Re: French speaking.

Hi Elvi,
Look out for the announcement on the forum calendar for the next social event in Lausanne, which will probably be on Thursday night in two weeks. There are quite a few people that have been coming to these events who would like to improve their French, and you may be able to organize something with one of them. Plus, you can practice your English while having a beer with us (the beer may make it more or less difficult, I don't know).
Chris.

Re: French speaking.

I'm in Canada, and would like to meet some native Swiss French people. For one thing, even though I learned my French in Belgium, I can't find around here even so much as a French dictionary that has all the Belgian and Swiss words in it! Even the two respective Consulates are no help. Because I learned in Belgium, even when I speak French around here, I get either treated like or told outright that I am "not speaking French." I am told that native Swiss people are treated the same way.

Among Swiss and Belgians, is the only time I feel like apologising for being Canadian! Now that I experience first-hand how my country treats the country where, after all, the language originated (Switz)...!

Sounds like you should be telling people to mind their own business and learn how to live with other peoples accents since I assume you speak French well.
BTW French did not originate in Switzerland, only Swiss German did (and Rumantsch)
