In any case it's good knowing multiple languages but my French isn't terribly good, as you will see, so i prefer to write in English.
Hilarious, francophone laugh! Yeah, I understand, plus if we both know English very well (english is my first language but I'm fluent in French, it's kind of a necessity where I'm from) then we shouldn't waist time talking ans then translating for these people.

This situation is making me think of that Belgian joke; two Belgian farmers meet in a café so the first says "hello, how are you?". The second replies: "Fine thanks. And you?"
"Also fine. Say, friend, do you speak Dutch too?"
"Yes..."
"Then why are we speaking English?"


Yeah, i know. My people isn't always very funny.
