    Bonjour mes amies! I'm moving to paris in 3 months.. to work there for a half year. I'm fron holland and have French lessons in school. But still I can't speak french that well.

    I hope you can help me so I don't make a fool of myself.

    Bonjour! Je m'appelle Mandy, et j'ai dix-neuf ans. Je habitè à Eindhoven, aux Pays-bas. Maintenant je travaille à Dippie Doe, c'est un parc de famille pour des enfents du trois au douze ans.

    Hello! The correct way of saying it would be:

    Bonjour! Je m'appelle Mandy, et j'ai dix-neuf ans. J'habitais à Eindhoven, aux
    Pays-bas. Maintenant je travaille à Dippie Doe, c'est un parc de famille pour des enfants de trois à douze ans.

    J'adore écouter de la musique, je lis beaucoup de livres et j'aime danser.

    For things you don't learn at school,
    ¤ young people switch the order of some words like: "louche" would become "chelou" (that's the most used, but don't overdo it, would sound weird lol)
    ¤ online you'll see "tmtc" meaning "toi-même tu sais" = you know it yourself; "osef" = on s'en fout = we don't care about it

    So and right now there isn't much coming to my mind xD Maybe if you have more specific questions, just ask^^

    Yes, it is !

    We always say "beaucoup de" (like "a lot of something" and not "a lot somethings" ^^') so I never questioned myself about that xD Maybe a grammar freak is here to answer you? Quelqu'un ?

    If you say "beaucoup des", everybody will understand, it's just that we don't use that expression :/
    Just remember tu use "de" after beaucoup, peu, ... et bonne chance ... (veel geluk plutôt, haha)

    EDIT:
    I forgot about one case : "beaucoup des" could mean "une grande partie des". If you refer to a stack of books maybe you could use "beaucoup des livres (qui sont là)"
    WELL, GOOD LUCK WITH THAT O_o

    Voilà = there is/are
    Voici = here is/are

    they are demonstrative expressions, but depend on distance

    I'll try to help but it's quite difficult to think about examples, I'm so used to it xD

    - They can both be used when you give something (Voici (ton cahier)/ Voilà (ton cahier)).

    For the record, in Belgium, when giving something, we also say "s'il vous plaît" :
    "- Je voudrais aussi un croissant.
    - (giving the croissant) S'il vous plaît, madame.
    - Merci."
    But I think in France, they only say Voici/Voilà in that case (Can someone confirm this?).
    A waitress in Quebec told me she does not say "s'il vous plaît" )


    Another case I can think about :
    - When you see someone coming your way, you rather say "Ah, voilà François!"
    - And when you introduce someone "John, voici François."


    Also, when introducing a subject, you can say "Voici ce dont je voudrais te parler". When you have finished talking "Voilà ce dont je voulais te parler". But if you say it the other way, it "sounds" rather OK to me !


    There are some examples here too
    http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=998123

    I hope it helps... If some frenchspeaker wants to disagree its alright

    I forgot to close my explanation by "Et voilà!" (there you go, it's done)

    (And by the way, in this case, "et voici" is not ok...)

    Bon courage
