I've been in Paris one time with my whole family. We started in London and we took the Eurostar to got there. It was fantastic experience! I thing Paris is a wonderful city, the French dshes, the sightseeing, the arquitecture, the french shops... About the languaje, was diferent beacause they don't like that the people speack English there.

Hi Santica,
I'm French and I think you're right about a part of French population who doesn't want to struggle to speak with foreign people. May be, it comes from our language learning system. It seems that French haven't wanted to travel overseas for years . But it's changing.

This is a great video. I really love to know something about Paris and I love to see Stephen trying to learn English. He is very handsome boy, tooo.

Yes, he is quite cute but little smooth. I wonder you're belong to LGBT, Douglas Paulino.

I went to Paris back in the days cause my Grandmother lived there, it was at the beginning of the 1980's. We visited Grevin's Museum where you can see wax-made famous figures of French History. Later on,in 1998 when I studied in Montpellier, I've been just next to the Stade de France in St Denis, close to Paris, to watch the Fifa World Cup final. The French Team won against Brazil, a great day.
Seeing as I'm French, I know a lot of dishes, one of my favorite is "le boeuf bourguignon", but there are many others.

I really like the vedeo . i wan't to visit Paris .

I've been in Paris before . It was fabulous to be there , everything was great . Me with my husband visited the Eiffle tower and we had enjoyed going on shopping and visiting Lovura museum . I remember taking picture with Monaliza's picture
so much to talk about ;-)

Haha haahah Aslie is eating Snail' Im in shock! and that scene made me soo entertain and I found this very funny and really enjoyed. Maybe I must tell you my first language was the French one untill my 18yo graduate my Lycee ending. I started to A,B,C basic English Alfabeth just after my 21 years old, and unfortunatelly stopped my French Lang education for couple of years. Oui, Je parle Francaise une petit peu. Mais Je besoin practise crois que ces la meme chose comme a LAnglais. :)
I've been in Paris only 3 days duration, really enjoyed visited classical, joing aRegular full day tour program and been and seen Canal tour, Eiffel, Museums, Disneyland etc thoses are recommended and very attractive places and worth to visit. One of my favoure one was to be in "National Museum of Natural History" Paleontology comes me very acttractiveness section of the Museum. Never taste Snail food when I was there. Frankly tells you that, their selected wines and more than 250 different fromages are always my favourites.
All the best
