Hey Francesi!?! Mi spiegate perchè???

gen 23, 2008 pubblicato in Francia, Pau, Viaggi

Vi riporto di seguito uno scambio di mail sostenuto in questi giorni.

Legenda:

IO = Beh, semplice.

LEI = Receptionist di un Hotel di Pau (Francia)

IO =

Hello XXXX,
how are you? Can I ask you if you have availability for:

- 4 rooms, check in 28/05/08 check out 02/06/08?

Waiting for your prompt and kind reply,

Best Regards

LEI =

Bonjour, oui nous avons de la disponibilité mais que des singles ( des chambres avec 1 grand lit )
cordialement, Fabienne.

IO =

Hello XXXX,
I apologize but I don’t understand French very well. Do you have 4 double rooms available? Is it that they only have 1 big bed?
Thanks for your help.
Marco

LEI =

YES I HAVE ONLY ROOMS WITH 1 BIG BED !

Ora…posso sapere perchè questi qui si permettono ancora il lusso di capire benissimo l’inglese, rispondermi in francese e sembrare addirittura scocciati quando devono convincermi a prenotare una stanza??????????

Perchè??????????

Incredibile…

    I’m french and I try to speak english but the majority of french people don’t speak english (France is the 69th country for english speakers). As the french are not travelers and as France is the first touristic destination in the world, the french consider (with pride) that they don’t have to move elsewhere or learn another language. They consider the anglo-american culture threatening for the Quebec-belgo-swisso-french culture. They also think that teaching efficiently english to all of us would be like starting the americanisation of our youngest generations. For those who do speak english they will use it only as an ultimate possibility. In that case she was surely considering that you could use a web-translator to understand her french. I’m sure she felt offended to be forced to speak english in her own country. I always feel ashamed of this weird patriotic attitude. Sorry for that.
