    French Practice

    I joined a french pivot forum, inspiring me to learn more french than I do now. They DO speak SOME english there, but not well, and I don't speak well french either. And so, I will post my progress of the language here.

    I know all of the colors, but I don't completely memorize them.

    Colors=Coluers:
    Rouge=Red
    Nior=Black
    Vert=Green
    Bleu=Blue
    Gris=Gray
    Jaune=Yellow
    Rose=Pink
    Brown=Brun

    I do have some trouble with pronunciations, but I'll try my best to write them out.

    Rouge[Rooj]
    Nior[Nuor]
    Vert[Varte]
    Bleu[Bleaoo]
    Gris[Grees]
    Jaune[Jwon]
    Rose[Ross-Eh]
    Brun[Bron]

    Fruits:
    Banane=Banana
    Pomme=Apple
    Tomate=Tomato

    Banane[Be-ne-nay]
    Pomme[Pom]
    Tomate[Toe-Mot-Tey]

    Greetings=Salutations:
    Bonjour=Hello
    Au Revoir=Goodbye

    Bonjour[Bon-Joor]
    Au Revoir[Aw-Rev-ee-ore]

    Other:
    Envoy=Submit
    Mai=May
    Julian=July
    Angelias=English

    Envoy[En-Voai]
    Mai[Mey]
    Julian[Joo-Lan]
    Angelias[On-Joo-Leas]

    ---
    This is what I know so far, and I am sure to learn more soon.
    MY NAME IS BK!! STOP CALLING ME WISH

    That stuff really isn't helpful. You'd be better off learning grammar first. Simple verbs plus basic stuff like how to form questions would be better in my opinion. Vocabulary is one of the last things you really need to worry about when learning a language, it kind of comes along with the other stuff.

    Like, if you want to ask someone for a .stk...how would you do that? Knowing a thousand different color names wouldn't help you there :P

    I took three years of French Immersion. One of our teachers was a noob and didn't teach us how to conjugate in certain tenses so when I speak it it sounds like this: be I going to store. I can understand it most of the time though, even though im super rusty.

    Some of your pronunciations are off, at least in Acadian french, which is what I know.

    My version in bold
    Rouge[Rooj]
    Nior[No-wa]
    Vert[Varte]
    Bleu[Bleaoo]
    Gris[Greee]
    Jaune[Jown]
    Rose[Rose]
    Brun[Brun]

    Fruits: Frew-eee
    Banane=Banana
    Pomme=Apple
    Tomate=Tomato

    Banane[Beh-nan]
    Pomme[Pom]
    Tomate[Toe-Mat] the e on the end only sounds like Eh if there is an accent

    Greetings=Salutations:
    Bonjour=Hello
    Au Revoir=Goodbye

    Bonjour[Bon-Joor]
    Au Revoir[Oh Revwah] the r isn't pronouced, so its like v-wah. Noir was the same way.

    Other:
    Envoy=Submit
    Mai=May
    Julian=July
    Angelias=English

    Envoy[En-Voai]
    Mai[Mey]

    First french sentence I ever learned was:
    Voulez-vous coucher (sp?) avec moi?

    Anyway, isn't july 'juillet'?
    That's a nice list you have there, but it IS very basic.
