Main Entry: RSVP
Function: abbreviation
Etymology: French répondez s'il vous plaît
please reply

I stand corrected...

So there you have it, straight from a French student's mouth. My son is in french immersion at school, but they haven't started teaching that kind of thing in grade one yet...six years old and already knows more french than me.
One thing I have learned about french over the years, is that the way it's spoken depends on the region. French spoken in Quebec for example is completely different than french spoken in France. I had two friends in college, one from Quebec, and one who grew up in France. They could hardly understand each other and would constantly argue over what was the correct way to say something. Oh well, neither of them usually made much sense anyway.

Chickie.

The French spoken in Canada was imported many years ago,
while the French spoken in France developed independently.
From what I have heard Canadian French is from an older era.
BTW if two Frenchmen fight which one surrenders?
