It would be good if we could leave our baggage from the past outside the door.FrenchForumSurvivor wrote: ↑Thu Sep 10, 2020 5:20 pmHe doesn't know him personally, it's baggage from elsewhere.curtis wrote: ↑Thu Sep 10, 2020 5:05 pmI assume from your post that you know BE personally ?Omegal wrote: ↑Thu Sep 10, 2020 4:39 pm
BE never could but always thought he would just back off as he hadn't got a clue as to how to respond to something he said that was so dumb. Truth is he never learned any French in all the years he spent in total here, well apart from ordering a beer or pizza, so he never really knew how France was run anyway. Naturally in cases like that, BE just made things up and therefore could never back up his words.
I suspect not( but please prove me wrong).
On n'avance pas le Schimilblick with comments like that. Just my 2c.
It would also be good to remember that this is the new French forum and not the new French speakers forum. A point I am acutely sensitive to. OH had no opportunity to learn a foreign language at school. Now very deaf ( I refrain from profoundly deaf but she cannot be far off) it is a struggle to assimilate the language. Would her views not count equally to other even if we disagree?
It is a pity that BE has decided not to defend his assertion, but that does not in itself invalidate the assertion.
