je confondrai les mots
mais je suis soulagée que ce n'est pas seulement moi

Well, i'm going to see it later this afternoon.

Joyeux Noël's Oficial Site

There is an English version but if you want to see the videos (in the characters presentation and the video section) you need to see the other version of the site because it's already out here whereas it will only come out later in other countries so they had to do this part first (many of the vids are dubbed in Fr...).

The recent reviews have been less good now. Many accuse the movie of being what many feared it would be: too sirupy, a bit oversimplyfying, too much trying to seduce the 'mass', emphatic music, emphatic performances, not criticizing enough, too PC, not intellectual enough, too much trying to be 'Hollywood'like, lacks subtelty, academical, even 'tool for European propaganda' etc...

Surprisingly that are the English speaking press (Variety, Hollywood Reporter etc...) which adores the movie whereas here they criticize it a lot and are very disapointed such a good subject was 'wasted' ( harsh...).

Usually i hate those kind of movies so i hope they're exagerating.

My best friend saw it and she liked it, except when the character of Diane Kruger sings. Cuz it wasn't her singing of course, and she said it's too obvious. But she liked the rest. She usually hates all French movies, whatever kind of movies they are...
So tell us what you think of it. I'll probably won't have the time to see it but...

Hi Everybody! Talking about movies, have you guys seen "L'auberge Espangnol", C'est un film très amusant!!

I have just finished writing about a movie in French, and I've done alright, but there is a couple of things I can't put together. Hmmm.. let's see:

1- "After a short time they realize they are in love with each other". In French I'd say something like this: Mais après d’un court temps ils découvrent que ils sont amoureux. Am I way off ???

2- "There is a lot of people in New York that get married for convenience". Can i say : Vraiment à New York il y a beaucoup de gens qui sont mariés pour la convenance.

By the way, I am talking about the movie Green Card with Gérard Departieu. It's really funny!!

Thank you as always !! I'm doing great so far... straight A's !!!

Après quelques temps ils réalisent qu'ils sont amoureux (l'un de lautre) (l'un de l'autre= with each other, you can forget it if you want)

oh i remember the movie. Convenience means: because it is handy for them to marry, right? then you can say: Il y a beaucoup de personnes à New York qui se marient par commodité. or: ... qui se marient par intérêt
"par commodité" refers to the fact that it is very handy for them to marry (in this case: for him to get the green card, and for her to keep her apartment...
"par intérêt" can mean the same, but it can also imply that one has married the other for his/her money. So i think it might be ambiguous to say "par intérêt" if you don't precise what is the interest for them to get married.

Thank you Damita, you truly are awsome!

I am not sure "convenience marriage" was actually the right term to use, because I was translating from Spanish (Matrimonio de Conveniencia). In English they usually say "fake marriage", or "fixed marriage". It basically means a foreigner marries a citizen in exchange for residenship (for the foreigner) and money, lot's and lot's of money for the citizen.

C'est tout! Bye! Thank's again!

The french expression for these kind of marriage is : Mariage blanc

So your sentence in french will be : Il y a beaucoup de personnes à New York qui font des mariages blancs.
