    Now that you have my attention ... As some of you here may know I am a French assistant and give French classes in Germany !
    I am about to do a class on French clichés !
    So I had a cool idea and wanted to know if you guys could write what country you're from and what are to you the main French cliches !
    I'd like to compare your answer to my students :)
    Please help me :D !
    Vive la France !

    the clickbait is strong in this one. *squints at the screen*

    Um. Cliche's i've heard is that they eat tiny portions and eat VERY slowly.

    ... That's all.

    Germany, you're cowards, it's common to make jokes about them being cowards in my town.

    Cold and straightfroward, that's the impression I've had of French people I've met. Most of them dressed quite well and they smoke a lot.

    At our school the teachers said to us when we asked why we needed to learn French that French people dislike it when people that visit France don't know the language. So working with them or even ask help too them in France would be hard.

    I hate it tho when people go with preconceptions about other cultures and country's but yeah this what they told me, idk if it is true

    French women don't shave, hairy legs and armpits, that's my own observation, but here are a few more from The Apprentice.

    Now can I get some likes for my excellent memory since this was 6 years ago and it instantly came to mind due to the OP ? :D

    well when I was in high school french , German , and Spanish were the only choices , when I start to be exposed to more languages I noticed that french is not that bad but it still not my cup of tea .

    to be fair most hard languages on earth would probability be some asian language like thai or Chinese cuz their writing systems are so hard and you can't even recognize letters , words until you get really hooked up in the language , it's actually amazing to see that those two languges survived with how hard they are .

    The thing I heard about asian languages like Thai and Chinese is that it easy to learn and that the only difficult thing the writing system is. Idk if it is true, never tried to learn them.

    Nope, clichés is part of life. When people don't know about someone or something, they always assume things without knowing. That's why I will bring those things in class to discuss about my students point of view and tell them about it as a French person so that they know what is real or not :)
    As a "almost" teacher the classes about clichés are actually the best and funniest to do ^^

    Ok then talk about double standards then, i remember one user who got a warning and was banned because of some cliché jokes that was deemed as offensive.
