Are you saying Disney lied to me? Yes, I am!
Like in this scene of Beauty and the Beast. Mon ami e is used for very close friends. You can use it in a sentence. Another misconception! You can find Touche mon frere in my lesson: Le 14 Juillet. Bonjour, mon ami. The scary thing is, this is a common mistake you might be making without even realizing it.
You can talk about it afterwards! Students love it! We also have terms of endearment in French, I included a few of them at the end of this message. Thanks Fabien, but I was referring to terms you might use with a stranger or someone with whom you were not close. Typically, you will not use those terms of endearment with someone with whom you are not close. You may use the name or the title instead Monsieur, Madame, etc. I have a dear friend who is fluent in French. She studied at Sorbonne in Paris. Speaking with her will help me learn faster.
I love French and the country and people! Can I say to her Tres Chere Amie? What does Ma douce amie mean? That being said, this is very common in Cajun French culture and used very often. Really like your Website. I have met a frensh man that I really like so now I am trying to pick up some frensh words. So when I engage in some more, it is then I will comment on something. Merci beaucoup. I had a professional acquaintance who said it often to me in phone conversations but I would never say it to an actual close friend.
Mi amigo for example. The usage of mi amigo — or similar — is common in Spanish, but the context is different. I hope this helps! Hi Harise. The intention is to make anyone feel welcome.
There are other words that can be used with the same purpose depending of the region the person is from: pariente relativeprimo cousinetc. Good evening Geraldine I just had to comment. You look like a young Judy Garland. So sweet! Hope to visit France soon once this health crisis is over and we can fly in comfort with good food and French wine!
Regards Tommy. Thank you for your lessons Geraldine.
What is the difference between these words? Terrible article. French here, this article is very true. You can refer to a friend as Mon Ami e but I would never use these words in a direct conversation with said friend. No need to be insulting, just accept that there are some untold meanings behind words and Touche mon frere not all words have the exact same meaning in all languages.
But what if I was introducing a friend? You would be understood — but a French person would assume there are cultural differences between you. I am French Canadian. Feminine: Mon amie! Hi Penny! Remember that Hercule Poirot speaks French but is Belgian. In Belgium they have other subtile things that they say.
So Fabo! With the cartoons included in the lesson. Bonjour tous! I hope I can say that. Great practical lesson — i never knew not to use that. Could anyone help…. What about if you qualify it? Bisous Brian. Hi Brian W. Then it might sound sarcastic or pedantic, even. Hope this helps. Long answer: Not on its own. French people would probably understand your mistake and your intention, though, and not be offended for it.

Want to save this for later? the conversation! Is there a French equivalent? Bonjour Bob, Typically, you will not use those terms of endearment with someone with whom you are not close. Bonjour, You can certainly use this expression with your friend, however particularly so in writing. Thanks Venus! Love the way you explain it — am sold on the concept already! I really enjoyed my first look at commeunefrancais. Merci Lisa! Hi Emma! Keep in mind, Poirot is Dutch…maybe that changes the tone of his quirks.
Vous avez le style, aussi. Thanks Mary! Merci, Geraldine. Hi Lee! Short answer: no.
