je ne comprends pas๐Ÿ™„

Je ne comprends pas

I was just browsing through a digital collection of memories, from years gone by, when I came across pictures of our Europe trip in 2015.

I was studying French at that time, and was even taking tuitions to do better in my tests. My family found this cool, and expected me to guide them around during our stopover in France.

I was pretty confident in my abilities as well, cause I only failed in French once๐Ÿ˜‚



I knew what most of the stuff in the supermarket was…you know… poisson= fish, and snail= escargot….just a minute…did I say there were snails in the supermarket?

I must be kidding…or must I ?๐Ÿ˜’… lol


So yeah, I helped my family to buy groceries, but talking to French people……was a completely different story….

This is how we used to speak French in school-


Je m’appelle Tanishq= James apple tanishq


This is how the locals spoke French in France-


Wuzuueewuyouuuuu……cause I’m not even worthy enough to understand ๐Ÿคฏ


So the only person I really ended up talking to,in France was a 7 year old girl,cause her vocabulary was only a bit higher than mine…..after I asked her to slow down ๐Ÿ˜‚


To all the other people I just said this-


Je ne comprends pas= I don’t know what the he’ll you’re talking about ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

My mom had studied French too, but like a 100 years ago, so she didn’t really know anything…


1 day, mom and me went to buy some stuff to a local shop, and the shopkeeper was an old lady who would have had a ton of time to perfect her French.

We asked the lady for the stuff we needed…..and then…..

She went supersonic and started speaking like some alien language …. I almost imagined her wearing dark sunglasses, and a cap, with rap god written on it, and she’s like


Look, I was gonna go easy on you and not to hurt your feelings ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‚


Any way so whenever she looked at me and asked me something, I was like-

Oh….that’s easy, je ne comprends pas

Really?…je ne comprends pas

Ahahahahaha….je ne comprends pas


She would just ignore me, and continue conversing with ……someone, cause a conversation requires 2 partners, and she was definitely one…lol


After a while, she asked my mom something.

My mom thought for a minute, and then opened her mouth to speak…

I was baffled by this, cause I used to think that my mom didn’t know a word of French,but apparently she did…


She said….10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1…….




Je ne comprends pas ๐Ÿ˜ง


That’s all for today folks, have a good day!

OMG! That really hit me. Ofcourse, it sounds super humorous now, but it must’ve been so difficult there. ๐Ÿ˜น French is the most difficult language everrrr. I joined a 3-month French course at college and it’s still running, but I don’t attend the classes, cause I am just dead there. It’s so tough to remember those words. Like they’re not even pronounced as they are written. So frustrating. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hahah, this is cheating naa. By taking a French course, we should be able to tackle those people. But that never happens. When they speak, we feel like humein hi galat sikhaya hoga fir. ๐Ÿ˜›
