The previous post of this topic has been removed, sorry.
Thanks to @shellos for help on one of my characters who are French. And about my other side character (could I call her that or something else?), Violet. I’ve decided to change her from being from Bhutan to Indonesia. And now I need help from any forums users who are from Indonesia, so I won’t misrepresent her. In case you are wondering, here is what Violet looks like:
i can only answer 3 out of those questions and #3 she looks like someone who would be from paris,paris is the capatial of france its also the center for art,and fashion #6 depending on witch your asking for i know that in france/paris they eat a lot of pastries like macaroons and croissants #5 For french people they dont really have a spasific look to them they kinda just come from there and for the outher one if ther asian there eyes
I second this. I’m European too but I live in Italy, which is on the other side of Europe compared to Denmark. Quite different and well separate cultures here.
French speaking European countries are France, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and Monaco.
If I may, I can try to answer this
My country (Italy) borders with France and Switzerland. I’ve been to both before and tbf I’m not the best at distinguishing French from other Europeans. Abroad in Europe I’ve been mistaken as a German a couple times, just to make an example.
Stereotypically, I would say French/central European people tend to have straight-ish, light hair with lighter eyes, smaller noses and lighter skin tones. However… that’s just stereotype. French people with dark textured hair, dark eyes, stronger noses, and a richer complexion do exist.
I went to Nice on vacation a few years ago. I got there by train since it’s not that far from the French-Italian border. While I was there, there were a lot of times when I couldn’t tell Italians from French, Americans or Germans
(I am not Indonesian) - I am from New Zealand.
There are some things that I know, however, that could help you. I’m very surprised no Indonesians responded to this topic?
Here is what I could answer
English and Indonesian - (English you are required to learn, I am pretty sure. My friend from Indonesia speaks English. I’m sure she told me they learn English to help with studying. Regardless, a lot of Indonesians speak English there.)
The Indonesian language is called Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa for short. Or just Indonesian.
There is Javanese, which is considered a language. Where they speak in Java, which is apart of Indonesia. It’s regional. Which Region you live in determines what language you speak.
(Malaysia is its own country. But it is next to Indonesia. And the languages are almost similar.)
They eat quite a lot of white rice. Meaning, they eat rice with a lot of foods. Specific food to Indonesia: Sambal (Sauce), Satay (Sauce), dumplings…
The vowels of the language are as goes:
I (e - like pronouncing the letter E)
O (ooohh - like the ‘aw’ in “lawful”)
U (ooo - like ooo in “moo”)
The English they learn is perhaps USA English, I’m sure. They would sound american-ish but of course with the original Indonesian pronunciations in words and with tones. (Yes. A would be said as A if they were speaking English).
Indonesian accent. But it depends on which Region she’s from.
The only stereotype I can think of, is thinking all Indonesians live in those huts or in a village. Not all of them do. There are towns/cities.
