Why do you use an before X?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The use of "an" before a word starting with the letter X is determined by the sound that follows it. If the word starts with a vowel sound, like in "an umbrella," "an" is used. So, it's based on pronunciation rather than just the letter itself.

What do you call the traditional long skinny loaf of bread served in France?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

la baguette ("the stick") is the best-known loaf of French bread. It is expected to weigh 250 grams, and to have a nice crust. Bread is called 'pain' in French and has to be made only of flour, water, a pinch of salt and a pinch of yeast, but no more. Every variety of bread with added fat or preservatives, are called with a (slightly) different name, and are often disregarded by French people.

What French food is served in French schools?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

In general the French are not great eaters of breakfast. Traditionally bread with butter and confiture (jam or Jelly) and coffee has been the normal fare. However in the last fifty years the French breakfast has been changing particularly for children. In the 1960's the French dairy industry encouraged the consumption of dairy products notably yoghourts flavoured and non- flavoured and this has become a common product for children to eat at breakfast. Bread and confiture is still a staple and many households buy tartines or toasts (essentially a dried bread rusk) to eat at breakfast. Except in towns and larger villages it is often too far to go to collect fresh bread from the baker. The baker often delivers fresh bread to the household or to a depot de pain later in the day. The French now consume the breakfast cereals that are familiar in the USA and the UK but they tend to be regarded as food principally for children and are not much eaten by adults. Some children particularly if they walk to school in town may supplement their breakfast with a croissant, chocolate croissant or raisin pastry ( pain au raisin) bought from a bakers shop on the way to school.

Children also consume pretty milky coffee and increasingly I think flavoured milk drinks with their breakfast.

How do you spell doesn't in french?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

she doesn't = elle ne fait pas.

"do" has a wide range of usages in English and French people would use the verb following "do" to speak with more accuracy:

she doesn't go to the movie = elle ne VA pas au cinéma,

she doesn't like horses = elle n'aime pas les chevaux,

he doesn't cook well = il ne cuisine pas bien.

There is no exact translation of 'doesn't' into French. Doesn't (does not) is an auxiliary verb construction used to negatea verb. If we look at the imaginary verb "foo" :-

English He doesn't "foo". He didn't "foo". He won't "foo". (won't = will not)

French Il ne "foo" pas. Il ne "fooait" pas. Il ne "fooera" pas.

Notice that doesn't, didn't, won't perform two functions by defining the tense of the verb as well as negating it.

What might a French peasant have grumbled about in 1789?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The main grievance was the huge discrepancy between the wealthy and the poor. The peasants had no money and no food, while the French Royalty spent all of the country's money on lavish parties, clothes and palaces. Queen Marie Antoinette is generally credited with the line "Let them eat cake," said after someone asked her what to do about her starving countrymen. However, there is no proof that she actually said this.

How are escargot usually served?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Rinse 'em, cut them up so they look less like snails and so you don't get a huge bite of just snail, and incorporate them into a delicious alfredo. You could find a recipe by googling escargot, pasta, and parmigiano-reggiano. (Why not get decent parmesan if you're going to eat escargot!) I found that right out of the can, they smelled like breakfast sausage, but in the finished food, they were very mild and mushroom-like.

Can French legion get French passport?

Asked by Wiki User

Yes. Under "declared identity" a Frenchman's nationality is changed to that of another French speaking country, so he becomes a foreigner. He can ask for his real identity and nationality after one year's service.
