DO NOT be scared to bust out your high school French
A lot of Parisians speak a little bit of English, but not everyone does – and not everyone has to, because it’s France. But it can be frustrating to try to learn and remember French phrases, and it’s unnerving to speak French to an actual French person! Just dive in, try your best, and smile. They appreciate the effort, and you’ll have a much better experience. Look at it as an adventure – and if all else fails, just know you’ll never see that person whose language you’re butchering again.
