You can say: 'Mon ecole est petite' <--'my school is small' Mon ecole est grande' <--'my school is big' 'les cours sont interessants' <--the classes are interesting. 'les profs sont intelligents' <--the teachers are smart. 'les profs sont amusants' <--the teachers are amusing. to say 'i am a student at ________. you say 'Je suis eleve a _________. for example; Gardens High School would be 'Je suis eleve a Gardens lycee. Or you can just abbreviate it by saying 'Je suis aleve a GHS.' hope i helped.

Masculine describes the gender of the French word baladeur. The masculine noun in its singular form translates as "music player" or "Walkman" in English. The pronunciation will be "ba-la-duhr" in French.

Why are so many french speaking countries in Africa?

It is actually very simple. Since France at one time was among the world's colonial powers along with Spain,Britain,Portugal,etc... According to the Berlin Conference in 1885, France was alloted portions of Africa, in northern, western, as well central Africa and the some of the islands as well. In colonial times, the colonists' language was the official language, this was useful in terms of communication with people of different ethnic groups, kingdoms, tribes,etc... Thus in French colonial Africa, "LE FRANCAIS" was the official language. This was taught in schools, mission facilities by priests mainly to indigenous Africans. France was more thorough in spreading its culture and language more than Britain for example. There are more French-speaking people in Africa than elsewhere actually. Belgium also used French as the official language in its colonies Congo DRC, Rwanda,Burundi. Although in Belgium French and Flemish(Dutch) are official. Thus the Congo DRC, today is probably the largest French-speaking nation, if not it's second after France. I hope I made everything clear now!

Which french companies offers job to students who knows french language?

User Avatar
French companies, at least in France, expect all their workers to understand pretty well the usual language. You will have to speak French well enough to work for them (and to have the know-how that they are looking for, because this is about working, not simply about speaking). They will be satisfied with your performance as a worker, and they will then take an interest in your native language, where you can make a huge difference - for instance in helping with the commercial relationship with foreign markets or companies.
