I'm writing this thread after Chuck had the idea of it, very clever indeed. We all know that Laurent is french, as well as the Chef - what means that their english isn't perfect. And sometimes, a french word comes into the sentences... But it better make sense. Here you go. If you need any more, just ask it here...

Hello - Bonjour / Salut
Goodbye - Au revoir / Salut
Thanks - Merci
My god - Mon dieu
Bike - Vélo
Car - Voiture
Preps - Bourges
Greasers - Blousons Noirs (What litterally means Dark Jackets)
Turf - Territoire
Work - Travail
Snow - Neige
Fall - Automne (season)

I knew some of these, I learn French in my school.

A question: is "do you want" spelled voulez vous?

Okay, a little lesson there. In French, when you speak to an adult or someone you respect much, you use the "vous". When it's a young person, or someone you know well, you use the "tu". English doesn't make the difference, it's "you" anyway. In the case of Laurent, that is young and in a school, he would better say :

"Veux tu..."

"Voulez vous..." is fully correct. It just has to be used when talking to a prefect, a teacher, or any adult... Get it ?

Hey! I remember most of these words! :)  I took 4 years of French.....but it has been about 4 years since my last French class, so I'm a little rusty.

Google Translate maybe too stupid for this

Google translate is very limited in its capabilities.  I'd rather ask Mercury about anything I am unsure about as French is his first language.

Yeah, he's like....The French Expert.

Why bother Google when we have our very own 'French Connection' ?

I warn you, Serbian is a very difficult language to learn. Google Translate won't help you at all.

Indonesian is less difficult, because many Indonesians go online

What's that got to do with language difficulty? Many Serbs hang on the Internet too, but still Serbian is a tough language to learn.

 I don't think anything compares to the difficulty of learning Chinese....

Okay, I guess Google Traduction had all wrong on this point ! Here are the answers.

The Bullies : Les Caïds
The Jocks : Les Sportifs
The Nerds : Les Fayots
The Rockers : Les Rockeurs

Here you go !
