    i tried to use my bits of french, but didn't pretend that i was any good at it, and everyone was amused, and very cool about it. on our third night of our first visit to paris, we met some people who drove us around for the best spots to take photos, and every time we've been back they've taken us out to dinner, had us over to their homes for dinner, showed us the great local spots, etc. we looked everywhere for the stereotypical parisian snob, and other for a cabbie one time, didn't find it.

      That if someone at least makes an attempt in French, that pretty much gets you in their good graces in Paris.  What they can't stand are the people who don't even make an effort.
