I need to watch more French-language films (to maintain/improve my ability in the language).
But I generally don't like French films.
The culture disconnect will make learning the language more difficult. How did you come to be in this situation?
My situation arises from the fact that I am Canadian and didn't get a choice regarding which language I would learn second. Achieving fluency in French was not much fun, so I'd prefer to maintain it rather than let all those years of study/practice be in vain. Reading and writing are still fine, but these days I can feel my speaking vocabulary deteriorating from lack of use. So I figured film might be a pleasant way to counteract that.
To be honest, I was actually hoping some of the recommendations here would be for French language films where the setting is in French-speaking countries other than France
, and the main characters are not from France. (Not enough space in thread title.) Since France is only 1 of 29 French-speaking countries in the world, I don't expect my lack of interest in the culture of France would keep me from maintaining my French language skills.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_co ... l_language
