    Hello Andrew,

    I think there is few of French or French speaking members but it's mostly an american/ UK forum and it's almost 100% english speaking forum.

    Europe is too huge as a definition and do cover too much different language / geagraphic areas to be convenient. Regional areas could be created for different countries / languages, for example :

    Spanish
    French
    Italian
    German
    ...

    I'm sure this would end up with more people joining and participating in discussions and make FerrariChat a global forum (maybe it's not the purpose of Rob).

    My 2 cents of Euro for my first post here !

    Andrew,


    Andrew quote (how do you quote on this forum ? what did you say about french and internet ;-)) :
    ----------------------------------
    Well the main problems are :

    French dont speak english and french are allergic to the internet
    They are only warming up to the whole net life !!
    ----------------------------------

    French don't speek english : it's a little bit carricatural but you are right and that's why a french speaking section would be good for them and that, imo, is the condition to have more french here. I would add that even when you speak a little bit of english like me, sometimes i am frustrated not to be able to express myself with as much as nuances than I do (or tend to do) in french. With a name like Andrew, I beleive that english is one of your native language which makes it a lot easier and different for you.

    -------------------------------
    Seriously, even the Spain or Holland members are more active ...its sad !
    -------------------------------

    Yes, for Dutch : they all speak english
    For sapnish it's a lot more estonishing for me as I have always noticed in meetings that they were as bad as French or Italian for English. Things seems to change.

    ------------------------------
    BTW what do you do in Paris ? Glad to see im not the only parisian ..
    ------------------------------
    long time ago I was born here and now working in insurance business to pay 412 maintenance (yes I am one of these strange guys who like the 400/412 series ;))
