AnneG Posted November 5, 2008 Share Posted November 5, 2008 Americans who have visited France have told me that the French hate Americans. I refuse to believe that. I think some French might, but I think assuming they all do would be stereotyping them as well. --Darlene Darlene, you are absolutely correct. Many French (as well as other Europeans) rail against the 'typical American' (as they should). I've been to France many times, and on my first trip it astonished me how helpful they were, how they approached me to make sure I was going to the right place. I spoke French as best I could, and that helped tremendously. Make a little effort to respect their culture and they appreciate that.Anne Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
