‘People’ if not adopted by ‘group’ or ‘singer’ simply sounds American to me and I attempt to converse my native language and the one of many nation that I dwell in for desire.
Truly the phrase folks has a lot older origins than folks within the English language
Isn’t it from outdated german ‘volk’ with all of the 20thC connotations that drags with it…. Ein volk, ein Reich, ein Führer.
Sure, Germanic origin, proportion of the English language has Germanic roots.
In Britain, I imagine folks (nonetheless one spells it…) goes again to Anglo-Saxon occasions…

I feel her challenge is a good supply, for individuals who need to enhance their keep in France however are battling the language.
I’ve up to date my publish to make clear it.
What I meant is that this program is particular to individuals who need to be taught French for on a regular basis life.
One of many largest downside of language learners when studying a brand new language is that they don’t select a course that’s particular to their wants.
I had this downside after I discovered English and Spanish in highschool. I cherished the teachings, I had superb lecturers and I learnt so much. However it was too basic.
So after I went to the US, I used to be misplaced: folks have been speaking too quick, I used to be unable to have lengthy conversations, I didn’t know enought helpful vocab for each day life and I used to be afraid of telephone calls. And now I perceive why: this was not my lecturers fault. The issue was that the course was not tailored to my wants.
Now I understand that some English individuals who dwell in France have the identical downside. And I might love to assist them. That’s why I’m at the moment operating interviews to have a greater understanding of their wants so as to enhance this program particularly (I additionally produce other applications for different forms of college students).
**I don’t educate the identical program to different English audio system as a result of it wouldn’t be useful to them.**Please learn the next rationalization and don’t take this sentence out of context.
For instance, I additionally educate French to youngsters who want it for college, to physiotherapists who dwell in Switzerland and have to cross DALF C1 so as to be independant, to people who find themselves already fluent however simply want to enhance their pronunciation. Different French lecturers educate French to English audio system who dwell of their native nation, however have to be taught French language so as to converse to French prospects. All of them have totally different wants so In the event that they need to be taught French effectively, they want totally different applications.
I hope it’s clearer now.
Sure, I utterly agree. My introduction to on a regular basis French was comparable (quand j’étais stagiaire chez Air France dans les années 90). In my case I fell in love with a French girl who taught me greater than any instructor ever did. La meilleure façon d’apprendre une langue étrangère c’est sur l’oreiller
I used to be in France however I simply moved to Spain. My firm remains to be primarily based in France.
That might be the case, however this can be a household thread!
