French Terms Indiana!!!
« on: August 23, 2007, 06:53:39 PM »
So who here knows the French terms with their American equal?

I want Every one in Indiana to know both terms!  This may should really harsh but its a good exercise and should you find yourself training with some one who doesn't speak english you will still be able to talk to them by using the French terms.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkour  There is a wonderful table here.

I will post the table here asap!

I agree with you. Americans need to learn multiple languages like everyone else in the world. The least you could do is learn the terms for this discipline that you all love so much. Parkour is truly international, and knows no ethnic or national boundries. I think the traceurs who practice it should have some of that quality as well. Good point FreeStyleFox. You get a +1 for that.

If everyone in Indiana could learn these terms, we could set an example, and hopefully get the other states to follow this and learn the native terms of our great discipline.

Yeah, I totally agree with FreeStyleFox if you're going to learn an art you should know it inside and out.  Learning the terms will definitely be helpful.

heh!

i wouldn't have expected someone from the mid-west to suggest something like that.
then again i dont know that many french that would come to the mid-west to practice with the exception of major cities.
all in all it makes for more culture so its a good idea.

Most places out of the English speaking community's know the French terms so it would be more helpful then just with the French.

This is a nice little application. Demon pointed it out to me a while back on parkour.net.

Look at the animation for the saut de bras. Take a close look at the kid with no shirt when he lands that catleap. It looks like his head bounces off the wall. I wonder if he got whiplash from that... and then it looks like the shockwave traveled down his body and his right foot came loose from it.  ???

Also, thanks for hosting it on your website. I wanted to put this one online in a place where you wouldn't have to download it as a zip file, but I got lazy and never did it ;p

Learning multiple languages at the same time proves to be rather difficult =/

It's not bad. I'm learning two languages at the same time right now (Somali and Arabic). You get used to it after a while. You just have to condition your brain more.

Sounds like a good time. And I am interested in that. Where are you learning all that? At your college? That is really beast. I am taking German, and adding French shall be exciting. Especially since it is kinda priority now that I learn French because I have been informed of a special trip to a special special place =). o0o0o0o I can't wait!

I'm not learning in college. I have been studying on my own. My city has about 75,000 Somalis living in it, and I have been living and working in their community for about five or six years completely embedded in their society, so that helps alot. I'm learning Arabic so I can listen to lectures and read books by scholars written in that language. I am trying to go to Egypt this summer to do an intensive Arabic language program at a school in Cairo. What's cool is I found a thriving community of traceurs in Cairo, and plan to hook up with them if I can make it over there. That should be really interesting =)

Heck yes man. I think you should come to Richmond sometime. It would be uber fun and maybe someday I could get over to where you are.

I've been learning 2 languages as well: French and Japanese
On a personal note I must say I love Japanese way more!  ::)

It is somewhat daunting at first but you can def. get used to it.
If you really want to be fluent I suggest the Rosetta Stone.

Anyway, I will def. be learning the French terms for the moves as
well. Great idea fox. +1.

Also +1 to Muhammed for learning those difficult languages
and breaking down the barriers between oh-so-different
cultures.

Hey i have also been learning Japanese and love, accept for my teacher shes a bit weird, but yeah i think i will download Rosetta Stone. i had been using Pimsleur but just listening to it on my ipod. So hopefully this will work better and then we can all speak, nihongo, arigato... i need to get the program that lets me do all the kanji, hiragana, and katkana on here that would be nice.
