Even if a French person does speaks English, and everybody with a Professional position in a Miulti National Corporation does speak English, and quite well; they do not like speaking English outside their work.

To top it off, the dude who started this thread went with his lady for French cuisine at a French restaurant in an American city !

Have a nice Valentine´s Day.
You just can't grasp that I was being humorous. Some people just can't get over themselves and take things way to serious. Since you just can't figure it out. I was making fun of myself, you know, the dumb American who wished he was able to read the menu. I have never expected anyone should speak english when I'm in their country. If I moved to another country to live, first priority, learn the language. What you wrote above is lecturing and I, as many others I'm sure, consider it quite rude.


If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!
