"Parisiens being rude is a..." Stereotypes Tip by Carmanah

Stereotypes, Paris: 80 reviews and 39 photos

Parisiens being rude is a silly stereotype that shouldn't even be given a second thought.
Most people will completely appreciate your efforts for speaking French. I found that whenever I spoke French to people, they would always detect my North American accent and would start speaking English to me anyways. I found it a bit odd, but hey, I didn't question them!
