I had to go to Paris last week for a writing retreat. I met a bunch of pretty cool people and had some wonderful time wandering about the city, eating local food, shopping, and being in French. So I can say that Paris is my home base for French language learning.
You can definitely make a French-learning place in your own city. I’ve been to Paris several times, and it’s my second favorite place in the world.
You don’t have to be a native speaker of French to start with, but you will need to learn another language as a minimum. French is a language spoken by more than 1.4 billion people around the world. Even the most basic of French phrases can sound intimidating. It’s the language you use to order a pizza, ask for directions, order a coffee at a cafe, or ask a waiter for a menu.
The first thing I noticed when I booked the Paris trip was that the guidebook had a list of the places to visit in Paris and, for French speakers, the first question I asked was, “Are they all in Paris?” I was surprised when they were all in Paris, but they were pretty spread out. I also found it very helpful to ask the tour guide, “And are you fluent in French?” because they were the people who knew I was a Paris tourist.
French people are generally pretty good, but not perfect. In fact, when I wanted to find a particular place where a particular place was it took me a few seconds to look up the directions because I kept having to ask a passerby where to go. The same goes for the language though, so I had to keep my eyes pecked out. Still, if you asked a French person for directions, they would probably tell you.
The problem is that it is really hard for French people to give you directions. French people are notoriously bad about remembering to look up directions when you ask them for them, and even then they fail to find a single place. The one exception to this is in the big cities; it’s there that everything is in English.
If you want French people to remember to look up directions when you ask them for them, then you don’t need to ask them about it.
That being said, there is another way to find a place. You can look up the address at the top left of the Google map. If you are in Paris, or a large city in France, then you should be able to find an address for the exact location of your destination in French, rather than just for the street name. The address will be the same address as you are looking for in English.
In fact, there is a guide on Google Maps for French addresses. This guide is very helpful, but be careful when you use it. It can be a bit confusing, so if you find yourself in a situation where a French person is asking you for directions they are very likely not speaking English. This type of situation happens a lot.
In this case, you’re talking about the location of the house, not the location of a car parked in the street. A car is a vehicle that moves along the same route it did at the start of the game. It could be a car that was parked in the street, a car that was parked on the other side of the street, or maybe a car parked on the other side of the street, both of which are possible locations for a house to be located in.
