Well, on the accents, it's because I don't know how to put those accents on an American keyboard. There's probably an alt code for them, but I can't find it LOL.
And, like I said, I'm just starting to learn French. I still know more French than an average American, but not much more LOL.
Let's put it this way:
Our French class just started watching Telefrancais.
That's how far behind we are.
So, what are the alt codes for those accents, if there are any?

Besides, that's how I learned to say that line from my French teacher. Then again, she usually says (since it's an afternoon class.)

Moi, je suis tres content etre ici avec vous des l'apres-midi.

(Myself, I am very happy to be here with y'all ??? the afternoon.)

(I can't remember what Des means right now LOL. :( )

And yes, I know I forgot the accents, but I explained why in my previous post...

des is just the plurial of 'un' and 'une'. It doesn't have a translation in the English language

Wouldn't des just be 'of the'?
I'm just saying because un and une both mean 'A' or '1' (well, un means 1), and the plural form of those would be deux (two), right?

no. you gotta see it like this:

un ordinateur: a computer
des ordinateurs: computers

so as you can see, 'des' is just the plurial of 'un', but it doesn't has a translation in English

em... I'm belgian =). I just happen to know french because belgium is seperated into 3 parts: something like this:
46 % of people that speak Dutch
44 % of people that speak French
10 % of people that speak German

I live in the first part. But because of that reason we need to learn french at an early age (9-10 years old)

so... I'll raise my hand for the dutch people =)

I'm American, so I'll raise my hand for the Americans.

And Tinky, I'll have to double-check with my French teacher on that, but it sounds like you're a bit wrong there, because you wouldn't say 'a's computers'. I think that would be a bit more tike "Les ordinateurs." Wouldn't it?
Then again, you're probably right. I'm just not thinking in French right now, for some reason.

les ordinateurs= the computers =>
le ordinateur= the computer
so, that's a different plural version

and my french teacher said that 'des' didn't a meaning: it was just the plural.

at least 'des' didn't had a meaning in the dutch language. But I'm not exacly sure about the english language. But I think it also can't be translated in English.

anyway, it's better that you ask your teacher, then you're 100% sure

I didn't understand the meaning behind that "complete ass of myself" part of your sentence.. Whatever.

"I went to america with my family and we stayed in a hotel in florida near the ocean?"
"Je suis allé en Amérique (btw, continent or country?) avec ma famille et nous sommes restés dans un motel en Floride près de l'océan."

Well, in my opinion, America is supposed to be the contient, as in "North America" and "South America". I think that if you want to refer to the United States of America, you should say US or USA.
