Je voyage à Londres

A l’aeroport, un homme rencontre une femme en attendant son vol. Il est grand et il a la peau fonce (dark skinned). La femme est grande et elle a les cheveux longs.

Julius: Bonjour. Je m’appelle Julius. Et vous?

Anna: Je m’appelle Anna. Vous êtes canadien?

Julius: Non, je suis australien mais je travaille au Canada. Et vous, vous êtes de quelle nationalité ?

Anna : Moi, je suis canadienne et j’habite au Canada

In the French language, gender plays a huge role in identifying people. Unlike in English, you have the French form for masculine nationality and feminine nationality. You would say canadien for a male and canadienne for a female, for example.

Jules : Oh, où voyagez-vous ?

Anna : Je voyage à Londres pour une conférence. Je suis journaliste et je represente mon magazine. Vous aussi, vous allez à Londres ?

French words are quite similar to English words. This is partly because a percentage of English words were gotten from French. You must however be very conscious when pronouncing as they are not the same.

Jules : Oui, mon frère vit à Londres. Son anniversaire est demain. C’est une surprise, ma visite.

Anna : Oh la la! C’est très sympa. Où habite….

Le haut-parleur : Les passagers du vol Air France 314 à destination de Londres sont invités à se présenter porte 15.

Jules : C’est notre avion. Allons-y !
