Does he really speak much French in the adaptation, or is it mostly just the occasional word or phrase here and there?

(Anonymous) 2017-09-10 11:33 am (UTC)(link)
The odd word or phrase.

Ha. Considering how he hates being called French rather than Belgian, this is hilarious.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-09 09:19 pm (UTC)(link)
OP didn't call him French. Belgian is a nationality, not a language.

I realize that. I just think it is funny that the OP learned the French language because of him when Poirot was always complaining about being called French.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-09 10:21 pm (UTC)(link)
He was complaining about people mistaking him for being French, I doubt he'd be offended if someone said he spoke French. It's still his frigging language. 'Belgian' doesn't exist, as far as I know.

I know. I just thought it was funny.

Belgium has three official languages, French and Dutch plus German mostly in one area. A Belgian named Hercule Poirot is very, very likely to be a native French speaker!

Nobody said he'd be offended if someone said he spoke French. philstar22 just thinks it's funny that OP learned French from a Belgian, who hates being mistaken for a Frenchman. Like, it's not that hard, and the fact that she finds it funny really doesn't need to be "corrected".

He still speaks French.

I know that. I just thought it was funny that the OP learned the French language because of a character who hates being called French.

For fuck's sake, French is one of Belgium's official languages. I don't like being mistaken for an American, but I still speak the same language, so? I don't get it why you find this funny at all.

I realize that. Sorry, it seemed funny to me.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-09 11:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Don't worry, you find funny what you find funny, no need to apologize.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-10 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
Oh crap! Somebody found something funny and you don't agree! So glad you were able to shut down this nonsense right away.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-09 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
I want to learn French because of French animation and franco-belgian comics, so I feel you.

Same! I got completely sick of Christie lapsing into French and expecting me to keep up...

(Anonymous) 2017-09-10 06:49 pm (UTC)(link)
To be fair to Christie, most people could at the time she was writing. In Britain anyway.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-09 09:44 pm (UTC)(link)
I get that, OP. I studied French history and the French language because I was weirdly obsessed with Marie Antoinette as a child.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-10 02:28 am (UTC)(link)
Me too!
