La French Culture

Dear readers,

It’s the weekend! And after an agitated week following DSK and family adventure is time to relax and have a bit of fun and laugh.

You might have heard a lot about French self-esteem, stereotypes and thoughts. In fact, we are the most intelligent people of the world, the most tolerant, the best cookers, the most beautiful girls, we have the most handsome boys, we are the most romantic and the best kissers. Whereas, British are bad kissers, bad lovers, liars, stupid, fake, cold and so on.

However, this funny video found on You tube will demonstrate the contrary and is really funny.  Of course, this video is made to be “funny” and all the good answers have not been recorded.

As a French person, I was surprised and laugh out very loudly on this.  The video being in French, find below some of the questions and their answers.

About frenchychic

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
