I speak fairly good French and I was speaking French while in France but it didn't make much of a difference, people were still rude. I'm glad that others have had better experiences in France but it's definitely not a place for me. It's sad because I like French culture, movies, the food and wine. I grew up on French comedies. I was really looking forward to going to France and there were many things I liked in my stay there but I had a big problem with the people.
Also, I was in a skiing accident and the hospital I went to missed my broken pelvis and I was walking around in crutches for a couple of weeks afterwards until I came to Greece and it was diagnosed. And that was a University hospital too, the doctors here couldn't believe they missed it in France. I could have gotten serious damage from that.
