Comment ca va monsieur? How it does go, my sir?
Sup?

Est-ce que vous voudriez du vin, mademoiselle? Is it that you would like some wine, dear lady?
Slap the bag?

Qu’est-ce que c’est que ca? That is it, that it is, that’s what?
What’s that?

Enfin, on peut bien facilement lire un livre francais qui était écrit il y a trente-six ans, mais on ne peut pas dire le même comme les textes anglais. In sum, on can easily read a french book written a zillion years ago,  but one couldn’t say the same for English texts.
English evolves.

  1. Excusez-moi, mais vous avez tort. French has evolved as well. PS The past participle of ÉCRIRE is ‘écrit’. PSS Cute post.

  2. Haha merci bien!
