French in Quebec vs France: interview en français with subtitles (accent, attitude, history, curses)

French in Quebec vs France: interview en français with subtitles (accent, attitude, history, curses)

How does Quebec French work? I sat down with my friend Geneviève from Montréal, Canada and interviewed her en français to understand the history. We even talked about curse words (safe for work/children, since Quebec French uses religious words as curses) *** IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a mistake in the video suggesting that only Quebec speak French in Canada. But this forgets Nouveau Brunswick. Also, Parisians are NOT representative of the French in general. All comments for this video will be pending. Please keep politics off the channel, and any hateful comments will not be approved. *** Blog post with more background: http://fi3m.com/quebecois Geneviève and I were speaking in French during her visit in Amsterdam (I'm Irish by the way), so I decided to sit down with her and talk with her about some differences and history behind Quebec French. We both agreed that there are some major problems in speaking with French people (although this was only my experience in Paris; the rest of France were much nicer to me), and she shared some of her other thoughts on travelling in Europe. I hope you enjoy the interview; it's been four years since I lived among Francophones, so hopefully my level of French hasn't gone down *too* much! It's with the help of Couchsurfing guests like Geneviève that I've maintained a workable level of French all these years --------- You can be confident at speaking any language in weeks instead of years.

How to Pronounce Irish Names 🗣️👂🇮🇪☘️ (and other Irish words): A quick guide

How to Pronounce Irish Names 🗣️👂🇮🇪☘️ (and other Irish words): A quick guide

Seán, Niamh, Ciara, Oisín, Cathal... can you say these right? Maybe this video will help! It can seem daunting to meet someone whose name you've seen written down, but have no idea how its pronounced & this is especially true with Irish people. This is because a lot of our names are based on Irish orthography (spelling & pronunciation rules). Having a full understanding of this can take some getting used to, so instead of giving a thorough lesson, I decided to simplify things and give the most practical tips that work the majority of the time. I realize that I had to generalize and there are a few exceptions, but what I covered in this video will genuinely help you the vast majority of the time :) (I also referred to lenition, implying that it only happens with the letter 'h', but this ignores when it happens with a 't' at the start of words. I didn't bring that up in this video because making notes of all the little things like that would have made this much longer and the remaining rules don't apply as much to names) I hope I show in this video that it's really not that bad - Irish spelling is very consistent actually, especially when compared to English. If you keep the rules of thumb from the video in mind, you should find it much easier, whether you have Irish friends, or are learning the Irish language :) To prove the point, here is the video I mentioned near the end, where I read a ridiculous poem in English: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-JDu3o7Cyw Otherwise, I referenced some other links, so be sure to check out my page on Irish resources here: https://www.fluentin3months.com/irish-learning-resources/ And here is a playlist of videos about learning Irish and videos that I've made IN Irish (with subtitles): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSQr1fqNSIPJcNw0OwoTZwn9_tf9VtafW Since a few people were asking, here's a link to the background music: https://audiojungle.net/item/long-way-from-home/20608935?ref=irishpolyglot I expect nitpicking in the comments because of things that aren't perfect (not possible to be thorough in a short video), but I hope some of you get genuine use out of this!!

Skype Me Maybe - sung in 30+ languages by 17 polyglots!

Skype Me Maybe - sung in 30+ languages by 17 polyglots!

What if Carly Rae Jepsen's music video "Call me maybe", was about making international multilingual friends? See here... To answer this question, I worked very hard to completely change the lyrics of her original song and worked with the language learning community to get it translated to over 30 languages! As you can see, I managed to convince some of Youtube's best-known polyglots to join me and sing this! Make sure to check out their channels - each of which is clickable through their name in the top-left, or their thumbnail at the end. http://www.fluentin3months.com/skype For more info on how this video came about and about each of the contributors, check out the blog post! If you liked this video, please don't forget to share it on FACEBOOK with your friends (just copy and paste the youtube web address from your browser to your Facebook status, or click the Facebook icon under Share here on Youtube), and click the Thumbs up icon! While the video has subtitles printed into it, you can also activate them in OTHER languages on Youtube! If your language is missing, send me a translation! (More info in the blog post) This way it will be understandable to the entire world, as a language learning video should be :) I welcome any language (or dialect) that hasn't been included already, if you are willing to do the translation! Also, if you are learning that language, please activate its subtitles and try to read along ;) Big thanks to Susanna and Steve for helping me with the initial lyrics, and for Luca and Mae for helping me with my Italian/German bit, and Julianna for the ASL tip. Also, thanks to Couchsurfing Belo Horizonte for helping me with a fun final scene! And of course thanks to all the contributors, who I discuss in detail in the link above. The instrumental music used is by "Hits Now", but of course Carly Rae Jepsen owns the rights to the music and original lyrics. This video is not monetized to respect the artist (it's main purpose is to promote language learning and other language learning Youtube channels). Go buy her excellent songs to support her! ------- You can be confident at speaking any language in weeks instead of years.

The secret to learning another language quickly: Speak from day 1

The secret to learning another language quickly: Speak from day 1

A multilingual presentation of the "Speak from day 1" package, which explains everything I know about learning another language quickly: Speak it from day 1. This package has been upgraded since I recorded this video and is now a part of my FI3M Premium package here: http://fi3mplus.com/premium Sales of this package help me to blog and make all my other videos for free. While this is a pitch for the product, you absolutely do not need to buy it to learn another language; only if you are curious about the details of how I do it. Please take heed of the message of the video: speaking the language is the secret, not anything you might buy. No matter what, get out there and speak the language with people!

Tim Ferriss on language learning: Interview with Benny of Fluent in 3 months

Tim Ferriss on language learning: Interview with Benny of Fluent in 3 months

http://www.fluentin3months.com/4-hour/ Go to this blog post for a quick intro about Tim, and a full transcript of this entire interview. Otherwise, you can activate captions (in English) here on Youtube. In this video I talked to Tim Ferriss of Four Hour Workweek fame, all about language learning. It was a great chance to see what we had in common, understand his background and motivation for getting into languages, and learn more about his strategies, as well as a fun sidebar where I try to persuade him the Irish language isn't that bad. Sorry for the bad video quality, and only half my face coming through at times. As mentioned briefly, I have ten copies of Tim's book I can give away to those with a US address (actually, his agent is letting me, I won't be mailing them to you from Brazil :) ). Thumb up this video and then leave your comment here about the most valuable experience YOU have had from speaking another language, even if it's been from the basics. You might want to leave it on the blog post (link above) for more of a character limit than Youtube allows. I'll pick my favourite ten ones and request your US postal address on Monday. Thanks! More details on his book, which is entirely about rapid learning in general, while using lots of examples from cooking, can be found here: http://fourhourchef.com/ You can be confident at speaking any language in weeks instead of years.
