Un français qui ne sait pas écrire le nom de Galois ? – Chandan Singh Dalawat May 26 '12 at 7:35
J'etais plus concentré sur le fait de faire une phrase passable en anglais plutôt que d'orthographier Galois correctement. Si cela vous a choqué, j'en suis désolé. – Amaury piette May 26 '12 at 9:40
Par ailleurs, en français, on écrit « un Français ». – Jérôme Poineau May 26 '12 at 12:37
