Give me all the cliches and memes you have about French tourists abroad, /int/, I have a paper on that.
French anons are welcome to give cliches too.
theres many cliches and memes about french people in france idk about french tourists abroad though
The ones ive seen i can only tell theyre french if they start speaking. just normal tourists
I like them a lot. I like how arrogant they are. I like how they refuse to speak any German and will shout in French at police officers, waitresses, train conductors and small children. I enjoy their tendency to compare everything to France; the weather, the food, the women, skiing, the scenery and so on.
They're unbelievably arrogant because they genuinely believe their culture and lifestyle is superiour. I like the British for the same reason. It's better than "hurr I am a citizen of the world" bullshit
French tourists are decent. You should have asked about German tourists. We're on the top tier of retardation and autism when it comes to tourism. We're enthusiastic fellows that sing our local anthems when we're in groups, just to let you guys know that Germany is invading again.
French people are weird though, talking about actual french and not some Abdelhamid here
Was on vacation in the countryside once, can't remember where exactly
Everyone expected us to talk to them in French even when they could understand English perfectly fine, you had to show them respect for their language first before they'd lower themselves to actually communicate
how come the first thing you do when you go to the beach is start digging holes?
haha this, there just butthurt we won the language race.
also french is a horrible language when spoken by males, its just way too effeminate, the opposite of German where even asking for a sandwich sounds like a call to arms.
Good goy :3
You're French, so you don't realise it but it's retarded. If someone can't pr,doesn't want,to speak French, don't make them do it. It will rather male someone feel lost if they fail to understand you, Pierre
>Compares stuff from your country to his and subtly suggests the french way of "thing" is better
>Thinks everyone believes the "french romance" meme
>Gets insanely drunk from a couple of beers
>All closet homosexuals or sexual frustrated
>Gets insulted by anything
>Can't stop talking about France
>Gets scared if you intimidate him
I think thats all of it
I met some French tourists here in NYC once.
They were mostly cool, but they would not stop complaining about the quality of american restaurants (turns out they were mostly going to tourist traps, lel)
I don't think the tourist we get here are your "typical" tourist. You have to be a special kind of crazy to come to this shithole.
The French tourists I've met are usually your 20-something that think his 1st wordl life at home is too perfect, too boring so they come here to experience "something different".
They are are light-hearted (borderline hippies sometimes), don't wear any fancy clothes and seek adventure. They usually stay at hostels in downtown, which is fairly dangerous but they find it "colorful".
They usually know a little Spanish or pick it up on the fly and try to be friendly to the locals.
They don't seem to fulfill any of the French sterotypes, except maybe the smell, sometimes they do have some "body odor".
Overall they are nice. A bit too hippy to my taste, but nice nonetheless.
>Tells other people they can't drive
>senior year of high school
>two french exchange student girls are in my math class
>their English is terrible
>constantly fucking around in class and getting yelled at
>never talked to anyone but each other
>never could answer any questions
>they failed the class
Literally the only contact I've had with a French person, though a friend of mine was in France and ordered a steak well done and the waiter laughed at him and hit his hat off his head.
In my opinion German is beautiful but this meme isn't false. German just gives off an impression of sophistication and in some way power because standard German has a clear pronunciation.
Though French can sound pretty harsh as well
French tourists are unbearable, rude and often won't even speak to you properly in English
French tourists are OK. It's their offspring which is usually the most misbehaving kids you will ever meet. And the school groups are always like 50℅ sandniggers with absolutely no respect.
French can be total assholes. I used to work at an ice cream shop and these French people came in and started asking if they could taste a bunch of different flavors and whatnot. They were taking awhile to decide on what they wanted so I decided to make some small conversation and asked them what language they were speaking (I was 16 really had no idea). All 5 of them gave me the dirtiest, most condescending look I've ever gotten and just said French. They were so offended, they walked out.
>a friend of mine was in France and ordered a steak well done and the waiter laughed at him and hit his hat off his head.
But seriously, the waiter should have been fired on the spot.
Let's be clear about this
Living in Paris atm
I have foreign tourists asking for direction every single week.
They often ask in broken french. I don't mind, I find it cute actually.
I try to answer in simple french. They don't understand.
I switch to english because I don't want them to go the wrong way or get lost somewhere. They get mad and tell you they're here to speak french and they're not schoolgirls or something.
And you have the opposite side of the coin where people come here, don't speak a WORD of french and assume every single person should speak english for whatever reason.
Just make up your mind already?
I had 2 french qts in my accounting class last semester. They talked to each other in French the entire class and generally seemed unwilling to be friends with ANYONE. Buncha cunts tbqfh
>they are shit at driving and get scared if you go +50 km/h (do they even initiald?)
>they don't know how to speak another language besides french cause they think they are still relevant (lol)
They don't stand out much tough...
>They don't understand.
>I switch to english because I don't want them to go the wrong way or get lost somewhere. They get mad and tell you they're here to speak french and they're not schoolgirls or something
that's just being stupid though
and i'm talking about people who literally refused to acknowledge a single thing you said in english until you started over again in broken french AND THEN switched to english
At least we're not smug as fuck about everything and constantly drawing comparisons between what you have back home.
>ohohoho, zis dessair was ouké, but eet would be tres betteur in France
Most people I know who travel to south america are indeed hippies trying to save the world or something like that.
They're pretty harmless though and you can easily spend good time with them if you want (or fuggg the girls since they're often quite easy).
A large part of french people who go to latin america are leftists who want to yell "hasta siempre la libertad" or other shit like this. They are not cunts or anything but like you said, they are a bunch of leftists hippies

I work in a resort town in eastern Wisconsin called Kohler. It is home to a 4star-5diamond hotel, 2 world class golf courses (the PGA was here in August), a luxury spa, private/rentable cottages, and world class chefs to boot. Needless to say I've seen my fair share of tourists.
If you want me to rate tourists from your country just ask, I'll always take a (you).
Anyway, French tourists. The who travel here are usually elderly, although I have met a few young Frenchmen here before too.
The French come in two different variants: The type who keep to themselves and come off seeming standoffish, and those who are very interested in Americans and American culture (or at least Wisconsin culture).
Usually the younger Frenchmen are more talkative and willing to try classic American food like hotdogs and bacon-cheeseburgers. They usually come as a small group of friends in the mid-late 20s, or the children of elderly Frenchmen who came to golf. Although some are more reserved, many young French men and women are eager to practice their english with any employee of the resort (or local) they meet. By the way the female french accent is the most adorable accent ever, so you french ladies got that going for you over in the states.
The Elderly French are much more reserved than their younger counterparts. They will gladly accept assistance on the golf course, such as a caddy, but will rarely go to social events scheduled. Needless to say they'd much rather purchase a bottle of wine and have a few drinks on the patio watching the sunset.
Smoking seems to be popular amongst French tourists, and they seem very adventurous in trying American brands. Their favorite brand however is American Spirits (the one I recommend when they ask what a good American cigarette brand is). And the stereotypes are true, they love their wine. Wine drinking, again, is more common amongst the elderly, as the younger french will often go for local craft beers like New Glarus.
>apologizing to America
nègre, tu quoi
Just reminds me of the French exchange student a feiend of mine had. That girl was a massive degenerate but respectful towards people actually.
Noice, I live close to the Alsace. Sorry about our case system though, ot can be bothersome but every language has its issues.
He can filter them but desu, all this stuff is memes, the only memes that aren't true are those about the romantic Frenchman that does your wife.
No, dey took 'em
That's prolly a western Euro thing
they even refined and industrialized the process to make it more efficient
>they don't know how to speak another language besides french cause they think they are still relevant (lol)
the problem is they can speak english they just choose not too.
i was northern france last year booking into a hotel, the guy at reception said he spoke no english and called for some women to come serve me instead.
Later that day i went to the hotels restuarant and low and behold the same guy was one of three waiters that night, the menus was in french and he translated the entire thing literally in perfect english to me after some hesitation
>french hotel restaurant
literally burst out in laughter once because of the german translations on a menu from a hotel i visited once
They had mistaken avocado for advocate while translating so the menu said my salad sauce contained Rechtsanwalt
*Those who travel
Continued because it was to long.
Overall I really do like French tourists. They are often polite, and despite stereotypes, are seldom rude. A young French woman has even helped me a bit with my French during a 20 minute shuttle bus ride out to Whistling Straights (one of Kohler's golf courses), and even came off as a bit flirtatious.
Anyway I hoped this helped and that you can use some of this info in your paper, OP. if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
The French are jerk to the eternal Anglo because we had too many commies during the cold war.
Sounds very accurate. Also
>Smoking seems to be popular amongst French tourists, and they seem very adventurous in trying American brands.
When I was in the U.S, last summer, I was often in company of a friend, who smoke a lot. Problem is, like most students, he rolls his own cigarette and buy all the material (tobacco, leaves and stuff) so people would often assume he was smoking pot - he was, but not in public.
The funniest thing happen when we were in Nashville, though. We noticed a car parked in front of a bar, on mainstreet, with a few guys inside. They followed us when we went out of said bar, and when my friend started to roll his cigarette, they pulled over and almost jumped his arse.
The look on their face was priceless when they realize it was just tobacco.
In this particular case he probably just wanted to ditch or something.
But keep in mind that about 40% of French people can talk in English, although more than that will understand what you are saying.
A lot of people don't use English after they finish high school or University too.
Nice bait dildo. None of what you have said is true. At worst people would be indifferent. Possibly a surrender joke might be mentioned. We have a lot of francophiles as well.
god it hurts physically to watch this
>be in rome for vacation
>sitting in the middle of a roundabout with benches on it
>witness an italian crashing his car into another one right in front of me
>they get out and start yelling at each other
>i get up and walk over to ask if they want my account
>before i get there they both just flip each other off, get into their cars and drive off
i was really dumbfounded by that
Clichés m8, I am that poster but I'm not a retarded tourist. The most retarded thing I did sofar was in my own cunt during a class trip in highschool. Our whole group sang our state's anthem in Berlin lmao. Bit that's pretty much it.
Employees of the resort are no stranger to hand rolled cigarettes. Many of the people who come here have deep pockets and like smoking their own sourced tobacco in hand-rolled cigarettes and pipes. I understand how outside of a resort people may mistake them for blunts.
>>i get up and walk over to ask if they want my account
That stands out to me as one of the most German things I've ever read
French people need to learn to take a shower every day when they go to a hot climate.
You could smell the French exchange students entering the class and see the oil marks when they touched their hair and then the table. Quite disgusting desu
The immigrants who learned to wash themselves are OK.
I've met a few Germans, not enough to give a full analysis on, however. One thing is for sure though: German women are very very very flirty with me. Out of the 4 I've met all 4 flirted with me. I thought this was odd considering I've heard that Germans are very stern and strict.
How can you keep on doing this australia..
German women are terribly easy, the first time I heard of the German women are prudes bs was on /int/ and it still surprises me.
And there are so many Ameriboos in Germany.
t. German bleeder of you catch my drift :^)
(Feel free to post an absolutely disgusting meme)
>A young French woman has even helped me a bit with my French during a 20 minute shuttle bus ride out to Whistling Straights (one of Kohler's golf courses), and even came off as a bit flirtatious.
She probably was flirting you knob.
So your give them change in a currency worth less than they gave you?
That's rich coming from a Dutch.
My cousin lives in Amsterdam and she often comes in Ardèche to visit my family with Dutch friends.
Once, a couple of her friends wanted to visit the region so we showed them to visit the plateau. When they came back, they were fucking pissed and thought we tricked them because the road was "very dangerous", they literally shat themselves. In fact, it was just a small mountain road and Dutch people are afraid of mountains, they're not used to it.
I work at a museum and we get a lot of French. I'm never sure if they're tourists unless they tell me because we have a French neighborhood in the city, but they're usually nice. Tend to keep to themselves unless they need directions. I'm learning french, so I try to listen to their conversations and feel a bit guilty about it, even though I only ever pick up a few words here and there.
I've met a few ones. All of them smoke like no tomorrow, for some reason they had this smelly smell, pretty weird like a bit sour. Mostly nice people, always criticizing little things here and there and eating a lot. I don't mind the smoking part because i also do it, but even i think that the way those people smoke it's too much.
really well put. lol. I like them a lot, too. I would definitely say French tourists seem "aloof" and can come across as rude but it's usually in a... classier? way than Brits or Germans.
When i was a child I was ran over by an old french woman in a zebra crossing. She tell me it was my fault because I didnt see the road.
I still think that walkers have preference in zebra crossings in France as in Spain.
But I have seen some nize french people too. No in Paris.
You mean crosswalk? Yeah they do here as well, the cars actually have to come to a stop if someone is in it. Pedestrians also always have the right of way here, it goes: person>bicycle>automobile.
I'll say bad experiences with assholes, regardless of nationality. I live in a touristic place, people from almost all the world come to hang around and really most people are nice and try to have fun. But theres a minority who wants special treatment, bring special snowflakes or have brain problems, depression anxiety or whatever. Those are the people to avoid, too bad that yours were French.
I've never had a problem with Brits, they always seem to be in a great mood while they're here.
Germans just want the good or service you offer and then they fuck off, which is an admirable trait sometimes.
yeah but bare in mind your experience of british/german and french tourists at some golf resort in wisconsin is one end of the scale... now try asking somebody in a med all-in resort the same question and compare results. british and german tourists are pretty fucking bad tbqh. french are better. russians are worse.
also looool @ the french people getting cut up over the fact that YOU CAN'T FUCKING DRIVE. Look up statistics friends. Anecdotally driving in Paris is a borderline Delhi experience. Dutchie is right -- Dutch people drive better. (Although I can see the mountain road situation occurring.. perhaps better isn't the right word, but certainly less aggressively and more orderly.)

My gf is from France and occasionally has visitors come over from France and stay with us for a few weeks. They are usually more talkative and slightly less warm than Americans. Also they aren't afraid to talk about things like politics or religion in polite company. They are also fascinated by the huge portions of food at restaurants and as far as I can tell have never come across the situation where one might want to take food home because you couldn't finish it
But the thing they seem to be most shocked about is how educated or liberal people can be. Listening to our public radio in particular seems to blow their minds. It's almost like you've been indoctrinated to think the entirety of our citizenry are uninformed, unconcerned, and uninterested in anything beyond eating and going to church. They pretty much all go back thinking more highly of the USA. Granted I live in a big liberal city but yeah
>how educated or liberal people can be
When I see german tourists in Lisbon it is mostly interracial couples. It is mindfuck. Tall as fuck german girls(they are kinda manly imo) and we some black guy or turk. The old ones are chubby type. We don't see many male germans which is strange.
The single ones mostly come here to binge drinking and whoring with locals.
And they are kinda loud.
It wasn't my point to make a roast but it is kinda true.
I'm not that guy, I worked a convenience store in the tourist trap area of town in a large East Coast city for a year. I know from tourists.
That said, fuck the Chinese, and most Arabs. No, I can't tell you if we have the thing your friend wants. Showing me the text they sent you doesn't help if the shit is in Arabic. Why are you the only people in this ghetto city to come in with bruised wives?
They told me I was Anglo scum and told me to GTFO of my own province.
No problem, it's nice to hear nice things about your cunt sometimes.
Another question : aren't they always seen with a touristic guide or maps ? We do that when we try to learn about foreign cultures as you said.
one weird thing I noticed about French tourists is that they seem to drop their guard a bit and are slightly friendlier with shitskins here than with whites, presumably because they assume the latter is Anglo. the resentment runs deep I suppose
french girls are very full of themselves and/or dellusional
I mean I get it if you're super cute or have an amazing body but even most average gals behave like they're princesses.
My advice is aim for the stars. You'll have the same success rate but at least you'll tap nice girls.
I rip off Frenchie tourists all the time in China and they do nothing to stop me. At least Germans can put a good fight and bargain before kowtowing (Chinese always win in China you stinking Kraut).
French just surrender so easily to my unreasonable terms.
But I guess that's why I like them so much. Frenchies are such easy pushovers.

Sorry it took me so long to reply, I've been busy.
If they're on a short trip they will typically stay on the beaten path. Usually the ones that are there for an extended period of time either on work or as an exchange student will wonder about by themselves. When they live in the area for an extendeded period of time they will start to conduct themselves much like the locals once the novelty of a new place is gone.
I have never talked to one, but I have encountered two young French girls at the store where I am used to buy fabric. I heard stories from my friends two.
One of my friend's family runs a restaurant, and it's a pretty fancy one, she told me that generally the French are quite rude to the waiters, giving bad looks, etc.
And another friend told me when he was at college he had an exchange student in his class, and he told me that she smelled like Mordor.
I guess in France the weather is more cold? Here is pretty hot in the summer, and you need to shower everyday so you don't smell.
