Excusez moi muhkoo,êtes vous le fiancé ou la fiancée?vous vous exprimez tres bien en français.êtes vous americain de naissance?

Waouh c'est gentil ! Je suis l’américaine, née américaine :) mon fiancé est francophone bien sûr donc il m'aide à améliorer mon français, mais j'ai quand même appris un peu au lycée et a l’université ainsi que pendant mon séjour au Camer. On me dit que ma façon de parler le français (et mon accent) est plus bcp plus camerounaise que française malgré que tous mes professeurs étaient français. hah. on peut dire que je me suis adaptée.

Good.on s'en fou de l'accent et tout.c'est vrai que les camerounais ne parle pas aussi vite que les français.l'accent des autres pays africains est plus fort que ceux des camerounais.mais l'essentiel C'est qu'on se comprenne.moi aussi je suis la fiancée camerounaise.

welcome to you both.

i"m also from Cameroon.

je suis de la région Nord-Ouest du Cameroun, est précisément de Bamenda. Mais je ai vécu tout au long de la région du Sud-Ouest. Donc, mon français ne est pas très bon. Je ne essaie français parce que je suis un camerounais.

I did the K-1 before and wasn't successful. If you go theu my timeline, you'll see everything.

Thank you! Best of luck to you as well!

I love Bamenda. Ndjamma ndjamma is my favorite Cameroonian food :D

Can I ask why your K-1 was not succesful?
