Smile Hello from southern France

Hello everybody,
My name is Hayate and I'm from France. I'm here because, like all of you, i love cooking and particularly make pastries.

I registered here, on an english forum because i'd like speak english better.
I'm sorry for the "level of language" and know that it is difficult de read bad English, with many mistakes. In France, one says that it "sting the eyes" !
Feel free to correct me, it will be a pleasure for me

So, I do a lot of cakes but my dream is to suceed macaroons. I tried to do it 4 times, but it was 4 times a failure..

Eager to share with you :)

Bon jour, Hayate, and welcome to DC. You are not on your own with the macaroons. My grandmother tries to teach me when I was little but they've never worked for me.

I don't think you have much to worry about when it comes to your English.

Salut Hayate,
Bienvenue, I am Scottish but live in the Bearn region here in France...........and love it! My French is getting better but it is difficult so you are not alone trying to learn another language. We are lucky because we have a wonderful patisserie in town whose speciality is Macaroons so as I can't better them I make other cakes and pastries that they can't!!

Welcome to DC. You are doing just fine with your English. We have so many members that are from around the world. As we never fail to get the meaning of what they are trying to say. You are doing just fine with your English. It is not an easy language to learn.

You will find that this is a fun forum. We have a lot of laughs and really enjoy each other company and posts.

Welcome Hayate! I just got done reading a novel about learning classic French pastry. I also understand French Macaroons are quite different from American ones.

English is one of the toughest languages in the world to learn because it is so unstructured. You are doing fine and we understand. Keep posting.

Not to worry Hayate. There are many here who only speak one language (English, sort of) and many times, we don't do it particularly well at that. I admire anyone who even can get by with speaking more than one language.
WELCOME !!
