Have you ever dreamt about a super desperate situation? Like, you can't run, you're trapped in a speeding car, or you just landed in a french speaking country, and your only french speaker friend is gone missing, you're on your own. All you remember is "oui oui, ca va", you're not going to get far. Given that over 65% of the French population does not speak a second language frequently, maybe you should learn french to avoid relying on others. There's many benefits about speaking french.

[...] Age Age In English and Dutch, when you want to give your age, you use the verb In French, you'll say have 20 years old?. Example: Bonjour, mon nom est Emilie, j'ai 21 ans?. An(s) Year(s) In French, we just use to say year and to say years. We don't use another word like in Dutch and English. S'appeler To be named It's the other way to introduce yourself, you can say my name is m'appelle Emilie? Instead of saying am John? you can say name is John?. [...]

The sound is always short when you're talking about days. MARDI TUESDAY Do not forget what I said about the letter pronunciation is important. If you do not say the letter right, you'll always make the mistake. [...]

Trois The is silent Quatre The is pronounced like If you really want to speak properly, don't forget the at the end, even though most French speakers will drop it. Cinq The almost sounds like Six The is pronounced as an so it's Sept The is silent, so just say it like Huit The is silent here, so it sounds like If you pronounce it the right way, it will actually sound like you're starting to whistle. [...]

[...] Depending on your accent, the letter sounds similar. is pretty similar in both languages, except our is a little shorter. Fun fact: This letter is used to shorten the word pronounced the same way, which means is a really hard sound. The English as we learn it sounds more like a You'll have to pull the Spanish out of you to pronounce this right, but do not roll your tongue, the sound of the is right in the middle.
