“Merci” et “merci beaucoup”
“Je ne parle pas Francais”
“Je ne comprende pas”
“Shit…I mean, merde!” (I try to fit in)
“Haben Sie ein…oh wait, wrong language….”
As you can see, I should be fluent in French in no time.
Something interesting I find is that I’ve been getting a lot of French people coming up to me and asking for directions. While my reply is never very helpful (given in a mixture of English, French and German words, leaving them completely confused), I find it quite exciting to think that so many people have mistaken me to be a local. If you can’t speak it, look the part i guess!
