Letter: Accent on French

Click to follow
Sir: With an equally strong wish to use French while in France, I can understand Jane Marshall's irritation with their determined, perhaps even bloody-minded, hospitality in replying in English.

But at least she can understand what they are saying. Presumably because of my Scottish accent, my enquiries in French almost invariably elicit an answer in German or Dutch.

Yours faithfully,


Ripley, Derbyshire
