    WRONG

    I'm sitting in the airport in Vienna and my stupid flight has been delayed an hour. WTF?!

    I know ZERO French and have no idea how I'm getting to the hotel from the airport.

    I'm tired and hungry, sad from leaving friends and ready to pass out. But I have a feeling tomorrow will make it all better.

    A lot of the taxi drivers should speak at least basic English, especially if the taxis near the airport. Even if you knew the address of your hotel you'll be able to get to your hotel. ;)

    Good luck, it sounds like you might need it.

    Dude, learn some basic french fast! The French people don't respect people that don't try. You may be poorly treated by some people there if you don't now the basics.

    I don't think learning French in less than a day is an option... If things are that bad I guess you could try your respective embassy or consulate. They might be able to help you find your way around.

    Guide to make friends in different language.

    Learn 4 words of the language in question

    Thanks = Merci
    Please = S'il vous plait
    Beer = Bière
    Bathroom = toilette

    This is the knowledge you need to survive in hostile language environment. Especially the 3 first ones (4th is written on recognizable signs anyway) for 2 reasons.

    1- Respect brings respect, always smile!
    2- You want to have fun right, bière!

    Last thing, if you want to get somewhere and no one understands you, try to repeat the name of the street or monument you are going to, with some ''Merci''s and ''S'il vous plait'', and you will eventually find someone to help you.

    Have fun in France both of you!

    The French are very uptight about their language. (They even attempted to make the use of English a criminal offense!) So be careful, if you can't communicate in the language of the "French master race" they may treat you very poorly. I've heard some very strange stories about the culture there. Knowing French = surviving France. To some degree.

    That’s a bit overkill Prodigal.

    In Paris they use English all over their slang French, so don't worry about a lousy criminal offence for English speakers. You should talk to your mom about those bedtime stories she is telling you about French people ;)

    I was thinking this would be a fun trip for them, until you made me realize it was France.

    That alone would almost be enough to make me stay home... But it's StarCraft.

    @vodkachill

    Their legislature attempted to pass a law making speaking English in public a Criminal offense. It was shot down 60-40%. People are rude to you if you don't speak French. Unless your in a ghetto or something. Try going to a nice resturant, watch them not give you service.

    You should ask your mom to read more carefully to you while she changes your diapers!

    no, dont use the labtop, if you do you wont be able to post anything for a while, because you will be trying to hide the body and then clean your labtop. just use the lamp post. ^_^
