Etiquette in Paris: 15 Things Every Visitor Should Know

Read at the Frommer’s travelblog last month :

Language

One of the best ways to avoid being a stranger is to learn a little of the local language.

The French may appear prickly at first to English-speaking visitors, but it usually helps if you make an effort to speak a little French. A simple, friendly bonjour (hello) will do, as will asking if the person you’re greeting speaks English (parlez-vous anglais?).

Be patient, and speak English slowly?but not loudly.

A phrase book and language-tape set can help get you started.
