French Project on Chad
Script for Grading :
"Hi, My Name is Frank."
"Uh... It's hot right?"
"Yah I'm like super sweaty. You reek."
"What? Uh ... Er."
"So you're like, from Africa?"
"Well, no, I mean-"
"One time I had a lizard from Africa."
"Well... I'm sorry for your loss."
"So, you're like, smart right?"
"Uh, yes I would suppose so-"
"So if I asked you anything you would know?"
"Uh, within reason, yes."
"How many people are there in Chad, Frank!"
"Hi my name's Steve-"
"How many people are there in Chad?"
"Chad has like 11 million people. And most of them don't live past 48."
"Well that's interesting I-"
"I can't stand unintelligent boys! Next!"
"Well... Je parle Francais."
"Oh yah? Where ya from."
"Yep. Where I'm from, we speak many languages. So far, my best is French -- Which is the official language. We also speak Arabic, Sara, Quadi, and other languages depending on which part of Chad you're from."
"Ferme le bouche."
"What? Oh, French, yeah, Oui! Anyway, personally, I don't follow religions, but my parents follow Islamic religion and Christianity."
"Vous etes moche."
"Not many of the kids from Chad learn how to. About half of them don't, and are illiterate. I think cause of that we don't have a good political system. We always got run over a lot by other countries because we had oil. Kinda sucked. We were taken over by the French too, back in the day, which is why we speak French. So I'm guessing you love Cha-?"
"You don't know French."
"What, no I-"
"Tu parle trope. Next! Hey wait!"
"Why like do you study like Islamic religion, if you're like in Africa."
"Well, Arab traders came to Chad and spread their teachings. You know how it is. So tribes like the Fulani or the Tubu started picking it up and practiced it."
"Anyway, on to you and I, I got these tickets to the game-"
"Whats your name?"
"So... are you from Chad?"
"Girl of course I am!"
"What was it like?"
"We struggled to produce enough food for our family, y'know? We're like... really poor. So naturally we cultivated the land or raised livestock. But, that doesn't mean we're super poor forever. Right now the economy is sorta booming, thanks to us investing in the oil industry."
"Wow... that's like super deep."
"Let's cut the crap, if you really wanna know the way to my heart, you gotta start at my stomach. First off, any lady that can make food from my homeland is a win. So start with this, it's this thick grainy porridge called boule. Nom nom nom. But oh girl, I love me some esh, cooked flour served with a sauce. You'd have my heart in an instant."
"Where are you from?"
"Oh. I don't cook. Next!"
"I dont like any of the guys from Chad. Maybe I should try Kenya."
