Wow...i am happy for you. visiting France is my dream and i haven't completed it yet. You can join to couchsurfing site to contact with people in there before you go. I used to meet/answer many guys through couchsurfing site when they visited hanoi.

Couchsurfing! I heard this! But I don't know how to join it. Is there a website about it?

That the French only speak French is not true. I have been there and I found many speaking English. In the meanwhile you can go on the Net and pick up some every day phrases which will come in handy. I am sure you must have already collected information on the places to see. Internet is such a place where you can learn so many things.

I know there are many people speaking English in france, and the Frenchman in our company are speak English! I just be afraid that the oral speech sounds between us, especially English is not our first language! The Tourist track has been planned, it will take 15 days! Maybe there is nothing to be worried in fact!

You seem to be more relaxed now. At worst you can use sign language!. I always had a feeling that the French were the arrogant kind but they are not! In fifteen days you can do a lot there. Eat, shop, watch shows, sight see. Dont' forget the Eiffel Tower. If they allow it go to the top most section of this beautiful tower. When it is lit it looks beautiful.

I was just in France for a day. You will manage as a lot of locals do speak English. The airport is amazing with 15 minutes free Wifi and also a lot of PS3 for travelers to play on while waiting to board. How long are you planning on staying in France and where about? Eifel tower is something you can't afford to miss and also try out some of the local bakeries.

Many French people do not speak English. I suggest you learn the basics and take a French phrase book with you. Have a think about whether or not you will like French food. If not you might be able to take some snacks with you from home. I recommend get a good map of the area of France you will be going to. You might need to check on-line train and bus times plus fares. I hope that you will really enjoy your trip to France.
