Before I flew to Paris, my brain was full of all these BSs that the french were rude and unfriendly people, who *hate* to speak in english. It was very unlikely!!! The minute we stepped on the Parisian soil, these two gentlement offered to show us our way and carry our bags, 'in english',lol

When one of them asked me where I was from, i said i travelled from london. he was slightly struck but i comforted him that i was saudi arabian. then he made me laugh loudly when he said, 'cause the english don't like anyone', loool.

Almost everyone we met was friendly and trying their efforts to be helpful even when conversing in french. surprisingly i've found quite a few who spoke english very well!

believe me the french are quite nice and easygoing, very warmhearted...it's ok to speak english but just don't be too english,lol

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
