Lance" Subject: Re: French linguistic legislation On several short trips to France in 1978/79 I had only one sorta negative experience. I'd come in from London and had no idea where the station for trains to Germany was. The lady in the info booth was rather short with me when I failed to understand that it was really only a short distance away. It was raining hard outside, in late December, with a bad cold front on the way, so grumpiness was not unexpected. Absolutely no other bad experiences. A couple of times French people recognized my American shoes and initiated a conversation in English. My mind goes blank when I try to remember all that French I recognize in print, so I used only English. DMLance
