Well, I've done this before, for friends..
I don't mind, I understand .
I've always found the English who live in France and don't speak the language at all very brave, in a sense, because personnally, if I lived in a foreign country whose language I don't speak, I'd be scared that if anything should happen to me, and I was taken to hospital, I would not understand what the staff say about what they are going to do to me !!
Don't know why, that's always been my first thought !
Life has a habit of biting you on the bum in ways that you least expect.............
