Language : the language spoken is french 100% but usually if you go on tour they have English speakers to help you & in tourism area they most likely speak english.


Currency : is Euro , on airports and tourism places you can go to a money exchange and they will switch your dollars.
Etiquette
Flowers should be given in odd numbers but not 13, which is considered unlucky.

Arrive on time. Under no circumstances should you arrive more than 10 minutes later than invited without telephoning to explain you have been detained.
