    Ligion Entrrongere. "March Or Die". They have been great US military allies.

    Je pense que vous vouliez écrire: Légion étrangère.

    (I think you meant to write...)

    Je travaille pour une tres grande entreprise francaise. Je crois qu en general ils ont un style de management tres solide et tres agressifs, ils sont bons hommes d'affaires et je les aime beaucoup. J'ai un tres bon ami qui est un colonel de l'armee française, il est aussi un bon agent que tout celui que je connais et a passe la majeure partie de sa carriere dans le Middle-East ou en Afrique. Vive l'Armee francaise!

    BTW- Je suis "showing off"!:wink:

    I surrender! :worship:

    I didn't think that was too bad for not having done ANY French in...oh...well, since I was a child in the UK and we studied French.

    But I was able to "parse" the above about 70%...I guess the Rosetta Stone review is working!

    Latin and Spanish helped a little so I got about 1/3.:smile: Sorry my original spelling was way off but the thought remains.
