Je dirais le français. Il semble qu'il soit plus difficile de ruser en lui.
I'd say French. It seems harder for someone to weasel out in it.

I also have goldfish. It's difficult to hide what color they are because it's in their name.
Er hynny coch neu aur?
Red or gold though?
Quelle langue te semble plus fiable : le français ou l'anglais ?
Which language seems more trustworthy: French or English?
Ni l'un ni l'autre. Je crois qu'il serait plus précis de les appeler les poissons oranges. Les poissons rouges sont-ils de la même couleur que les oignons rouges?
Neither. I think it would be more accurate to call them orange fish. Are "red" fish the same color as red onions?

(Quoiqu'un poisson rouge soit bien de la même couleur que la gorge d'un rouge-gorge.)
(Although a "red" fish is the same color as the breast of a robin redbreast.)

I've got a sheepdog and his name's Simon. He likes to herd the cattle so I suppose he's a cattle dog.

Ben, non, c'est pas vrai. Je voulais seulement traduire ce que tu as écrit.

Well, no, that's not true. I just wanted to translate what you wrote.

Lo imparo tutto solo con la internet, la stessa maniera che io imparo il francese. Non faccio un corso. Parlo con la gente, cerco le parole e leggo gli articoli.
I'm learning it by myself on the internet; the same way that I'm learning French. I'm not doing a course. I talk to people, look up words and read articles.

J'aime les langues, mais je n'ai pas de plans spécifiques d'étudier une langue autre que le français.
/ʒɛm le lɑ̃g me ʒ nɛ pa d plɑ̃ spesifik detydje yn lɑ̃g otʁə k lə fʁɑ̃sɛ/
I like languages, but I don't have specific plans to study another language besides French.

Il y a quelques ans, j'ai étudié le ligurien et le piémontais pour compléter ma construction de langues.
/il j a kɛlkə‿zɑ̃ ʒɛ etydje l ligyʁjɛ̃ e l pjemɔ̃tɛ puʁ kɔ̃plete ma kɔ̃stʁyksɔ̃ d lɑ̃g/
A few years ago, I studied Ligurian/Genoese and Piedmontese to supplement my conlanging.

J'ai même posté quelques messages ici en … ligurien, si ma mémoire est bonne.
/ʒɛ mɛm pɔste kɛlkə mesaʒ isi ɑ̃ ligyʁjɛ̃ si ma memwaʁ ɛ bɔn/
I even posted a little here in … Ligurian, if I remember correctly.
