Recently (as always), I’ve been surfing the web in the evening. Sometimes, I listen to music on youtube and at the beginning of the music, there’s often an advert. The one that kept coming up was the head and shoulders one starting “Je suis dermatalogue…” Up to this point, nothing strange.
I saw the same advert on English tv the other day. It started like this: “I’m a skin specialist…”
The French always use the specific term for the doctor and somehow, they seem to know all the terms for the specific doctors – it’s very precise. For an English person arriving in France, it was like the French had all been to some kind of advanced university! I was using terms like back-doctor!
