Thing is with the French, if you only speak one or two words in French, and you speak them to a french person .. they think, from those few simple, un-properly-pronounced words .. that you speak fluent french, and come at ya speaking French a million miles and hour, leaving you looking like this Eh?  So as a rule, don't speak any French!  But don't worry if you don't, they'll forgive you, because we are British and ignorant and don't bother to learn other peoples language! lol

When I went to Paris last April, me and my friend were in a restaurant on the road leading up to the Arc De Triomphe and I was feeling very Frenchy so I tried to order food in French.  I asked for chicken, the waiter brought me an ice-cream!  Whistle

To be quite honest, I've never seen a French film.
I'm like you, my reading and vocabulary is good, but my speaking and understanding isn't really. I do speak enough French to find my way around France.

i did it (im at uni now).we had to do it for our last two years of primary school and it was more or less compulsory for the first four years of secondary (up until 16).i did it for another year which most ppl dont do and got a higher in it.most ppl dont bother learning another language properly tho.dutch is the most baffling language.it doesnt seem to relate to anything

Waw, I didn't know it was compulsory...
Dutch is very hard for people to learn, the French part of Belgium can chose to learn English or Dutch at school (which is really unfair cause the Flemish people have to do 3 languages and I have to do 5) and most French people learn English because Dutch is too difficult.
I wouldn't want to learn it either... Luckily, I have spoken it my whole life.
