    Why “Speakes only French”? Discrimination? No way!

      Hi Richi,
      I also know lots of multilingual French people. I just based the character on an architect I once taught, named Claude, who happened to be French. English speakers are also famous (rightly or wrongly) for not speaking other languages, but they wouldn’t have fitted the story (as they wouldn’t have needed to take English lessons!) .
