Afternoon isn't showing up right. The accent grave is causing a problem.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 16:19 GMT
so much for my 3 years of french.... :(

ugh, once i saw the word for century i knew it, but i kept trying "centaine" during the quiz.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 17:17 GMT
I second the accent grave comment. I had to type it incorrectly to receive credit for the answer.

I waited all morning for a new quiz and it's time terms in French?! Weak Sporcle, weak.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 17:31 GMT
4 1/2 years of French over 20 years ago. And somehow I still remembered 12 of the 14.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 17:57 GMT
i think that shows more about your life than Sporcle's problem 'dtownstomp' Waiting all morning for a quiz? That's very sad.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 18:28 GMT
These quizzes are sort of silly, aren't they? I mean, either you speak French, in which case you know them all, or you don't. Same with the "numbers in Spanish" or "counting in Italian" type quizzes. I don't really get how there's so much variance in the answers, to tell the truth.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 18:36 GMT
Wow, I've been speaking fluent French for about 4 years now and I still miss one...century to be exact for some reason I thought it was 'sigle'...my mind works in strange ways lol.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 19:11 GMT
@SporcleOracle: Odd. On the front page, the Played count for this game is stuck on zero.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 19:12 GMT
@segacs: I don't know, I find it kind of fun to stumble around and try different things seeing if they'll work. Or sing "Frere Jacques" to myself in English and French to see if any of the words are helpful. I speak no languages but English, so I usually do pretty bad at these (4/14 on this one), but I still think they are fun quizzes.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 19:12 GMT
2 years of French 30 years ago - got 10. I think these quizzes are aimed at how much people rememeber vs how much they know. If fluent french speakers bother to take this one, it must be a slow day at the office (Le bureau).
Aug 27th, 2009 at 19:15 GMT
@segacs: you know, there are other options than either speaking a language fluently or not speaking it at all. I only speak some French, which is why I only got 8 of the answers here. I don't think these language quizzes are silly at all - they help me remember some of the words that I've forgot.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 19:20 GMT
hate to be a spoil sport, but the last two answers are wrong. "du soir" and "du matin" mean "of the evening" and "of the morning." "au soir" and "au matin" are accurate, and oftentimes people simply say, "le matin" or "ce matin."
Aug 27th, 2009 at 19:39 GMT
@jan heenan...I found "8 heures du soir" meaning 8 o'clock in the evening in le petit Robert dictionary, and also "hier/le 17 au soir", meaning yesterday, the 17th, in the evening...so either preposition is correct to precede "soir,"depending on the context. Good quiz.

i hate these quizzes. either you speak the language and you get them all right or you dont speak the language and you dont even play. its not like the other sporcle quizzes where i know most of the answers and its just a matter of me remembering. this quiz is pretty much either a 100 of or a 0 or ppl dont care.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 20:46 GMT
Je suis Français, et honteusement je n'ai pas su épeler "décennie". Je pars me cacher avec ma baguette, mon béret et mon litre de rouge. I'm a French guy and I did not succeed in spelling "décennie" right. I go to hide with my baguette, my beret and my bottle of red wine ! About "In the morning" : I don't know the right meaning of the English expression, but 8 AM is said "8 heures du matin". Do you say "8 o'clock in the morning" in that case ? If you mean "I will visit you sometime in the morning", we say "DANS la matinée" (matinée is quite the same word as matin, but used in that case). This can cause some confusion

no hablo francais
Aug 27th, 2009 at 21:11 GMT
If I ever knew the word for "decade", I couldn't remember it now. I got all the others, though. I like quizzes like this. I'm not fluent in French or Spanish, but I speak them both on a basic level, so for someone like me, this is great fun! :)
Aug 27th, 2009 at 22:02 GMT
@ZeZapatiste, Yes, we'd say, "8 o'clock in the morning," or more casually,just "8 in the morning." Bon appetit! (my MS programme doesn't seem to do accents graves)
Aug 27th, 2009 at 22:44 GMT
@ZeZapatiste: Merci! J'avais pensé la mème chose, que "In the morning" est "Dans...". At least, Sporcle should accept it as an answer.
Aug 27th, 2009 at 23:40 GMT
I got 'afternoon', but missed 'noon'. D'oh!
Aug 27th, 2009 at 23:54 GMT
Thank god decade and century barely ever come up in conversation :P
Aug 28th, 2009 at 00:47 GMT
Should nuit count for evening? Someone with a better grasp of French should know.
Aug 28th, 2009 at 01:34 GMT
@Djibouti: Nuit means night. I tried it too when I couldn't remember the correct answer even though I knew it was wrong.
Aug 28th, 2009 at 02:51 GMT
If you think language quizzes are silly, then why click on them in the first place, it's just arrogant to assume than every quiz should be do-able by you. Besides, you either took French or Spanish in High School, this quiz was made for the sad few that took French =D Even if you're completely clueless you can guess a few, it's similar enough to English
Aug 28th, 2009 at 03:07 GMT
Trop facile! ;)
Aug 28th, 2009 at 11:29 GMT
"Fin de siècle". How literature class comes in handy.
Aug 28th, 2009 at 13:27 GMT
decade should count, as it is French as well as English...
Aug 28th, 2009 at 22:06 GMT
janwillemvandijk: definitively not ! A decade in French is a ten-days period !
Aug 29th, 2009 at 00:21 GMT
merde! j'oublie tous mon francais... damn my french has gotten terrible.
Sep 2nd, 2009 at 14:22 GMT
I'm sure I'm not the only one who ended up just 'Francicising' all the words i didn't know! (e.g. century= centurie)
Sep 5th, 2009 at 01:38 GMT
@buddhabear - j'ai tout mon francais oublier :P
Oct 19th, 2009 at 03:13 GMT
Oh I love these, keep 'em coming - in French, German, Spanish, Italian ... I don't think I ever learned the French word for decade, but what you have here makes sense ...
Nov 26th, 2009 at 06:23 GMT
i lived in france for a year and i never heard the word for decade before.
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 01:52 GMT
I did great on this quiz. The only one I missed was "decade."
Jan 27th, 2010 at 23:48 GMT
i thought you meant "second" like "deuxieme"! arg
Feb 27th, 2010 at 18:38 GMT
In high school and college French, and in my years of teaching and reading French, I've never seen the word for "decade" given here. I'm happy to learn it (my dictionary gives it only in the English-to-French section, not in the French-to-English), but "décade" is the first choice. It didn't work when I typed it in.
Nov 7th, 2010 at 02:24 GMT
wow, i really had to sit there and think about how on earth to say "decade"!!! i got it eventually, but it made me a little ashamed of myself. LoL
