Is he speaking in French? Wow..
Swiss people speak French, and it is the French open...
Yeah, he always speaks French in France. That's what they speak there.
Federer speaks Swiss-German, German, French, and English fluently.
Well, his french is OK. He's not exceptionally articulate when he speaks.
LOL at this thread.
Ah, I didnt know Swiss spoke french...
x 2 :lol::lol:
Errr, not exactly. Tell that to someone who´s from Zurich, and see what their response is. . .
Some Swiss people speak French. Federer does because he trained in the French-speaking part of the country as a youngster, but his French isn´t perfect because it´s not his native language. He´s from Basel, which is German-speaking.
Strange question. Does it not sound like French?
I understand that he also speaks some Italian.
Depending on the area of Switzerland you're from, the language is French, Swiss-German, or Italian.
Federer grew up in Basel, speaking Swiss-German and English (English because of his mum). He trained in the French-speaking area later, though. I believe he also speaks a bit of Swedish, but I'm not sure.
Where have you been? I assume you have watched Roger's past final appearances?
I guess I shouldve put "some" in front of my earlier comment haha.
Bien sur.. ganz klar.. sure thang.
he also speaks Swedish,which he learnt from his coach.He's got a real talent in languages.
Are you. coff....american?
Federer is Swiss. The country as two primary languages: french and swiss-german.
That doesn't mean that every citizen knows french and german.(and italian is official language too)
Wawrinka knows only french for example.It depends on the city they live.
Roger Federer - "Oui, c'est moi"
This question must be from an American, not a European for sure :lol:
Fed's native language is Switcher-Deutch, but depending on where in Schweiz you're from, they speak Italian, French and Switcher-Deutch, sounds really funny, sort of like the German they speak in Austria
really?For me the austrian german is more like singing like but the swiss is like eating while talking.I don't understand a word btw.It's like a complete different language.
About the swedish.... Federer learned a few dirty words and phrases in swedish, nothing more....
sorry mate but he's done what the 4 time defending champion can't do :roll:
His french is still better than Nadal's english...
So now we're *****ing Maximo because he says Federer's French isn't THAT superbe?
Get a grip..
maximo is actually quite right here I think. it's not Fed's native language and he learned it when he was in tennis academy as a teenager. he speaks very fluently but a French person can defenitely tell he's not a native speaker.
He doesn't speak with a typical French accent, but he understands it perfectly.
Separate names with a comma.
