Definitely try to learn a few phrases in French, it will help you navigate the city better. Most people are friendly enough to help and honestly I think it very rude to expect someone to know your language when you are the visitor.

English is a widely known and spoken language, but most Parisians appreciate foreigners to be polite and at least try to say a few important phrases. Jot them down on a piece of paper and use them as needed. Or, with so many electronic tanslaters there really is not excuse.

On the many visits that I have paid Paris a visit I have never come across any rudeness or unfriendly people, on the contrary, they have all been very helpful.
