La famille – Podcast en français

La famille – Podcast en français

Hello and welcome to French with Pierre.
Today I would like to talk about a theme Interesting enough I think, it’s family.
So, family, why the family? Bah because the family is something
very cultural, family ties, the way we consider the family
according to the cultures and the countries, Well, it’s very different, it’s very
revealing of a culture. And so I found that it was interesting to talk to you
in this little podcast a little bit about the family in France.
So, the family in France … especially I will compare it more with Spain,
because in fact it’s when we start from one’s country that we realize a lot of
things. And it’s starting from France – since I live in Madrid for some
time now – that I realized many things and especially of
how family ties … how we consider the family in France, it is a
little different from Spain. So in France of course the family is
important but for example compared to Spain anyway, I can say that
it’s a little less warm. Anyway, in general compared to Spain,
France is a country a little colder you can say relative to people, well, anyway. But that, you would have suspected. Okay, so … for example, there is a difference
rather important, it’s that when you are already around 18-20 years, usually parents
make you understand that, well, it’s normal that you leave the family home and that
you begin your (adult) life. And in general young people around the age of 20 often leave their parents, especially when they do university studies. Even if they
do university studies in the same city ​​that their parents well, where
live their parents. So that is already possible because
France we give you scholarships, there is a lot of assistance, I already have
spoken about it, social assistance is very important in France, even if it decreases more and
more ! But in general, students have the right to scholarships and so can afford an apartment … finally rent an apartment for a low or very low price or even completely free. So already at the economic level it’s already a possibility. But it is not
not only for that, it’s also that there is a certain mentality to emancipate
yourself rather early in France and it’s pretty normal that young people around 20 or a little older or a little younger leave their parents’ home to live their lives, to make their
life. So that’s a first point that’s rather important compared to Spain where it’s is much more normal to stay at home for a long time. And besides, well, parents in general in Spain do not put pressure on you,
they are often happy to have their children at home, while in France
when the children stay a little too long, there are some parents … Well, I am generalizing, eh, of course, there is everything after. But very often, well, the parents make you
understand “well, it’s okay now, we took good care of you, it is necessary that you begin your (adult) life. Uh … so there you are, at that level the change is pretty important. And then even after, well, when you grow up and when you a big kid, that is when you’re 25, when you start making a living, anyway
family ties are much less … much less warm with parents
after. We see ourselves obviously, we do family meals, especially at Christmas, but
still in Spain the family is more bound together, parents … parents want
absolutely to see the kids. And also a very different point, it’s
related to grandparents and grandchildren. So in Spain in general the grandparents
are completely “gaga” as we say, gaga about their grandchildren, they want to see them absolutely. Well, in France too uh, grandparents love their grandchildren,
but they are not so eager to mind them all the time, take care of them … It’s not like in Spain where they are almost fighting to have them for a maximum amount of time. So … there you are, and then the grandparents may be a little less gaga anyway
in France, eh, of their grandchildren. Okay, and finally one last thing, I
am not going to … I want to do a podcast not too, too long, well, because I could
talk about it for hours, you know, it’s a subject … I’ll talk to you about it again in another podcast, I think. Another important thing finally, too, it’s the way (parents) educate
children, especially when they are very small. So for example in France anyway, it’s
quite normal … for example children starting from three months or even smaller, eh, to put them in a separate bed and in a separate room. So even in general
we say it’s rather good that the baby begins to have his own world and …
tends to separate fairly quickly as it’s the baby of the parents. So that’s quite different in Spain uh, me personally, I don’t do that at all, (I do) even completely the opposite. So for example, how does it work? It shocks a lot the French. Finally “It’s shocking”, they are quite surprised,
they even advise us “but no, but the child must already have his own world, to be a little independent is best for him. ” So we don’t agree so much with that, we prefer to have children when they are small near
us and we sleep in the same room until they are old enough. So that,
for example, in France it is not very common. And then, when the children grow up, how to educate them also, it’s quite different. In France it is
colder always and then it’s more severe. Often you will see French children …
besides, it’s quite amazing when they have … even around 7 years old, eh, they speak already a lot … a bit like adults you know, they are … So on one side, it’s good, they are able to construct very good sentences, (they have) quite logical reasoning, but it’s true that compared to Spanish children, for example, they are
very adult, you know. And then … well, and then we still ask them to be … to have
rather adult behavior, for example when the kids shout a little bit and all,
in France it’s “hush, shut up, we do not speak so loud, etc. “. So a lot
more than in Spain. And also, the world of adults and children
is much more separated. That is to say for example parents tend when
there are friends for lunch or dinner to separate adults and children, we mix less
children and adults. And that’s very revealing. For example also in
restaurants or cafes you will see very, very few children in France or
so at that moment it’s really … The parents decided to go to a restaurant
with their children and for example they take them to Mc Do or in a structure a bit adapted to children. Whereas in Spain, on the contrary, children
are part of the general world of everyday life and so in no matter what cafe, a bar, a restaurant, even late in the evening, there will be children, babies, who may sleep in the stroller, but they will be there, there are always some around who shout, who run everywhere. But good, it also gives (them) some energy,
a certain life, I like it. Uh … in France, that’s it, it’s more muffled, it’s
more discreet, they need more… to respect the others more and so often we say to children to keep quiet or we are not taking them in some public places. Well, that’s roughly what I wanted to say today, it’s … as I am saying to you, it’s a really big subject and maybe I’ll talk about it again in other
podcasts. That’s it, thank you, goodbye. If you like what I do, subscribe to
my YouTube channel, follow me on Facebook, share in social networks, comments,
talk about it to your friends, etc., etc.

  18. Muy bien elegido el tema para tu podcast. Estas comparaciones ayudan a entender las diferencias culturales y sociales mas allá del idioma. Todo es útil para una mejor comunicación y enseña a que tenemos que respetar las diferencias sociales entre culturas. Para los que vivimos en América y recibimos distintas corrientes europeas es muy esclarecedor. Felicitaciones por esto y por supuesto tus clases de idioma francés son muy apreciadas. Sos muy ordenado y claro y evidentemente tenés aptitudes pedagogicas. Abrazo- Néstor-

  19. J'ai aimé beaucoup votre comparaison des familles françaises et espagnoles! Merci beaucoup! C'est un plaisir aprendre avec vos vidéos. J'adore aprendre la culture et non seulement votre langue. Bravo!

  20. En France les relations familiales sont froides. Ils sont matériaux.ils ne donnent pas importance au sensations de leurs proches et au relations familiales.peut être a cause du ritme de vie chez eux qui est trop vite et accélérant.
